Zucchini noodles with avocado pesto



INGREDIENTS

6 large zucchini, spiralized
1 Tbsp olive oil
For the Sauce:
2 ripe avocados
1 cup fresh basil leaves
3 cloves garlic
¼ cup pine nuts
2 Tbsp lemon juice
½ tsp. sea salt
3 Tbsp olive oil
Cracked black pepper, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Spiralize your zucchini and set aside on paper towels so that any excess water is soaked up.
In a food processor, add avocados, basil leaves, garlic, pine nuts, lemon juice and sea salt and pulse until finely chopped. Then with the motor still running, add olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified and creamy.
Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat then add zucchini noodles, cooking for about 1 to 2 minutes until tender.
Add zucchini noodles to a large bowl and toss with avocado pesto. Season with cracked pepper and a little Parmesan, serve and enjoy!
