Zucchini Pasta with Kale Camu Pesto

Serves 4zuchinni pasta


YOU’LL NEED:

  • 800g zucchini, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 large avocados

FOR THE KALE CAMU PESTO: 

  • 2 cups (80g) firmly packed mixed fresh herbs, such as basil, dill and parsley
  • 1/2 cup (75g) raw almonds
  • 3/4 cup (185ml) extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for storing
  • 3 tablespoons Bioglan Kale Powder
  • ½–1 clove garlic, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Bioglan Camu Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Bioglan Spirulina Powder
  • ground black pepper

METHOD:

  1. Create the raw zucchini pasta using either a spiraliser, vegetable peeler or mandolin. Place in a bowl, drizzle with lemon juice and set aside.
  1. To make the pesto, place all ingredients in a food processer and blend to combine into a beautifully textured oil. You can increase the quantity of oil for a thinner consistency. Spoon into a jar and top with some extra virgin olive oil to maintain colour for storing.
  1. Scoop avocado flesh into a bowl and mash until smooth. Add 1/2 cup (125ml) of the pesto and mix well. Toss through zucchini pasta until evenly coated.

Tip: Store any remaining pesto in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Serve topped with some extra fresh herbs, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or shredded poached chicken.
