Zucchini Pomodoro (Recipe)


One of our absolute favorites. It’s quick to make and tastes just as good as the regular pasta version, without the heavy feeling post-meal!

Why is it so good for you?

Zucchini provides you with lutein and zeaxanthin, two carotenoids that promote healthy eyesight! They’re also a source of magnesium, folate and fiber.


(use organic ingredients where possible)

  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 cup tomatoes
  • 6 soaked sun dried tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 date
  • 2 tbsp of parsley or basil
  • 1 tsp sea salt


What to do

  1. Spiralize the zucchini into noodles or with a peeler, into ribbons and place in a large serving bowl.
  2. For the sauce, place remaining ingredients in food processor/ blender until smooth.
  3. To serve, place the zucchini noodles/ ribbons into bowls and pour the raw sauce over the top, just like you would for a bowl of pasta.
