Description

"Buttered" Zoodles

Ingredients

2  
large zucchini (spiralized)
1⁄4 cup
Now Foods' butter flavored coconut oil
12  
heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 teaspoon
Garlic
1  
shallot (diced)
1 tablespoon
Now Foods' garlic flavored coconut oil (or sub olive oil)
1⁄4 cup
pine nuts (crushed*)

Notes

*to crush the pine nuts, put them in a small ziploc bag. Then use the flat side of a meat tenderizer or the back of a spoon to crush them finely.
*if you are totally new to zoodles, you can use half zucchini noodles, half regular noodles to ease yourself into it!

Instructions

  1. Use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to turn your zucchini into noodles. Set aside. 
  2. Over medium heat, saute your cherry tomatoes, garlic, and diced shallot in the garlic flavored coconut oil (or olive oil). Stir so that the tomatoes cook on all sides, approximately 4 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside. 
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt your butter flavored coconut oil. Then add in the zoodles (zucchini noodles). Cook for 5 minutes or less, stirring frequently so that they cook evenly. You want them to be slightly softened, but not mushy.
  4. Assemble your bowl: zoodles topped with a scoop of the tomatoes, garlic, and shallots. Then sprinkle on some of the crushed pine nuts. 
  5. Enjoy!
