Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Sauce


  • 3-4 large or 5-6 small zucchini, or one 10oz package of pre-made zucchini noodles
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed cilantro, basil or parsley
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Water, as needed


Slice the ends of your zucchini off. Use a spiralizer to make your zucchini noodles. (If using pre-made noodles, skip to the next step).

Heat a large pan to high heat. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil to pan then add crushed garlic. Cook garlic for just a few seconds or until it turns golden. Add the zuchhini noodles, toss to combine with the garlic and cook for just a few seconds then remove pan from heat and set aside to cool.

While the zucchini pasta is cooling, Add avocado, herbs (cilantro, parsley, or basil), lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Blend until mixture is creamy, (optional, add 2-3 tablespoons water or until mixture reaches a pourable consistency).

Pour sauce on zucchini noodles. Toss and serve. Garnish with parmesan or additional chopped cilantro. Enjoy warm or at room temp!
