Creamy Avocado “Pasta” (aka Zucchini Noodles)

Creamy Avocado “Pasta” (aka Zucchini Noodles)

posted in: Recipes | 3

Zoodles, aka Zucchini Noodles, are my latest obsession! Its the healthy way to enjoy pasta without the heavy, bloated feeling many of us get after eating a big bowl of white, refinedpasta! Zoodles are packed full of vitamins, minerals and fibre and this recipe has a delicious “creamy” sauce made using avocado instead of cream and butter! Winning! Oh and its vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free!

Ingredients:
(Serves 2)

  • 6 zucchinis
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
  • 1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbs nutritional yeast (I got mine from The Source Bulk Foods)
Method:
  1. Wash zucchinis & remove ends.
  2. Using a Spiralizer (see the little green gadget in the pic…You can get one from most supermarkets or online), spiralize all the zucchinis & then cook on a non-stick fry pan (can use a dash of rice bran oil if needed) until softened.
  3. Peel & mash avocado & place into a small bowl. Mix in olive oil, nutritional yeast & fresh chopped basil leaves.
  4. Mince garlic & cook on pan. Add into avocado mix with lemon juice & mix until smooth.
  5. Stir creamy avocado sauce through cooked zucchini spirals & enjoy!

**For an extra health boost, add some more veggies through you zoodles. I love adding pumpkin, opinion, tomatoes & mushrooms. Simply cook the veggies and stir through ready made zoodles.
