Zucchini Noodles with Mineral-Rich Pesto

June 10, 2016

Author: Lily Mazzarella
It's mid-cleanse, and we thought perhaps you’d like some pasta.

Using this season's bounty—your garden's unrelenting zucchini, as well as basil, and parsley—we've constructed the perfect summer meal.  Trust me:  you won't miss the starchy noodles.

*This recipe is best made with either a Spiralizer or Zoodler ("health-food" contraptions I swear were advertised between episodes of Three's Company and The Rockford Files), but can also be made with a vegetable peeler or special food processor attachment.

For the Mineral-Rich Pesto:

2 cups mixed herbs, packed:  basil, parsley, cilantro….

½ cup extra virgin olive oil (see our Skinny on Olive Oil post here)

½ cup Go Raw Sprouted Pumpkin Seeds

¼ lemon or lime

Optional: 

1-2 peeled garlic cloves, chopped

Pink Himalayan salt (don't add until you’ve fully mixed and tasted this! The pumpkin seeds are already salted)

Freshly ground organic black pepper

For the "Noodles":

2 large zucchinis (spaghetti squash works well too)

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Pink Himalayan salt

Freshly ground organic black pepper

1 clove garlic, minced (optional)

½ tsp red pepper flakes (optional—if you know nightshades work for your body!)

Place herbs, pumpkin seeds, garlic, and a few squeezes of lemon juice into a food processor or blender and chop/blend until ingredients are smooth and integrated.

Using your tool of choice, ribbon the zucchini and set aside. In a large sauté pan, heat extra virgin olive oil over moderate heat, and add the garlic (if desired), red pepper flakes (if you know nightshades are okay for you), along with ¼ tsp salt and some freshly ground pepper.  When the oil is hot, toss in the zucchini and sauté for 3-5 minutes depending on volume and thickness of your noodles. Sometimes the zucchini releases water—you can pour this off in the sink.

Transfer to a shallow serving bowl and toss with pesto.

Garnish with ground pumpkin and hemp seeds. For a more substantial meal, serve with homemade turkey "sausage:" use ground turkey thigh meat and fennel to re-create the flavor of Italian sausage.

Life saver!

Recommended to me by 2 Naturopaths. this product has helped me out of SIBO issues and also maintained my body's natural gastric process.
Whenever I have a flare up of digestive problems, this product, in combination with garlic and probiotics has helped me restore things without the torment of antibiotics, which destroy your gut lining. I highly recommend staying on an assigned regiment of Candibactin BR for a cure.

Sleep Now

Sleep Now is my new favorite cocktail.

Sleep now is a beautiful tincture that helps de-stress my mind and makes my body feel instantly calm. Sometimes other sleep cocktails can knock you out too quickly or give you a groggy feeling in the morning but not Sleep Now. I love the taste of it, maybe because I have always felt connected to lemon balm and motherwort.
Sleep Now is a soft, flowing medicine that works perfectly. My neighbor introduced me to Farmacopia and I just ended up buying a small lazy susan to display all my lovely tinctures. I use different ones throughout the day and I can honestly say they are making a huge difference in my life. My moods are much more stable now. Thank you so much, Farmacopia!!

Aw!!! This review is so sweet and we love your lazy-susan Farmacopia display!

Son loves them

Love these vitamins. My son looks forward to them everyday and usually reminds me if I forget. They seem to work well. He is a very healthy 4 year old.
