Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Pesto

Zucchini Pasta with Creamy Avocado Pesto


  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1/2 Ripe Avocado
  • 1/4-1/2 Lemon Juice of
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • Pine Nuts or Walnuts, or Pistachio Nuts, or Cashew nuts
  • 1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar &/or Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Kale Leaf or Tuscan Cabbage, stalk removed
  • Fresh herbs like Basil or Coriander or Italian Flat-leaf Parsley or Mint
  • 2 Cherry Tomatoes or Sundried tomatoes optional, to garnish


  • Use a Spiral Slicer, Julienne peeler, or a Vegetable peeler to turn zucchini into "pasta"
  • Blend all other ingredients except tomatoes in a blender (or mash up & mix with a fork)
  • Add water or more lemon juice if you would like it runnier
  • Serve & Eat


Other vegetables you can use instead of Zucchini are Carrots, Cucumber, Sweet Potato, Daikon Radish, or Butternut Pumpkin (aka Butternut Squash).
Optional - you can warm through the zucchini by sauteing or steaming if you prefer it heated
Black Ground Pepper is also nice, although I like to stay away from adding salt or pepper automatically to my dishes thesedays, but for a variation, I might add them sometimes.
Optional - serve on a bed of rocket, spinach, or mixed salad
Nuts should be added to the diet in moderation, we should only have a maximum of around 10 nuts per day, but vegetarians and raw foodists tend to get a little carried away with adding too many nuts to their daily diets & creating multitudes of nut-filled recipes. So add some nuts to this dish, but be mindful of your intake, as the body has to work very hard to digest nuts, so give your body a break and add them sparingly. They are still good for you, just don’t overdo it. If you don’t eat many nuts in your normal daily eating habits, you can add a lot more nuts to this dish (up to 1/4 cup), but if you eat nuts regularly, I would only be adding a maximum of 10 nuts.
