Recipe: Zoodles with Pumpkin Seed Pesto


I hope you have already been playing with Zucchini noodles. They are super easy, nutritious and a great way to get more veggies in and avoid the starchy carbs.  You can find a single spirulizer in most grocery stores. I enjoy using one I purchased at Bed Bath and Beyond. I will place a link to it below.  

I like to use a pumpkin seed pesto on mine. Pumpkin seeds replace the traditional pine nuts. It gives it a wonderful flavor and a nice punch of zinc.  

What you will need: 


2-3 Zucchini

1/2 cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds

1 large handful of Fresh Basil

Olive OIl

Sea Salt

1-2 small cloves of Garlic

Follow instructions on how to use your spirulizer.  Make noodles.

In a food processor combine the remaining ingredients and blend. Test consistency with olive oil based on how thick you want your pesto to be.  You may also want more sea salt.  Once pulsed to a consistency you will enjoy, combine what you like to your zoodles. Eat alone or add any protein you enjoy!  

Let me know if you make it and how you like it!!
