Meatless Monday: Zucchini Noodles
Happy Monday friends How has everyone’s day been?
Mine? A little stressful.
But, I have the best Dad in the world (IMO) and he always seems to know how to cheer his stressed-out “big city university girl” up (Yes, that is a new nickname my Daddy has for me!)
These are just a few of the many pictures I received from my Daddy throughout the day… all of which put a smile on my face
He wants me to try and find these at Remark. Do you think I will have any luck?
Apparently this tap has the flu?
Personally, I think these would be delicious
And I found this one all on my own… I thought it was fitting for exam period
But, enough with all of these fun and games! I have a recipe to share!
As tradition has it, I have a meatless recipe to share with all of you on this wonderful day I like to call Meatless Monday! I am really excited to share this recipe, but when am I not excited to share a recipe?
This recipe is so good and super easy Sounds like the perfect meal to have during these long days of studying doesn’t it!? However, even if you aren’t a slaving student – I am sure you will appreciate this recipe Who doesn’t like an “easy to whip up” recipe?
Zucchini Noodles with Chickpeas and Sautéed Tomatoes
1 medium zucchini
1 cup chickpeas, cooked
1 medium tomato, diced
1 TBSP olive oil
1 – 2 garlic cloves
fresh dill, chopped
Begin by thinly slicing your zucchini into “noodles”. I have used a very sharp knife for doing making the noodles, but now that I own a mandolin I use that instead
Next, heat the oil in a pan. Sauté garlic, tomatoes, and zucchini until tender and garlic becomes fragrant.
Remove from heat and place in bowl or on plate. Toss with warmed chickpeas and a pinch of fresh dill (I microwaved my chickpeas right before my zucchini was ready to be removed from the pan). Serve.
This meal is incredibly versatile You can add different veggies, sauces, and even meat!
Here is a version with shredded chicken
I hope you enjoyed this recipe! Let me know if you try it out!
