Here’s one for those hot summer days when turing the oven on is not an option. It’s for the days when you don’t feel like being in the kitchen, but still want to eat something fresh and healthy (and maybe pair it with a chilled glass of white wine?).
It’s an easy dish to make for 1 – or to double the ingredients and make for a few people. It’s also a perfect dish for a summer dinner party, and takes 5 minutes to make.
- 1 zucchini
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- 1 ripe avocado
- a few fresh basil leaves
- 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
- olive oil, sea salt, black pepper
Spiralize 1/2 – 1 full zucchini to create noodles. Toss with fresh lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt, black pepper. (I have a really simple, hand-held spiralizer that I bought for $10 and it works beautifully)
Separately, cut the avocado into bite size pieces, halve the tomatoes, and chop the basil. Mix together.
Set the tomato mixture on top of the zucchini “pasta” and enjoy.
(Serving suggestion — pictured above, I added a side of falafel and hummus for some added protein and substance)
