Recipe: Zoodles w/ sweet potato peanut sauce & tofu

Zoodles – a fresh, delicious, and very light alternative to regular pasta. If you want to bring more raw vegetables in a fun and tasty way into your life, zucchini noodles are the ultimate way to go for.

“Luminous health is your birthright.
Expressing your heart’s truth is your greatest gift.”

Zoodles add a refreshing flavor and nice texture to this dish. I prefer eating them raw, but you can also cook them for a couple of minutes in slightly salted water.

If you don’t have a spiralizer at home – no problem! Just use a simple vegetable peeler and give it a go. The combination of this fresh, vegetable based pasta with a creamy, slightly sweet tasting sauce, and the extra protein kick with tofu, sprouts, and seeds makes this dish extraordinary.

See for yourself and let’s get started!
