Ingredients List

To get things rolling with our Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Sauce, you will need:

  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • The juice of one lemon
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • Grated parmesan cheese for garnishing (optional)

Instructions

  1. Let’s begin by transforming our humble zucchinis into beautiful noodles using a spiralizer or julienne peeler. Once done, set aside the zucchini noodles, affectionately known as “zoodles”.

  2. Next, we dive into creating the velvety avocado sauce. Peel and pit the avocados, putting the flesh into a blender or food processor.

  3. Add in the garlic, lemon juice, basil leaves, salt, pepper, and olive oil into the blender as well. Blend until a creamy consistency forms, adjusting seasonings as desired.

  4. In a large bowl, combine the zoodles with the avocado sauce, mixing until they’re evenly coated and beautifully green.

  5. Before serving, sprinkle some grated parmesan over the dish if desired. Voilà! Your Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Sauce are ready!

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I store leftover Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Sauce?
    Yes, definitely! But remember, the avocado sauce can brown slightly when exposed to air. To avoid this, press a piece of cling wrap directly onto the sauce before refrigerating.

  2. I don’t like basil, what can I replace it with?
    You can replace basil with fresh coriander or parsley. It’s all about personalising the dish to your preference!

  3. Can I cook the zucchini noodles?
    Yes, if you prefer cooked zucchini noodles, you can sauté them lightly. However, overcooking might make them mushy.

  4. What’s an alternative to spiralizing zucchini?
    You can use a vegetable peeler to make thin ribbons if you don’t have a spiralizer.

  5. Can I make the dish vegan?
    Absolutely! Simply skip the parmesan cheese or use a vegan substitute.
