Spiralized – Creamy Zucchini Noodles

Pic4

I’m baaaack….and super excited to be! It’s been a busy few weeks but I am so ecstatic to share that I tied the knot…I do…I did…I am married! Love love!

I got back last week…very early last Wednesday and was thrown right into the work week! As you can imagine it took a few days to get settled in. Luckily I had a few frozen items in the freezer that got us through the rest of the week and by Friday I was one happy lady packing my grocery cart with lots of healthy produce and whole foods! I don’t know about you but I love to grocery shop, especially at Whole Foods, but I would joyfully accept someone else putting the groceries away (in an organized fashion of course! :)) and cleaning the produce!

Zucchini sounded fresh & delicious so I picked up several and on Sunday afternoon I decided it was time to make some noodles with them. This dish turned out so delicious and it really couldn’t be more simple. Furthermore, it’s perrrfect for anyone looking for ways to increase their vegetable intake. If there is one thing that all health experts agree on, it’s that everyone should increase the amount of veggies they eat!

Creamy “Zucchini” Noodles with Kale

4 c. kale (chopped)
1 t. ghee
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 t. herbamare (1/4 t. to sautee kale, 1/4 t. to mix in with noodles)
4 c. spiralized zucchini (about 3 medium zucchini (add 2 c. initially to warm, add 2 more c. at end)
Avocado “Sauce”

1/2 avocado
sprinkle of herbamare
Topping
smoked goat cheese, grated (to sprinkle) (Bella Capra is my current fav)

Spiralize zucchini with spiralizer and set aside. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use alternatively use a julienne peeler or handheld grater.  (I like to chop some of the noodles so they aren’t quite as long after I’ve spiralized them). Add ghee to medium skillet along with minced garlic, turn on low heat. Add chopped kale (you can just tear with hands) and increase to low-medium heat, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn.  Once the kale has wilted a bit, add half of the zucchini noodles. Stir until warm, however, you don’t want them to have too much heat. They get a little soggy edge with too much heat. :(Decrease temperature to low, then stir in the remaining noodles, stirring until warm. Remove from heat. To create sauce, mash half of an avocado and sprinkle with herbamare, stir. Add noodles to bowl, top with ‘sauce’ and a sprinkle of grated smoked goat cheese. Enjoy!
