This unique pasta dish consists of a few simple ingredients that are bursting with flavor: "zoodles" (spiralized zucchini "noodles") with avocado, peaches, and white beans! I love creating savory dishes with peaches because it add just the right amount of sweetness to a dish. When cooking with whole food ingredients, I really like to let the natural flavors shine and complement each other.

  3. Once the peas are softened, add sliced peaches and white beans. Season to taste. Cook 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add broth to the pan, along with tahini and zoodles.
  5. Toss everything together and let cook/simmer for 2-3 minutes, until the zoodles are soft and "sauce" thickens.
  6. add to plate, top with pumpkin seeds (sunflower would work here too), and sriracha. ENJOY!

Notes

No tahini? Try cashew or almond butter!
