Herby Spring Pea Zoodles

Jun 3, 2019 | Salads, Vegetables

Herby spiralized zucchini noodles tossed with lemon juice and fresh herbs. An easy paleo vegetable side dish that is made in less than 10 minutes!

OK, let’s cut to the chase. I am obsessed with zucchini. I eat about 3 to 4 pounds of it every week, and I usually am out of it when I need to go grocery shopping again. The weird part is that I cook it the same way every night…. sliced, quartered, and sautéed. Then I put avocado on it and call it a day. OMG MORIAH HOW CAN YOU WRITE A COOKING BLOG. I know right? I’m still baffled.
I figured “sautéed zucchini” wasn’t a legit enough recipe for me to post, and it’s not the most fun thing to photograph, so I pushed myself to be a little creative and pull out the spiralizer for this recipe. And you know what? It isn’t half bad. Actually, I ate three servings of it in a day. I might just have to change up my awkward zucchini habit more often.
