Kiwi_Raw Zucchini pesto noodles 2

Ingredients

1 cup walnuts

2 cups herbs of choice (e.g., rosemary, sage, basil, thyme, and/or oregano)

3 garlic cloves

2 tablespoons olive oil

1⁄4 teaspoon sea salt

2 medium zucchini

regular or vegan cheese, if desired

Directions

To make the pesto:

1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place walnuts on a small baking sheet and roast for 5–6 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

2. Add walnuts, herbs, garlic, olive oil, and sea salt to a food processor. Mix until smooth.

To make the pasta:

1. Set zucchini on a cutting board and begin to pull lengthwise, using a julienne peeler. Watch as “noodles” begin to form. Continue until all zucchini has been julienned.

2. In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups zucchini pasta and 2 tablespoons pesto, stirring until combined. Top with cheese, if desired, and serve. (Additional pesto can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a month and also be used as a marinade for chicken.)
