Zucchini Pasta with Cashew Basil Pesto
Health Highlights


2 large Zucchini
2 cup Basil, fresh
1/4 cup Cashew nuts, raw
2 clove(s) Garlic
1/4 cup Nutritional yeast (or parmesan )
2 tbsp Nutritional yeast (or parmesan )
1/4 cup Extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp Lemon juice
1/3 tsp Sea salt, fine
1/2 tsp Black pepper
1 dash Nutmeg, ground (pinch)
1/2 cup Cherry Tomatoes (halved)


  1. Chop about 1/2″ off both ends of the zucchini and spiralize. I recommend tearing the noodles into smaller pieces as you go, otherwise, you’ll end up with a “Lady and the Tramp” situation on your hands when you try to eat your pasta!
  2. Once you’ve finished spiralizing, add zoodles and cherry tomatoes to a large bowl and mix in the pesto until well-coated. Enjoy!
