15 minute Avocado Dressing with Zucchini Noodles
If you're trying to eat healthier and haven't had zucchini noodles/pasta...Now is the time to start! All you need is a cheese grater a couple zucchinis and a gigantic bowl because you're going to want to eat a lot of them. Especially when you could eat about 16oz (that's a pound!) For under 80 calories and 17 carbs. They're super delicious, will keep you full, slim and healthy.
So, let's get started!
fresh basil leaves
ripe avocado, halved and pitted
lemon juice, approx. half a lemon
garlic, peeled and quartered
Salt and pepper to taste
Blend all of the ingredients in a food processor or quality blender (like a blendtec, bullet or any other blender that can make "sauces) on medium until smooth.
That's it. You're done!
Grate your zucchinis. Now, you can put them in a pan with 1/2 cup salt water and cook until soft, stirring occasionally - or - you can stick them in the microwave in a microwave safe container with the lid on, but not sealed (so steam can escape). For 2 minutes, with 1/3 cup salt water. Then drain.
This is ment to be a chilled dish, so put your noodles and sauce in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, dress with your favorite veggies and parm! I like tomatoes on mine :)
Happy noodle eating!
