Playing With Zucchini!
Since I've decided to stay away from processed foods as much as possible, it has forced me to be a little more creative in the kitchen and seek out recipes that utilize whole food ingredients. I was craving some pasta the other day and have seen countless recipes using zucchini as the "noodles", so I decided to give it a try! All I did was wash the zucchini and with a peeler, I made strips to resemble the noodles. I sauteed up some onion in the pan until soft and then added in the zucchini and sauteed them both together for a bit until the zucchini was also soft and added in some nutritional yeast, pink Himalayan sea salt, pepper, Trader Joe's all seasoning salute and a little garlic powder. I also have some marinara sauce that I'm trying to use up, so I just put about a tablespoon of that over the zucchini noodles as well. I roasted a portobello mushroom and put that on top (not pictured) and the end result was nothing short of fabulous and satisfying.
here for that recipe. I used coconut water instead of regular water for mine and it was delicious!
Here's to being more resourceful in the kitchen!
