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!

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!
