Zoodles in Avocado Sauce


Zoodles anyone?? I know there are lots of people trying this recipe out at the moment and I wanted to give it a go too… I think it looks interesting… what do you think??  Let me know your thoughts

I was at the Brighton Foodies Fest a few weeks ago and purchased a vegetable peeler that came with a spiralizing attachment too! So I’ve been excited to try this recipe out as I wanted to play with my new kitchen gadget… ๐Ÿ™‚ 

This peeler is small hand-held one perfect for me as I have a small kitchen, no space for big bulky one

To be honest, this is one of those dishes that looks quite appealing to me, it is a dish that makes one feel instantly healthy just be looking at it!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I must say it photographs well too!

What else you ask? Well, it did taste good & was very quick to put together, so that always helps me as I tend to love quick and easy recipes mostly


Here is how:

Time: 15mins

Ingredients:

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 handful of fresh basil
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of pine nuts
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 2 stems of the spring onion (only the green part)
  • freshly ground black pepper(according to your taste)
  •  2 large rip avocados

Start by rinsing and running the zucchini through the spiralizer and keep aside

Heat a pan and slightly toast the pine nuts until light brown. Keep your eyes on them as they tend to burn quickly otherwise!

Then rinse the herbs and put them onto a food processor/ blender, scoop out the avocado and add along with garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, spring onions, sprinkle salt and pepper, then blend to a fine paste

Now, you can either choose to mix the herb pesto into the raw zoodles or lightly toss the zoodles in a pan to warm up, until slightly cooked and then mix in the pesto

Please serve as soon as the pesto is mixed in as the salt in it tends to make the zoodles soggy!

Serve as a salad or along with some protein on the side to make it a complete meal

Tip: While mixing the pesto in, use your hands its much easier and faster that way!
