Sweet & Spicy Butternut Squash Noodles

Super simple and ready in a snap, these Sweet & Spicy Butternut Squash Noodles are an excellent dish to whip up for lunch or a weeknight dinner. These noodles are so full of flavor and are a lower carb version of traditional noodles. I used packaged butternut squash noodles, but you can also make your own with a spiralizer.

The sauce for these noodles is really what gives this dish it’s pizzazz! Made with San-J Tamari, honey, mirin, rice vinegar, chili garlic sauce, and sesame oil, this sauce is well balanced with some sweet and some spice and it would go great on all sorts of foods, such as chicken, sauteed broccoli, and more.

You can serve these noodles with crispy pan-fried tofu, sesame chicken, or teriyaki-style beef to add some additional protein, or steam some broccoli and carrots to add some additional veggies. And of course, you can serve the noodles as-is for a satisfying, yet light, meal.
