Zucchini Noodles with Avocado & Mint Pesto

These zucchini noodles with avocado & mint pesto make a delicious lunch or side dish. Made with a few simple ingredients, and ready in 10 minutes.

I’ve been so excited to try making my own Zucchini Noodles at home, and I finally got a chance to try out our new spiralizer yesterday.


It works giant pencil sharpener, and only took about 10 minutes to produce a whole bowl of zoodles! The green spiralizer in this photo came from our local kitchen store, and was only $15. Definitely a great investment if you love raw veggies!

This recipe is so easy! Wash all the veggies well, then spiralize the zucchini into a medium sized bowl. In a food processor, add the avocado, garlic, lemon juice, mint, basil, oregano, olive oil and salt & pepper. Blend until the sauce is creamy and smooth.
