Pizza Noodlezzz

Total Time: 45 minutes
Serves: 4
Ingredients:
 
Zucchini Noodles
  • 2 to 2 1⁄2 pounds zucchini
  • 1 tablespoon salt
Toppings
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon coarse (granulated) garlic powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 (4-ounce) package uncured pepperoni
  • 1⁄2 cup pitted black olives
  • a few pickled jalapeño slices
Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 (28-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1⁄2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1⁄2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon coarse (granulated) garlic powder
  • 1⁄8 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 large eggs
  • 10 to 12 fresh basil leaves
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for garnish
Instructions:
  1. Prep the noodles. Julienne the zucchini with a spiralizer. Place the noodles in a colander and toss them with the salt until the strands are lightly coated. Set the colander in the sink to drain while you prep the other ingredients.
  2. Cook the meat toppings. Heat a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble the pork and beef into the skillet and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. While it cooks, combine the salt, parsley, Italian herbs, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, fennel seeds, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. When the meat begins to lose its pinkness, add the seasonings and mix to combine. Cut the pepperoni slices in half. When the meat is browned and sizzling, add the pepperoni and stir-fry until slightly crisp. Transfer the meats to a large bowl.
  3. Make the sauce. In the same pan you used for the meat, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. While it heats, peel and crush the garlic. Add the garlic to the pan, and when it’s fragrant, after about 30 seconds, pour in the tomatoes. In a small bowl, mix together the oregano, basil, parsley, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and red pepper flakes; stir with a fork and add the spices to the pan. Stir to combine, bring the sauce to a boil, and then reduce the heat to low. Beat the eggs in a small bowl, add a spoonful of the tomato sauce to the eggs and stir to combine, then slowly pour the egg mixture into the tomato sauce, stirring constantly to combine. The sauce should thicken slightly and get silky. Keep the heat on a very low simmer.
  4. Cook the noodles. Heat a second large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Rinse the zucchini noodles under running water, drain, and squeeze dry in a clean dish towel. Add the noodles to the heated pan and stir-fry, 2–3 minutes until hot. Add the meat, olives, and jalapeño slices; toss to combine. Use a ladle to add tomato sauce to the noodles, stirring to combine after each addition so it doesn’t get soupy. Add the fresh basil and stir.
  5. To serve, divide the noodles among flat bowls, then sprinkle each with crushed red pepper flakes and a drizzle of olive oil.

Moo Shu Stir-Fry

Serves: 4

Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

Veggies

1 oz. dried wood ear mushrooms (or any type you can find)

1/2 medium head green cabbage

4 scallions

1 (8 oz.) can bamboo shoots

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

5 oz. sliced shiitake mushrooms

2 heads fresh butter or Boston lettuce

Pork

2 lbs. ground pork

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

2 cloves garlic

1/4 cup coconut aminos

1 teaspoon sesame oil

Hoisin Sauce

2 cloves garlic

1 medjool date or dried fig

1/2 cup coconut aminos

1/4 cup sunflower seed butter

4 teaspoons rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon hot sauce

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions:

1. Place the dried mushrooms in a small bowl and cover with water; set aside to rehydrate. Then thinly slice the cabbage and scallions. Drain the bamboo shoots.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes. Crumble the pork into the skillet and cook, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until it is just pink, about 3 minutes. While it cooks, make the sauce.

3. Make the sauce; place the garlic in pint-size mason jar (or bowl). Remove the pit from the date and drop the date in, then add the coconut aminos, sunflower seed butter, rice vinegar, sesame oil, hot sauce, and black pepper. Blitz with a stick blender until smooth; set aside.

4. Add the arrowroot powder to the pork and stir to combine. Peel and crush the garlic; add it to the pan with the coconut aminos and sesame oil. Stir to combine and continue cooking until the liquid is mostly evaporated and the meat is cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Transfer the meat to a large bowl.

5. Cook the veggies; place the oil in the same skillet you used for the pork and reheat it over medium-high, 2 minutes. Add the cabbage and shiitake mushrooms to the pan and toss until the cabbage has wilted, about 10 minutes. Drain the dried mushrooms and add them to the skillet along with the bamboo shoots and scallions; toss to combine. Return the pork to the skillet with any accumulated juices and stir-fry until heated through, 1-2 minutes.

6. Serve family style with a platter of butter lettuce leaves, cauliflower rice, and the hoisin sauce for drizzling.
