The name is a bit of a mouthful, but then so is this dish!

These Creamy Edamame & Jalapeno Zucchini Noodles will destroy any preconceived notions you may have of raw vegan food being boring or uninspired – it is loaded with flavour and texture, and so creamy they’re almost decadent.

Super healthy too! The nutrient density of a single serving is off the charts (see for yourself).

If you’re not a big fan of zoodles (zucchini noodles), feel free to cook up a batch of regular spaghetti instead – but do it ahead of time to allow the pasta to cool down.

Because it uses a creamy avocado sauce and zucchini noodles this dish unfortunately does not keep for very long – best finished in one sitting, or refrigerate overnight at a stretch.

Creamy Edamame & Jalapeno Zucchini Noodles
