Zoodles With Creamy Avocado Pesto
- 2 large zucchinis
- 2 cups arugula
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- 1/3 cup hemp seeds
For the pesto
- 2 large, ripe avocados
- 1/4 cup of EVOO
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1/4 cup basil
- 2 oz lemon juice or 1 lemon squeezed

1. Create 'zoodles' with our zucchini using a spiralizer. (if you don't have one a julienne slicer works great as well!)
2. Place zoodles on top of your arugula
3. Slice tomatoes in half, add to bowl.
4. Add avocado, EVOO, garlic, basil, lemon + salt/pepper to a blender. Blend together until thick and smooth. Add on top of zoodles. Top with hemp seeds.
