1- In a small bowl, whisk together the vegetable broth, hoisin sauce, soy sauce and cornstarch. Set aside.

2- Place a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and heat for 1 minute then add the garlic & ginger and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

3- Add the shrimp to the pan and cook, stirring as needed, until the shrimp are cooked throughout and pink on all sides (about 3 minutes or so). Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and then transfer to a bowl, leaving any extra liquid in the pan.

4- Increase the heat to medium. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan, then add the bell pepper, carrots, red onions and snow peas and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 to 4 minutes until the vegetables are crisp but tender.

Return the shrimp to the pan, stirring to combine, then add the zucchini noodles and cook, tossing to coat, for 1 minute.
