Serves

2 people

Ingredients 

For noodles
 medium-sized green zucchini (courgette), peeled

For sauce
¼ cup pine nuts
½ cup almonds
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

Method

  1. Grind almond in a blender (or food processor) into flour.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the sauce in a high power blender until smooth.
  3. Add filtered water to achieve desired thickness of sauce (making sure it doesn’t get too watery).
  4. 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.)
  5. Place spiralized (or julienned) zucchini noodles onto a plate and pour the red pepper sauce onto the noodles.
  6. Add halved cherry tomatoes and basil.
  7. Mix all ingredients together and dig in!
