Fresh zucchini noodles (zoodles) tossed with lightly sautéed corn, cherry tomatoes and in an easy avocdao-cilantro-lime-chilli dressing. A fun way to incorporate more veggies and also an healthier gluten-free alternative to our traditional noodles/spaghetti pasta.
Being a vegetarian, I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vegetables into our diet. Having read so many articles about a vegetable spiralizer, I ordered one couple of weeks and played with a vegetable noodle recipe past weekend. Oh boy, what fun it was. I loved the texture of the zucchini noodles and how brilliantly they took the flavors from the avocado-cilantro-lime dressing. Along with some sautéed corn and cherry tomatoes, today's recipe Zucchini Noodles With Creamy Avocado Lime Dressing was a total winner. I know for sure, I am going to make this again this week and many weeks to come. Zoodles, as they are endearingly called can be easily used in all the recipes that call for pasta noodles/spaghetti. Zoodle Mac n Cheese anyone? Pad Thai? with Tomato Sauce? Noodle Salad? Soup may be?....countless possibilities!
