Creamy, Avocado-Basil Zoodles

February 17, 2017

 

Delish and SIMPLE! What more could you ask for? This dish is a crowd pleasure and it's a veggie-fest for sure! Packed full of yumminess and only takes about 20 minutes. Voila!

 

​What You Will Need:

 

  • 1-2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

  • 1/4 Yellow Onion

  • 1 C Mixed Peppers (Have fun with it, kick it up a notch with some spicy peppers) 

  • 1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

  • 1 Large Zucchini or 2 Regular Zucchinis, spiralized

  • 1 Shake of Red Pepper Flakes

  • Handful Petite Heirloom Tomatoes, halved or quarted

  • 1 1/2 Avocados, pit removed

  • 2-3 Basil Leaves, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon Chives, finely chopped

  • 1 Drop Lemon Essential Oil (can use lemon juice)

  • Parmesan Cheese (optional)

 

 

Assembly:

On Medium heat saute peppers, onions, garlic powder, pepper flakes, salt & pepper in olive oil, stirring occassionally. Start prep of sauce by scooping 1 1/2 fresh avocados into a new bowl, adding basil, chives, and lemon essential oil. Mix until you get a creamy consistency or you can leave lumps if you'd like! When the saute is nearly finished, add spiralized zucchini noodles (aka zoodles) to the pan with the quartered/halves heirloom tomatoes (farm stand find) and toss. You can substitute cherry tomatoes in its place. Saute until noodles are a soft consistency; you will know as it will gain a more translucent appearance. Add creamed avocado-basil from bowl into the zoodles and stir until evenly mixed throughout the dish. I plated with a sprinkling of fresh parmesan cheese but if you're trying to go dairy-free you can 'off' that addition. As always, enjoy!

 

Remember: Use organic whenever possible! :) Grow your own food (best), know your growers by buying local (better), or purchase in stores with the Organic USDA labeling (good). Pesticide-free/chemical-free is best for everyone!
