Zucchini Noodles with Creamy Avocado-Basil Sauce

Main Dishes

zucchini noodles and avocado basil cream sauce

This is a great dish to have when you are craving a fresh healthy meal, but don’t feel like actually cooking something up. The creamy avocado-basil sauce is really fantastic and light. It doesn’t end up leaving you have that full bloated feeling that you would normally get with thick heavy creamy sauces. The noodle dish itself is not only super good, but also is just beautifully vibrant with the colorful fresh veggie ingredients.

Directions

  1. Prepare the sauce by mixing all the ingredients thoroughly until smooth. Add more olive oil if the consistency is too thick. Taste test and adjust as necessary. You can also use a Food Processor if you have one. I just mixed them thoroughly by hand.
  2. With a Spiralizer spiralize zucchinis with Blade C (the small noodle tray option) and place into a bowl. Add in cherry tomatoes cut in half, basil leaves, salt and pepper. Then toss with ½ of the Avocado Basil Sauce and taste test to add more sauce.
  3. Ready to be served and devoured!
