  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced

Instructions:

  1. Prepare the Protein: If using shrimp or chicken, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. If using tofu, press and cut it into cubes.

  4. Add the Noodles: Push the veggies to the side of the wok and add the zucchini noodles. Cook briefly until they are just tender.
  5. Create the Sauce: In a small bowl, mix together low-sodium soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce, and chili paste.
