Zoodles are a wonderful pasta substitute made from your favorite garden vegetable. They are nutrient-dense with almost zero carbs—and look at how simple they are to create!

Zoodles are zucchini that have been spiralized, and can therefore be used in the same way as pasta. The possibilities are endless with zucchini noodles plus, zucchini noodles are a fun way to increase the number of vegetables we eat, especially for children. The spiral forms are quite popular with kids (and they also enjoy using the spiralizer to make zucchini noodles!).

 

Zoodles are typically prepared using a gadget called a “spiralizer,” and there are a host of kitchen gadgets out there designed to get the job done, transforming your zucchini into noodle form in no time. Spiralizers create long noodles allowing you to spin them onto your fork.

The best thing about eating zucchini noodles is that you don’t feel ultra heavy after eating them like you would when you eat pasta. You will feel full – but satisfied. These noodles are perfect for lunch or dinner on those warmer days. It is light and refreshing. If you like the sound of these noodles, you’ll love my Ramen Noodle Soup with Kelp Noodles!

Plus, zoodles also have a subtle taste that makes them easy to mix with just about anything-including Lentil Kofta! Zucchini noodles are low calorie, low carb, and high in fiber. These are incredibly delicious and work in recipes or just tossed in olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper as comfort food.

Fermented Coconut Yoghurt – VEGAN

 

Homemade vegan coconut yogurt is easier than you might think! 

This yogurt is raw, vegan, gluten-free, full of probiotics & protein and is totally delicious. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch with berries or drizzled on top of wraps, supper with curries, or dessert as a delicious frozen yoghurt! The recipe is super easy, and it requires only minimal active hands-on preparation time.

Many brands of probiotics come in capsule form. Simply open the capsules and pour the content into your coconut milk to use as a starting culture. Look for brands that are labeled “dairy-free” or “vegan,”.

A finished yogurt can also be used as a starter for your next batch. If you have never made yogurt before, you can use store-bought yogurt instead. There are numerous dairy-free yogurt brands available today, including those made from coconut milk, almonds, cashew, and so on. Save a small amount of yogurt to use as a starter for your first batch. This concept generally works well, and then you’ll just save a bit from the new batch and so on.

 

Creamy, tangy, thick and simply delicious. Happy creating!

Equipment

  • cheese cloth
  • Blender
  • glass jar
  • wooden spoon

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup coconut milk full fat

The yogurt's texture and tanginess will vary with each batch. It is based upon the coconuts and how thick the meat is, how much water there is, and how strong the probiotics are that you are using. Experiment with different brands to see what work for you.
