Chicken Apple Sausage with Zucchini Noodles (Serves 1)
Combing a zucchini with a julienne peeler creates excellent noodles in minutes. The texture is similar to thin spaghetti, but richer in nutrition. There is no butter in it, but the juice of the cooked zucchini noodles look and taste buttery. I like them with the Applegate Farms chicken and apple sausage that I get at Whole Foods Market.
Prep Time and Cook Time: 15 minutes
2 chicken apple sausages
1 sweet yellow onion
Directions: Hold zucchini down on a cutting board. Use julienne peeler to create noodles by dragging the peeler along the body of the zucchini from top to bottom repeatedly. Cut the bottom layer into “noodles” with a knife if you hate to waste zucchini like me. (You can just discard the bottom layer if you are satisfied with the volume of julienne noodles). Add one or two tablespoons of coconut oil to a wok over medium to high heat. Finely chop onion, add a handful to hot oil in wok, and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cut sausage into bite-sized pieces. Add zucchini noodles to wok and season with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper to taste. Add sausage. Stir mixture, cover wok, and let cook for 5-10 minutes over medium heat. Transfer food to a bowl and enjoy!
Note: See the julienne peeler in my online Store. More recently I have been making noodles of a mixture of yellow squash and zucchini.
