Hey everyone. I am so excited to bring you all this amazing Guest post, but before I do I have some BIG news. I finally started my Youtube Channel and I started with a video to just say thank you to all of you. Every reader, every visitor, every family member and every friend who have supported me up until this point and will continue to do so going forward. This is an amazing recipe and I am happy with my first video so watch below and then get to cooking :)
Here is the delicious recipe from Ali, the creative genius behind Inspiralized.
Whether you’re craving a big takeout container full of shrimp lo-mein or you’re jonesin’ for a bowl of beef bolognese, I have the best (and still Paleo!) way to satisfy your craving: zucchini noodles. Who am I and how do I know this? I’m Ali, the blogger at Inspiralized, a food blog dedicated to cooking with the spiralizer, the kitchen countertop tool that turns vegetables into noodles in seconds. Paleo eaters don’t have to give up pasta or noodles any longer, once they discover the powers of the spiralizer. Not only are these noodles Paleo, they’re low-cal, low-carb, low-fat, gluten-free and most importantly, you’re eating vegetables that leave you feeling light yet full, thanks to their rich nutrient and fiber content.
Once your spiralizer arrives, you’ll be making your favorite Italian pastas and Asian noodle dishes in no time. Today, we have a warm and comforting beef and zucchini noodle soup, spruced up with baby bok choy, shitake mushrooms, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. The coconut aminos tops it all off, you won’t realize you’re eating a bowl of vegetables. Grab your chopsticks and enjoy!
For information on where to buy the spiralizer, how to use it, and a food blog full of other resources and recipes, visit me at www.inspiralized.com.
Guest Post: Beef Noodle Soup with Shitake Mushrooms and Baby Bok Choy from Spiralized
- 1/2 large zucchini peeled, spiralized
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 3 oz NY strip steak cut into 1" cubes
- 1/4 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
- 1.5 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup of water
- 1 cups chicken broth homemade
- 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
- 1 head of baby bok choy roughly chopped (about 3" pieces)
- 1/2 cup shitake mushrooms about 6 mushrooms
- 1/4 heaping cup chopped green onions
- salt and pepper to taste
- Season the beef cubes with salt, pepper and lightly pat with olive oil.
- Place a large saucepan over medium heat and add in 1 tbsp of the olive oil.
- Once the oil heats, add in the garlic.
- Once the garlic heats, add in the beef and cook for about 1-2 minutes per side or until it is still rare in the middle but seared on the outsides.
- Remove from the saucepan, leaving in the garlic, and set aside.
- Place the rest of the olive oil in the same saucepan and add in the red pepper flakes, bok choy and mushrooms. Stir to combine and cook for about 2 minutes.
- Add in the water and chicken broth and bring to a boil.
- Once boiled, add in the coconut aminos. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add in the beef, zucchini noodles, and half of the green onions. Cook for 2 minutes and then pour into a bowl.
- Top with remaining green onions and enjoy!

Can I do a big batch and frooze it? What about the noodles?
It would be great if you could add for each meal how to freeze it!
I love your recipes. I discovered you recently through Paleo Parents. Would this work with a tuna steak? I’m not sure if the flavors will work together. My husband is not eating meat right now, but fish is still okay. What do you think?
Thanks for the recipes and inspiration.
I think you should definitely try it. Let me know how it turns out!
The spiralizer is a LIFEsaver! I highly recommend the Paderno
Great :) Glad you were able to improvise and make it work.
I saw this recipe and knew I had to try it. I was craving soup even though it’s in the 80’s here in Florida – haha! I bought a spiralizer 6 months ago and it’s been neglected on top my fridge so I was happy to use it! I forgot how much I love making noodles with that thing and really need to remember to use it more! I added some of my favorite spices and tossing the meat in some coconut flour, cooking it in the same pot as the soup but other than that I followed the recipe. I loved it!! Great leftovers too! And, I love your site. I’ve been following for a while now and have tried many of your recipes – they’ve all been great! Keep up the great work hun! :)
Thanks! I’m glad it worked out well for you
If you’re looking for more recipes, I bought this recipe book recently and it had TONS of awesome paleo recipes!! Here is the link to check it out if you are interested. I highly recommend it!
Thanks for the recipe and all that you do for the paleo community! I have to admit it was inspiring hearing more about your story, but I was slightly distracted drooling over all the gadgets and recipe books behind you! :-) how about a video where you give a tour of your kitchen?
My kitchen is so small but I will add it to the list
I have the spiralizer!! I bought it for myself and ended up using it daily because suddenly the kids are suddenly into vegetables! I make this naughty treat for them (not more than once a month and I hope I don’t get banned for saying it) but I deep fry spiralized potatoes for them and serve them on a shishkebab stick. They only get them as a treat AFTER a plate full of other spiralized fresh veggies..
Haha I would never ban you, I want those now :)
those noodles look amazing, just added the spiralizer to my wish list. i will own one some day.
This recipe looks great!! I have to try it. Thanks for a great website and best wishes for all your procedures.

This recipe looks delicious!!! Sometimes I really miss “noodles” and this will be the perfect recipe to try. I will keep you in my prayers for all your upcoming health procedures. God bless you and thank you for all your wonderful recipes. Those that contain eggs I’m working on to make egg free. I always look forward to your email updates, recipes and sharing!
Love, Love, Love my spiralizer!!! It’s fast and fun! Quick question, the recipe says chicken broth. Is it chicken or beef broth? Seems odd, but who knows! ;) Just checkin’, I’m making this

Either one Amy
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my spiralizer!!! It’s fast and fun! Quick question, the recipe calls for chicken broth…should it be beef broth? Seemed a little odd, but who knows? Just checking…I’m making this tomorrow! Thanks again for all you do, George!!
I can’t wait for my spiralizer to get here so I can make this!
