Three years into this whole full-time raw food thing and this is still one of my favorite meals. I can't explain it. It's always and reliably delicious, filling, and causes zero bloat or indigestion. I love it from the very center of my being. I decided to make it for a raw food potluck I had with the girls and needless to say it was a hit. I hope you find happiness in your pesto bowl much like I have!

Avocado Herb Pesto With Zoodles [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Serves

2

Ingredients

  • 2-3 zucchinis
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 handful each of fresh basil, cilantro, parsley
  • 1/4 cup of truly sundried tomatoes (not in oil), chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • a pinch of sea salt, to taste

Preparation

  1. Use a spiral slicer to make noodles out of your zucchini. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt and toss to coat. Place on some paper towels and allow the water to drain while you prepare the sauce. I prefer my noodles to drain for a few hours at room temperature.
  2. Combine the avocado, herbs, garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of seat salt in a food processor and process until smooth.
  3. Once the noodles are dry and soft, toss with the sauce. Add the sundried tomatoes and toss, once more.
  4. SERVE!

AUTHOR & RECIPE DETAILS

I am the girl in the Real Raw Kitchen. I’m mostly silly, extremely ambitious, and a Scorpio, which means I’m incredibly passionate about everything. I discovered this lifestyle and immediately fell in love — even became obsessed — and just went into it, full throttle. That’s the Scorpio side of me, I guess. The reason I stuck with it is because I started to feel significantly better. Now I hope to connect others to this experience.

I love the simplicity of avocado cream sauces - and this one sounds ultra good with sundried tomatoes! What an awesome way to keep it raw but add some extra zing!
