Zoodles (zucchini noodles) with Cilantro Lime Avocado Sauce

Posted in : MAIN DISHES on by : Admin

Tender spiralized zucchini tossed with a quick cilantro lime avocado sauce.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 large zucchinis (or 3-4 small zucchinis)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 avocados
  • juice of 1 lime
  • large handful of cilantro (about 1/3 cup loosely packed)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic (or 1 teaspoon garlic powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • water as needed
  • Instructions

  • Slice the ends of your zucchinis off. Use a spiralizer to make your zucchini noodles. (My spiralizer has two blade sizes, I used the “large” spiral). Fill a large pot with 2-3 inches of water. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Add zucchini noodles and boil about 2 minutes (do not over boil! They will turn mushy!) drain and set aside.
  • Add avocado, lime juice, cilantro, garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil to a food processor or high powered blender. Pulse until smooth. Add water 1-2 tablespoons at a time, pulsing between each, as needed til mixture reaches a pourable consistency.
  • At this point you can serve your sauce at room temperature and pour it over your zucchini noodles immediately, OR you can transfer mixture to a microwave safe bowl and heat it up for a few seconds to serve it warm – both are delicious!
  • Toss noodles with sauce and serve. Garnish with additional chopped cilantro and/or toasted pine nuts if desired.
