Cook, Eat | Zoodle Bowl with Creamy Kale

Top Mummy Blog new Zealand Top Kale recipe

A couple of weeks ago I attended the launch of the totally SUPER new GO Superfood range from Go Healthy.  We were challenged to try some new recipes to get us thinking a little out of the box about how we can use superfoods in ways other than our morning smoothies.

This recipe really stood out for me, it was fun and quick to make, can be served warm or cold and tasted amazing!

Zoodle Bowl with Creamy Kale Recipe

INGREDIENTS

For the pesto:

1/2 large avocado
1/2 cup cashew nuts (preferably soaked) 1 clove of garlic chopped
Juice of half a lemon
1/3 cup Olive oil
1-2 teaspoons of GO Superfoods Kale Powder
Dash of sea salt

For the Zoodle bowl:

4-6 zucchini
1 cup baby spinach or mixed greens

10 cherry tomatoes chopped in halves or quarters
4 teaspoons GO Superfoods Chia Seeds

Optional toppings:

Toasted nuts & seeds
Parmesan
Protein pieces (chicken, fish, red meat)

METHOD

Wash the zucchini and use either a hand held spiraliser or julienne peeler to create 4 serves of zucchini noodles. Each bowl will require 1-2 Zucchini.

Set aside while you make the sauce.

Blend the Go Superfood kale powder, cashews, garlic, and avocado until smooth. Stir in the olive oil gradually to reach your preferred consistency. Squeeze in lemon juice and season with sea salt.

Mix the creamy pesto throughout the zoodles. Add the spinach / salad greens and cherry tomatoes. Sprinkle each bowl with 1 teaspoon of chia seeds.

To serve warm – place the Zucchini noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes before mixing with pesto sauce.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
