Introducing my cooking show debut! Well, not exactly... but I do love this super simple, super delicious and healthy zoodle "pasta" recipe (courtesy of The Party Helpers - thepartyhelpers.com). This recipe is low carb, Paleo, vegetarian, vegan, Whole30 friendly, dairy free and soy free. WOW!
Note: add your choice of protein such as lean ground beef, tofu or chickpeas for a filling meal.
(Makes about 4 servings)
3 medium zucchini
1/2 red onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes (I used 14 oz cans)
1 tbsp. olive oil
Lean ground beef, sausage, ground turkey, tofu or chickpeas (optional for an added protein source)
Peel zucchini or use a spiralizerto make the zucchini noodles and set aside.
Chop up remaining zucchini and set aside.
Slice onion and garlic and add to 1/2 tbsp olive oil. Saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Add tomatoes and chopped zucchini to onion and garlic and simmer. Meanwhile, heat zucchini noodles in 1/2 tbsp olive oil over medium low heat for about 10-15 minutes.
Once zucchini noodles reach desired consistency, serve in a bowl and top with tomato sauce mixture.
