Zucchini Pasta

Zucchini pasta adds sneaky vegetables while being naturally gluten-free, grain-free (paleo) and low carb!  I find zucchini is a very versatile vegetable in the kitchen as it is easily accessible, affordable and contains fibre, vitamin C,  vitamin B6 and manganese. This zucchini pasta can be used raw or cooked – use it instead of pasta or noodles in a pasta or stir fry.
This easy zucchini pasta recipe is suitable for those requiring meals that are PALEO, GRAIN FREE, GLUTEN FREE, DAIRY FREE, LOW FODMAPs.

Make the magic happen…

  • Cut zucchinis into ribbons, spirals or julienne strips. The easiest way to do this is to use a Veggie Twister like the one pictured to the right.  I bought mine on eBay but most kitchen shops will sell them.  A Julienne peeler will work just as well though.

 

  • Once zucchini’s are sliced, place into saucepan and cover with water plus an extra 3-4cm water. Bring water to a rapid boil. Remove from heat and pour zucchini through a strainer immediately.  Do not overcook or they will be soggy!  Serve warm with a sauce or topping such as our Pesto Pasta.
