- 1 Carrot, scrubbed
- 6 Shiitake Mushrooms
- 3 Green Onions, trimmed

Steps to Prepare
- Grate ginger, garlic, and carrots with the Shredder Blade into separate bowls. Switch to the Slicer Blade and slice mushrooms, green onion, and bell pepper into separate bowls. Switch to the Spiralizer set and spiralize the squash. Set aside.
- In a small bowl, mix together ginger, aminos (or soy sauce), Sriracha, sesame oil, and honey (or agave). Set aside.
- Heat one tablespoon of olive (or coconut or sunflower seed) oil in a large skillet or wok over high heat. Add garlic, mushrooms, and green onions. Cook for a minute, then add peppers, carrots, and water chestnuts. Cook for another minute, then add rice vinegar. Cook for another minute.
- Add the soy/ginger/honey sauce and spiralized noodles. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes until squash noodles are tender-crisp. Set aside.
- Heat the second tablespoon of oil in a separate pan over medium heat. Add shrimp and stir until firm and opaque on each side, about 2 to 4 minutes, depending on size.
- Arrange noodles in a bowl or dish and top with desired amount of shrimp. Garnish with sesame seeds.
- You may use soy sauce in place of Bragg's Liquid Aminos or agave in place of honey.
- Olive oil may be substituted with sunflower seed oil or coconut oil.
- Don't own a Veggie Bullet yet? Use a hand spiralizer to spiralize your fruits and veggies, a food processor to shred and chop, and a knife and cutting board to slice. Just expect to add additional prep time and use more counter space.
