Zoodles with Pumpkin Seed Pesto

2 servings. 500 calories. 30g protein

For the zoodles

  • 3 zucchini, spiralized or julienned
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Olive oil for sautéing


    For the pesto

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 cups fresh basil leaves (or use a combination of basil, spinach, and/or arugula)
  • ½ cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • Salt to taste

    For the protein

  • Your choice of grilled chicken or fish, or white beans (I do 4 oz grilled shrimp)


  1. Blend all the pesto ingredients in a food processor. In a large sauté pan, heat some olive oil and lightly sauté the zucchini noodles.
  2. Toss together the noodles and pesto. Add the protein of your choice on top, then serve. I love using shrimp!
