  4. Add a bit more ghee to the pan then add garlic cloves along with carrots and bell peppers. Cook until soft, about 6 minutes, then add in mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove and set aside. Pour whisked eggs into the pan and mix until scrambled then add in the veggies, shrimp, bean sprouts, zucchini noodles and green onions then pour in the sauce mixture. Toss and let cook for 3-4 minutes until noodles become soft.
