Flexible, Fun and Family-Friendly!

This recipe by Sarah M, our very own Diva, was a huge hit at our Diva-licious Recipe Night!  I love this recipe for two reasons; if you choose not to eat meat this is a whole meal and if you want more protein, add in 4-6 oz of lean chicken and reduce the sauce.  Remember, it’s all a numbers game.   This is also a popular recipe with busy moms who want the kids to eat more greens, but not even know they’re doing it!  Zoodles or zucchini noodles couldn’t be easier to make!


Diva-licious Recipe


•    2 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
•    ¼ cup olive oil
•    Cracked black pepper, to taste

  • 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.
  • To increase protein, mix in 4-6 ounces of cooked, lean chicken per serving.
