For Zucchini Noodles   

– Spiralize zucchinis

– If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can simply use a vegetable peeler (as we did) to create a wide “egg noodle”

– For a softer & warm noodle, place the zucchini “noodles” in hot water for 1-3 minutes before serving with pesto

For the pesto: 

– Combine basil, garlic, nutritional yeast, lemon, beans, water, and salt in a food processor (a blender would work also)

– Pulse in the food processor to desired texture

– Mix in with zucchini noodles, this dish can be enjoyed cold, or warmed up!
