Zucchini Noodles Recipe

Truth be told, I have totally missed the vegetable noodle craze up until this point. I have a small kitchen, and try to avoid as much as possible tools that are large, or have only one function. This recipe started out as a “shaved zucchini” recipe, which can be made with a regular peeler. Then one day a julienne peeler arrived in the mail. My aunt had been testing some blog recipes for me, using this special peeler herself, and had decided it was something I needed to include in my kitchen tool collection. It’s a perfect tool–small and sharp, and now with this recipe, I’ve joined the vegetable noodling club!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound zucchini
  • 1 clove garlic
  • ½ bunch Italian Parsley (use your favorite herbs here)
  • 1/2 bunch mint
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 15 oz can chickpeas, drained (garbanzo beans)
  • 4 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Make zucchini into noodles* and set aside. Mince garlic. Chop fresh herbs. Juice lemon.
  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl and toss. This recipe is delicious if allowed to sit for an hour or two, refrigerated, to allow the flavors to combine.

Notes

*This can be done in many ways--with an Inspiralizer or Kitchen Aid attachment. It can also be julienned with a julienne peeler, which will create small strips. If none of these options are available, super thinly slice zucchini.
