Zoodles & Kale Pesto
Was craving this today. Pesto pesto pesto, but with zoodles. Yummy and it hit the spot.
To make this, this is all you need:
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
2 cups kale/stems removed and saved for juicing
2 tbsp nutritional yeast
2 garlic cloves
1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
3 tbsp filtered water
1 small avocado
4 cups of spiralized zucchini
Soak sunflower seeds for a couple of hours or overnight. I added my seeds to boiling water and let them soak for about 5 minutes as I prefer a crunchier texture.
Drain & rinse seeds.
Add all ingredients to your mixer/blender & blend to your desired consistency. Be sure to scrape down the sides of the mixer to make sure everything gets incorporated well.
Serve with the above zoodles or with veggies or your choice. How about on crackers, use as a pizza base, spread on a sandwich or add to your favourite pasta. Many options as there is with an dip.
Hubby enjoyed his with some sauteed spinach, homemade sauerkraut & mashed potatoes.
Hope you enjoy.
