Summer Squash with Pesto

July 15, 2014 0 Comments

Put those summer zucchini squash to use with this simple and awesome recipe! image-2

“Pasta”:

  • 2-4 zucchini squash (spiraled or sliced thin. Use more squash for more servings!)
  • Blanch in hot water, steam or lightly sauté in coconut oil

Pesto:

  • 2 Cups fresh basil leaves (tarragon, cilantro…even adding some kale would all work!)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1/3 Cup pine nuts or walnuts
  • 2-3 cloves garlic (minced or finely chopped)
  • 1/2 TBS Lemon Juice

*I used a food processor but a blender would work too!

Make sure nuts are chopped finely. Add nuts, basil and garlic to food processor. Pulse a few times, add lemon juice and then SLOWLY add olive oil. I like to drizzle it in until the pesto reaches desired consistency. Spoon desired amount over your cooked zucchini noodles and enjoy!

*Recommended additions: Spaghetti Squash would work great as the “pasta” part. Chicken would make an excellent addition to the dish.
