I think we’re all looking for a way to get more vegetables in our diet (and maybe less carbs). 😬 A few years ago I discovered ZOODLES! Here’s a great Zoodle & Avocado Alfredo recipe.

Get your veggies, your fats, & satisfy your carb craving.

Original recipe can be found here.

Ingredients:

The sauce:

  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • Pinch of cracked pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup fresh basil
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (depending on consistency)

The zoodles:

  • 4 medium zucchini o (or carrots)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions:

  • Add all the sauce ingredients into a food processor, starting with just 1/4 cup of almond milk. Process on high until smooth and creamy.
  • Depending on the size of your avocado, you might need to add more almond milk. Add additional almond milk 1 tablespoon at a time, until you reach the consistency of a soft pudding.
  • Prepare the zucchini noodles by first spiralizing them into long noodles. Then heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and saute until fragrant, about 60 seconds. Add zucchini noodles and saute until just tender, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer zucchini noodles to a bowl and top with sauce. Toss to with salad tongs until all the noodles are evenly coated.
  • Divide evenly among four dishes and serve!
