zoodles + pesto

I love pesto.  I love it, even more, when it's made purely from plants.  The pesto recipe is not only versatile - add it easily to soups, pizza, nourish bowls - it will only take you five minutes to whip up.  I mixed it in with some zoodles (zuchinni noodles) that I made from two smaller zuchinnis with my spiralizer. 


  • 2 cups fresh basil 
  • 3 tbs pine nuts
  • 5 (or really however much or little you want) garlic cloves
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbs nutritional yeast (adds that cheesy flavor!)
  • 1/4 tsp pink salt
  • 2 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 oz filtered water



Add all ingredients into your food processor and pulse until desired consistency.  You can add more water if need be.  


I paired my noodles with some simple, yet delicious, lentils and rice for added bulk because you guys know, I'm always hungry.
