One Pot Chinese Stir Fry Zucchini Rice

Recipes > Quick Meals

Unlike other low carb rice meals this one does not use cauliflower but rather it uses zucchini noodles to produce a rice effect and it works super well. This dish is super low calorie and would make a terrific accompaniment to a protein for a filling meal

Serves 6


  • 4 zucchini spiralised or one pkt of zucchini noodles
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 carrots finely diced
  • 2 brown onions finely diced
  • 2 teaspoons ginger minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 2 teaspoons chilli paste, optional
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1 red capsicum finely diced
  • 1 cup greens finely diced
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Peel, trim and spiralise your zucchini. Chop the zucchini noodles until it resembles long grain rice. Let drain on a few sheets of paper towel.
  2. In a frying pan or wok, heat the olive oil. Add the onions, carrots, garlic, ginger, chilli (if using), 5 spice powder, capsicum and green beans. Cook until nice and brown and caramelised, approximately 15 minutes
