1½ medium-sized green zucchini (courgette), peeled
¼ cup pine nuts
½ cup almonds
1½ red bell pepper (capsicum)
½ tbsp lemon juice
1½ tbsp tamari (gluten-free, naturally brewed Japanese soy sauce)
1 tbsp raw honey
Pinch of sea salt
¼ cup filtered water, or more to desired thickness
(Alternatively, you can try a savoury seed sauce, see recipe here)
Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
Handful of fresh basil, finely chopped
- Grind almond in a blender (or food processor) into flour.
- Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a high power blender until smooth.
- Add filtered water to achieve desired thickness of sauce (making sure it doesn’t get too watery).
- Use the spiralizer to process the peeled zucchini into spiralized noodles (Note: if you don’t have a spiralizer, just cut the peeled zucchini into quarter length, then into short thin strips.)
- Place spiralized (or julienned) zucchini noodles onto a plate and pour the red pepper sauce onto the noodles.
- Add halved cherry tomatoes and basil.
- Mix all ingredients together and dig in!
