Ultra creamy sauce that is not only yummy but good for you! You do not have to worry about carbs because the ‘noodles’ are made out of shredded zucchinis and carrot! Read about the health benefits of zucchinis HERE and the goodness of avocados HERE.
You can even eat it raw if you like, which is even healthier. I like my zucchini and carrot softer so I cooked it for a couple of minutes. Serve with Lime Parsley Prawns if you like a little seafood with your ‘pasta’.
Ingredients (Serves 2)
- 2 med to large zucchinis, shredded
- 1 med carrot, shredded
- 1 tbsp EVOO
- 1 ripe avocado

- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

- Chopped parsley for garnishing
Prep your ingredients, shred the carrot and zucchini lengthwise.
Add lemon zest, lemon juice, avocado, basil, salt, and pepper into food processor.
Blend until creamy, you may have to scrape down the sides a few times.
It should look like that.
If you like your sauce a little more diluted, you can add 1 tbsp olive oil.
Scoop sauce out into a big mixing bowl.
You can skip the cooking process if you prefer your veg raw.
