Get ready to spiral into a world of flavor! Before you do that, you have to spiralize some zucchini because you are transforming these plain old vegetables into noodles. If you are cleansing and have not had zucchini noodles yet, you don’t know what you are missing. Tossed in a rich sun-dried tomato walnut pesto, this zoodle dish gives you a break from salads and smoothies. It’s a flavorful dish that boasts impressive health benefits as well!

Imagine twirling your fork around emerald-green zucchini noodles coated in a rich, savory sun-dried tomato sauce. This is not your average meal, folks, it is a flavorful experience that have you questioning your desire to eat real pasta again. Zucchini contains essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which are not in boxed pasta. When you eat raw zucchini, you absorb all of the nutrients that get lost during the cooking process. And let’s not forget about all the fiber in zucchini. Instead of feeling bloated like you would after eating a big bowl of pasta, you’ll feel like you just drank a green smoothie after eating this dish!

This recipe isn’t just about the zooodles; rather, the pesto also packs a nutritional punch. The basil is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, while the garlic contains compounds that help to boost immune function and reduce blood pressure. So what are you waiting for? Dive into the world of raw vegan zucchini noodles with a sun-dried tomato pesto. Experience the power of ultimate flavor and nutrition!
