In blender or food processor add the cashews, garlic and ginger and blend until a thick paste forms.  Add the sesame oil, vinegar, honey/nectar, coco aminos, sriracha, lime juice, coco milk and pepper and blend until creamy and smooth.  IMG_0103

Add the bell peppers and pour the sauce over the zoodles.  Garnish with chopped green onion, cilantro and sesame seeds/pepitas and season with pepper.

 

I modified this recipe found on Pintrest.  Mix it up with adding different veggies to the sauce, use carrots or quinoa pasta as the base, and add some more sriracha to spice it up more!
