Zoodles are tasty noodles created from courgettes!
2 medium courgettes/ zucchini,
washed half of an avocado
1/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup of cashew nuts
2 handfuls of spinach
1 garlic glove, finely chopped
juice from 1/2 lemon
half of small onion, finely diced
salt and pepper to taste sprinkle of chilli (optional)
How to make (serves 2)
Start by peeling or spiralizing the courgettes. If you like it crunchy use them as they are,otherwise you can cook them first, but don’t forget to let the water drain before serving. Once done set aside. Get your food processor or high speed blender and pop the cashew nuts in and pulse until it starts forming a paste. Now add the avocado, almond milk, spinach, onion, garlic and lemon juice and process until it becomes a smooth sauce/paste. Add pepper and salt to taste and add more seasoning if required (I like a bit more garlic and a few flakes of chilli). All that is left is to mix the sauce with the zoodles, add cherry tomatoes, garden peas and even a sprinkle of hemp seeds.
