I am so excited about this stir fry recipe because it fits in perfectly with all the lifestyle and meal routine changes I’ve been making in 2018, and it has lots of veggies — my favorite food group. My next favorite food group is carbs, and while I will never completely stop eating them, I love finding tasty replacements for them — like the spiralized carrots in this recipe!
Easy Asian Stir Fry Recipe with Carrot Spirals
If you think I spiralized them myself, you’d be wrong! I do have a spiralizer, but I’ve never used it, and now that I’ve discovered the new Green Giant® Veggie Spiralsat Walmart, I may never need to take it out of the box. The veggie spirals are made with 100% vegetables and since Green Giant smartly decided to skip the sauce and seasoning, they can be served any way you like. Use them as an entrée, a side dish, or soup!
I’m using them in my entrée as a gluten-free swap for noodles, and I love that they have fewer calories than pasta (65 percent to 90 percent fewer per serving than the leading brand of spaghetti).
The veggie spirals can be cooked on the stove top or in the microwave (still in packaging) in minutes, then you drain them exactly like you would for pasta. They look amazing, don’t they?
I cooked my veggie spirals in the microwave, drained them and added them to my stir fry sauce pan. I tossed the veggies around to get them covered with the delicious sauces and seasonings I used, and in just a couple of minutes I had dinner on the table.
And my family and I loved it soooo much! I can see myself replacing noodles regularly with Green Giant® Veggie Spirals, and since they’re available in four varieties: Carrots, Butternut Squash, Zucchini and Beets, the possibilities for delicious meals are endless.
