Need some dinner inspo with a little bit of love? I can recommend some quick and easy vegan pesto zoodles made with a bunch of ingredients from Green Onions Organic Grocer.
4-5 large zucchinis
2 bunches of fresh basil
½ – ¾ cup of raw cashews
2-3 large garlic cloves
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
¼ cup + 3 tablespoons quality olive oil
2 – 4 tablespoons lemon juice
⅓ teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
pinch of nutmeg
In a food processor, add garlic cloves, 3 tablespoons olive oil, pepper, and cashews. Process until smooth.
Add nutritional yeast and salt and process to combine.
Add basil and ¼ cup olive oil and process again.
Finally, add lemon juice and process until combined.
Set the pesto aside until you’re ready to combine with zucchini noodles.
Chop about ½” off both ends of the zucchini and spiralize. Once you’ve finished spiralizing, add zoodles to a large bowl and mix in the pesto until well-coated.
Serve and enjoy!
