We love zucchini noodles in the AHP test kitchens! They’re not only super fun to eat, but they’re a creative way to add in more veggies into your life. And while they don’t replace noodles they’re equally delicious in their own right. Since summertime is peak season for zucchini, I figured it would be fun to put together a few of my AHP fav’s using these cute little veggie noodles.

OH and these are just a few of our go-to’s if you want to see the whole list just type “zucchini noodles” or “zucchini ribbons” into the AHP search bar and see what comes up!

Thai Pork Curry with Zucchini Ribbons AHP 193

Curry powder is one of the oldest and most widely-used spice blends in the world, particularly when it comes to South Asian cuisine.

Colorful, exotic and delicious!
