Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Dressing

Zucchini Pasta with Avocado Dressing


I ended up buying a vegetable spiralizer and I’m so happy I did. My children had fun making the zucchini noodles so I don’t even know how to use the machine. I enjoyed this dish so much I will be making it sometime in the coming week. I served the spiralized zucchini with avocado sauce – because I really love it. You can serve it with a tomato sauce or a vegan cheese sauce. Zucchini pasta and avocado dressing is excellent for someone on Phase 1 of the candida diet.


  • 2 medium zucchini spiralized
  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil or almond milk
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Garnish chopped basil leaves and cherry tomatoes


Using a spiralizer or julienne peeler, turn zucchini into noodles. Set aside in a bowl. Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Serve avocado dressing with zucchini noodles, garnish with basil leaves and cherry tomatoes.

    I have been wanting to try these zoodles for so long. I need to find one of those cutters! I think the avocado sauce sounds delish!
