We are big fans of zucchini noodles, also affectionately known as “zoodles.” Skeptical of the buzz about zoodles? Squash any doubts! Zoodles offer a nutrient-packed, low-calorie and low-carb alternative to traditional pasta. Zucchinis and other summer squashes are full of fiber, protein and antioxidants, and are super hydrating. Can something so healthy truly be as tasty as a bowl full of pasta? With a little help from some naturally flavorful friends — you bet!
- Whisk the O California Extra Virgin Olive Oil and O Fig Balsamic Vinegar together with salt and pepper and set aside.
- Take a vegetable peeler and peel zucchini, then use spiralizer to create curly zucchini noodles (also known as “zoodles.”)
- Next, mix everything together, gently toss with vinaigrette and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
Tip: Don’t have a spiralizer? Don’t fret. You can achieve a similar outcome with a vegetable peeler or grater. However, we have to admit we’re big fans of spiralizers. Apples, beets, carrots and a long list of other fresh fruits and veggies can be spiralized to create countless healthy dishes.
