1. Combine garlic and spices together in a small bowl and set aside.

2. Preheat a skillet over medium high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the olive oil along with the sliced onions and bell pepper. Sauté until the veggies have softened, then add mushrooms and the garlic and spice mixture. Add vegetable stock, Greek yogurt and parmesan to link the sauce.

3. When the mushrooms have cooked for a couple of minutes and start to soften, turn the heat to high and add the zucchini noodles. Cook for a few minutes, you want them to still have a bit of crunch to them, not completely cooked through. Use a pair of tongs to toss the zucchini noodles in the pan as they’re cooking. At the end of cooking, add chopped parsley and toss quickly to combine.

4. Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional parsley, parmesan and fresh cracked pepper.

Note: Make sure to have everything prepared before actually turning on the stove so you won’t overcook your vegetables along the way.
