Ingredients

    • 2 small zucchinis, ends trimmed
    • 2 small avocados, peeled
    • 2 cups packed fresh basil leaves
    • 1 ¼ cloves garlic
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
    • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • Cherry or grape tomatoes, optional
    • Moringa Powder (2-3 tsps.)
                                                            Directions
                                                              1. In a food processor, add avocados, basil leaves, minced garlic, 1 teaspoon of moringa powder, minced garlic, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, and some salt to taste; process until mixed.
                                                              2. After mixed, scrape down with a spatula to ease the process and ¼ cup of extra virgin olive oil (in a slow stream), chopped parsley and pulse until blended.
                                                              3. Use a julienne peeler or mandoline to slice the zucchini into noodles. Set aside.
                                                              4. Pour some olive oil in a pan on low heat and combine the zucchini noodles (1-2 minutes, until soft) and pesto-moringa mixture. Toss until zucchini noodles are well coated. Top with tomatoes, if using. Serve at room temperature or chilled, adding parmesan cheese if desired.
