Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a vegetable peeler or a spiral vegetable slicer, slice the outer zucchini flesh into lenthwise strips, discaring any seeds.
  2. Stack the strips and then slice them into thinner "noodles".
  3. Place the zucchini noodles in a medium bowl and add chopped tomato, olive oil, sea salt, and pepper.
  4. Place all pesto ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth, with just a few nuts visible for texture.
  5. Gently toss the zucchini and tomato mixture with just enough pesto to coat.
  6. Season with additional salt and pepper if desired.
  7. Garnish with pine nuts and basil leaves and serve.

FABULOUS...I added a touch of nutritional yeast to make it a little cheesy...also added some fresh lemon to the zucc. (I just like to do that with raw veggies some times) and threw in some sun-dried tomato and a little bit of red pepper flake ... FABULOUS!!!- a HUGE WINNER thanks so much!!

I've tried eating zoodles, but I just can't get past the crunch.
