Zucchini Noodles with Broccoli and Peanut Miso Sauce

This one doesn’t totally fit into the cleanse, but I am going to pretend like it does ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol

I really love the sauce in this recipe. It is creamy and a little bit salty. I was in heaven *sigh* The fresh zucchini gives this recipe a nice lightness. And the broccoli and chickpeas really fill you up. I wanted to eat seconds and thirds. Super yum and a great way to treat yourself during a cleanse.

Zucchini Noodles with Broccoli and Peanut Misoย Sauce

Based on a recipe by The Taste Space

  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas, rinsed and drained if canned
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped broccoli florets

Grate your zucchini. Then make your sauce (recipe below).

Chop the shallot. Toast your sesame seeds. Chop your broccoli.

Steam broccoli for 2-3 minutes.

Make a bed of raw zucchini and top with chickpeas, broccoli, shallots and sesame seeds. Drizzle with dressing.

Peanut-Miso-Sesame Sauce
