Super healthy zucchini noodles with a vegan cashew based creamy tomato sauce. Healthy comfort food!
Heat a large 14" sauté pan over medium heat. Add pine nuts and sauté them until they start to turn golden ~ approx. 2 min. Watch them carefully as they start to turn quite quickly.
Remove from heat into a bowl and set aside.
Add avocado or olive oil to the pan.
Add zucchini noodles. Toss to coat in oil. Mix them well and add a couple pinches of salt and pepper. Sauté for 1 min and then add the creamy tomato sauce. Mix well for another minute or 2 - just until heated through.
Top with pine nuts and serve with Aleppo pepper (or any spicy pepper you'd like!) and fresh garden basil.
This recipe is easily scalable. The sauce makes 1 cup, 4 servings. So if you want to store the sauce and make 1 or 2 servings, the rule of thumb is one zucchini, 1 Tb pine nuts and 1/4 cup sauce per serving.
