Zucchini Noodle Pesto

Zucchini Noodle Pesto

Low Carb/Keto | Paleo | Vegan

I’m a stickler for simple recipes, and that’s why I kept the ingredients and steps in this recipe to a minimum.

If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know that a few weeks ago I bought organic herb plants! I named the basil one Bae, and the Thyme one Tim.

Snip the leaves off the plant when you’re done, water some more and leave it out in the sun so that they can regrow. Unfortunately, I eat the plants faster than they grow, and the next time I visit the grocer, I’m purchasing at least 2 more plants, at least one of them being another Basil! I’ll name it Bae #2.

I don’t own my own spiralizer, so I jumped at the chance to borrow my friend Edith’s. Together, we made zucchini noodles, a dish I’ve longed to try for the longest time. What I love about it is that Zucchinis are a vegatable, and having made them into noodle-like strands, you can save yourself a sh*t load of calories and carbs compared to regular pasta noodles. Typically, I always use 0 calorie noodles, but they’re much pricier than zucchini.

Zucchini Noodle Pesto avocado and tomato

Dude. I really, really love twirling on my fork. I used to do this with melted cheese, especially when I worked at Chipotle.

To garnish, I added some avocados and chopped tomatoes.

To make this recipe more fat-burning, you can sub in some of the extra virgin olive oil with MCT oil. I also personally love nut butter, so I added a little side of crunchy nut butter to the side of my bowl, as you can see above.

Do you own a spiralizer?

How do you like to garnish your dishes?

Do you prefer to have zoodles hot, or cold?

  • That looks delicious!
    I don’t have a spiralizer – I really want one! I currently use a vegetable peeler but I don’t love the process or the look/texture of the wide strips. Spiralizer is definitely on the wishlist!

    I tend to have the zoodles cold but sauces hot.

  • Zucchini noodles are one of my favorite dishes ever! I need a spiralizer of course XD have to try making this pesto!

  • Looks friggin’ DELICIOUS!!! I used to have a HUGE spiralizer but I gave it away because I used it 2x and I got a hand held one for XMAS. I don’t use it very often though, I honestly kind of forget about it!

    Zoodles and Pesto is one of my fav combos! I love avocado and/or cheese on almost anything and prefer my zoodles a hot. YUM!
