There’s nothing like homemade pesto and when added to fresh, spiralized zucchini noodles you’ve got a winner!
This Zucchini Noodles with Walnut Basil Pesto recipe from VeguKate is raw, vegan (as long as you leave out the optional parmesan sprinkled on top), gluten free, and low carb, and delicious so it’s a great dish to bring to picnics or pot lucks where people may have a lot of different dietary needs. It’s super easy, too.
VeguKate is run by Kate, a nutritionist who doesn’t follow any one set of dietary rules but rather focuses on whole foods including lots of vegetables and healthy grains.
You can make large batches of pesto in advance and freeze it in ice cube trays or use these Petite Creations Pesto Cubes. You get eight cubes so that you can freeze all kinds of healthy goodies to be used when you need them.
