Creamy Avocado Pesto Noodles

Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste

 

Instructions

Using a spirailizer make your zucchini noodles (zoodles).
Prepare a steamer and steam noodles for 25 minutes over medium heat on the stove.
For the creamy sauce, combine the rest of the ingredients in the food processor and blend until completely smooth.
Once the noodles are cooked, transfer them to a bowl of ice water for about 3-5 minutes until they are chilled (you can opt out this step if you prefer a warm dish).
Gently stir the creamy sauce into noodles and serve.
