Zoodles With Cilantro Lime Avocado Sauce

Pasta is undeniably delicious, but you can just keep eating and eating until you reach a full state of bloating. Most pasta that you buy in the store is made with enriched wheat or flour, in addition to other preservatives, or the wheat is not high quality. If you eat the same pasta dish in Italy, though, you will not feel bloated after finishing your dish. Higher quality ingredients are more easily digestible. Plus, the sauce in Italy is most likely fresher.

This recipe doesn’t have flour and it will not remind you of Italy. It does, however, offer impressive depth of flavor for being a raw vegan entree. Zucchini noodles do not taste like cooked pasta noodles, but they are much healthier for you. Additionally, eating a bowl of zucchini noodles when the weather is hot is much more refreshing, and you don’t feel as weighed down. A great trick to make your zucchini noodles less watery is to put them in a strainer, sprinkle a bit of sea salt on them, and then let them sit for 10 minutes. Pat them dry and then set aside while you make the sauce.

Speaking of the sauce, this is one that you’ll want to save for the books. It is wonderfully creamy and packed with flavor. Not only does this avocado lime creation work as a sauce for the zoodles, but it also works as a dressing or vegetable dip. The possibilities with this sauce are endless! Maybe just don’t put in on desserts, though. Happy eating!
