Zoodle Bowls are Easy for just One Person
A spiralizer is such a simple tool that makes a big difference if you’re trying to eat healthier! In no time, you can get a bowl full of perfectly spiralized zoodles. I use these to pack a healthy breakfast casserole, to “beef up” the nutrients in make-ahead egg cups, or to just eat as a quick, healthful lunch bowl.
This recipe packs a healthy punch with a twist of the wrist. Using just two small zucchini and your favorite zoodle maker (Here’s My Favorite), twist away until you have a bowl full of ‘zoodles’. Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil or coconut oil over medium high heat. When oil is hot, toss in your zoodles along with your favorite pesto. Toss it to coat.
