You can easily make this Asian-inspired bowl healthier than takeout by using zucchini noodles! That's one easy way to sneak some veggies into dinner, but this recipe also has mushrooms, carrots, radishes, and snap peas, so you'll definitely work in a few servings of vegetables.

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 12 ounces pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut into very thin bite-size strips*

  • ½ cup water

  • 2 tablespoons white miso paste or reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

  • 2 cups thinly sliced fresh shiitake (stemmed) or button mushrooms

  • ½ cup thinly sliced shallots

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh ginger

  • 2 14.5 ounces reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 carrots, peeled

  • 1 or 2 small yellow summer squash and/or zucchini

  • 1 cup snow or sugar snap pea pods, cut diagonally into 1-inch pieces

  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced

  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted

  • Sriracha sauce (optional)

Directions

  • Coat a 4- to 6-qt. nonstick Dutch oven with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add meat; cook and stir 2 minutes. Remove from pan.

    In a small bowl whisk together the water and miso paste. In Dutch oven heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms and shallots; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add ginger; cook and stir 30 seconds. Add miso mixture and broth to mushroom mixture. Bring to boiling.

    Meanwhile, using a vegetable peeler, cut carrots lengthwise into thin ribbons. Using a vegetable spiralizer or julienne cutter, cut squash into long, thin noodles.** Add carrot ribbons and pea pods to mushroom mixture; cook 3 minutes. Add meat and squash noodles; cook 30 seconds more or just until heated through. Top servings with radishes, sesame seeds, and, if desired, sriracha sauce.
