Vegan zoodles with spaghetti

The perfect combination of vegan zucchini noodles and durum wheat pasta.

Zoodles with spaghetti is as simple as it is ingenious. I love pasta more than anything, but sometimes I wish it was a little healthier and lower in calories. So why not replace some of it with zucchini noodles? I found the idea simply ingenious and have also immediately made me to the implementation. At the moment the weather doesn’t really know where it wants to go and fluctuates between cold, rainy and bathing temperatures. Then, when I catch a sunny moment during my lunch break, I sit down in the sun with a delicious serving of this fine pasta. Replenish vitamin D stores.

Zoodles with spaghetti – an incredibly delicious combination

Today’s recipe is made in three easy steps. First, cook the pasta of your choice. You can either use regular durum wheat spaghetti or a gluten-free variety. I chose emmer spaghetti for this recipe, a primal wheat variety.

Then it’s on to the zoodles. I have a simple sprial slicer at home that works very well in theory, but after two or three zucchinis or cucumbers I feel like my arm is going to fall off. Well, you can also see it as training for the arm muscles. Anyway, I use two medium zucchini and I twist them through the spiral slicer.

The only thing missing is a delicious sauce. Here again my beloved cashews come into play. They come together with vegetable milk, nutritional yeast flakes, lemon juice, garlic, Dijon mustard, pepper and salt to taste. All of this goes together in the blender and is blended on high speed to make a creamy sauce. Finally, put everything together in a large bowl. Spaghetti, zoodles and the creamy sauce.

TIP: I usually buy cashews in a bulk pack from Rapunzel. The company supports a cooperative with women who are paid fairly for their work and have above-average working conditions. The nuts are organic & fair and also a tad more expensive. Personally, though, I think the extra price for such a good product is worth it if you can or want to spend it.

I think the idea of mixing zoodles with spaghetti is just brilliant, especially if you want to cut calories, or just make the dish a tad lighter. To add a little color, I sautéed a handful of cherry tomatoes in a little oil and added a few sprigs of lemon thyme to the pan. This gives a wonderful flavor and adds a nice splash of color to the dish. Otherwise, fresh basil and Parmesan cheese goes wonderfully with it.
