Why You’ll Love This Zucchini Noodles

  • Firstly, it is incredibly easy to make in about 20 minutes.
  • Furthermore, I made the dish with just a few easy-to-find ingredients. Hence, budget friendly.
  • Can be enjoyed as an appetizer, main meal or dinner.
  • In addition, can be made using your veggies.
  • Perfect alternative for wheat noodles, yet healthier and more nutritious.

How to slice or dice an avocado?

  • Cut the avocado in half.
  • Remove the pit – to do that, aim your knife at the pit and whack into it, twist the knife to pull out the pit.
  • Use your knife’s tip to score avocado flesh, making squares, then scoop it out with a spoon.
  • If you are looking to slice the avocado, use a spoon to loosen skin all the way around, and scoop out the flesh whole. Place flat side down on cutting board and slice using the tip of your knife.

How to make lemon zest

Follow the easy steps below:

  • Rinse the lemon.
  • Set your tool over a cutting board. A microplane produces a very fine zest, perfect for baking and cooking. If you don’t have a microplane, use the smallest holes on an ordinary grater.
  • Grate the yellow skin of the lemon only. Grate just enough to get through the yellow skin, this way you can avoid the bitter white pith underneath.
  • Rotate the lemon and repeat. Once the white pith is exposed, rotate the lemon and zest the next strip of peel. Repeat until most of the peel is removed, or until you have enough zest for your recipe.

Can you freeze the Zucchini Noodles

Yes, the noodles freeze well. First, layer them into an aluminum foil pan. Then, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap, and then wrap it in aluminum foil and freeze for up to 3 month. To reheat add additional sauce on top and place in the oven at 350F for about 20-30 minutes or until hot.

Really liked this meal. Would have been a little more helpful if we knew what seasonings were in the packers, I just used salt and pepper. Turned out really really good. Also so super simple. The SO didn't like raw noodles so I'd probably heat his up. I thought it was awesome
