Dinner Keto Paleo Recipes

Creamy Lemon Zucchini Noodles

If you haven’t zoodled yet in life, you are seriously missing out. I mean let’s be honest, who knew that slicing zucchini into noodle form and sautéing it briefly would taste good. While zoodles are definitely not the same as pasta, they are a perfectly suitable and guilt-free way to indulge in a one-pot meal of creamy deliciousness.

If you are like me and feel somewhat wrong eating an entire meal of solely vegetables and need a pork product to make you feel human, cook your favorite sausage on the side, slice, and add to the top of your zoodles. It’ll still count as healthy.

Level: Easy

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Servings: 1 (or 2 if you eat like a rabbit)

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 medium zucchini or squash
juice from 1 lemon
1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch (or tapioca starch if you want to make it Paleo)
1/4 cup water
any veggies or toppings you’d like–you can see I added some sweet potato and asparagus
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 tablespoon dill

Directions:

  1. Using a spiralizer, slice zucchini and squash into noodle form. If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can use a mandolin or super sharp knife to slice the squash thinly, and then cut into noodle-sized width from there.
  2. In a small bowl or cup, combine corn starch and water. Stir until fully incorporated.
  3. In a medium-sized frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Add whatever veggies you’d like to the pan and cook for 5-10 minutes or until nearly cooked.
  5. Add the zucchini noodles and lemon juice and sauté for another 5-10 minutes or until soft.
  6. Add corn starch mixture to pan and stir everything constantly until the mixture starts to thicken.
  7. Once the “sauce” has thickened, remove pan from the heat and serve.

  1. Thanks, sweetie. Have ordered a doohickey to do the deed. So happy you females lived it up in New York. Your mom reminded me of musicals we took them to as children. Watched Godspell Easter morning‹perfect‹glad I was raised to understand the message‹Presbyterian ministers forbearers to my parents who helped start two churches‹they and I sang in choir. Remember Dad singing solos. On mom¹s side of the family Aunt Mary graduated from Chicago Institute of Music. Glad you three have found happiness in music.

    Mark came with Shane and Devon to wipe out list of chores I had sent him. I pay family $50 an hour to help including adults. So worth it because I get to see how they are doing not to mention hugs.

    Matt¹s came by on Friday with new wife who is wonderful company. She wants our kayak. Must be sure she has a place to shelter it‹have resisted Selling it because wish to keep in family. Much fun to chase herons and egrets up the tributaries VA and Maryland afford. Markie took me over pulling me from basement , to my bedroom (treasures he remembers) to tree house which we cleaned. I¹d dash back to Jen and Matt and try to gather something for us to eat. Fortunately had done big shopping. Finally Max stopped barking at the guest dog and glommed onto the little boy. Free at last. I need to hire small boys. Matt gave us our first and last grandson. Matt, Jr used to take me around his neighborhood on bikes and he would knock on the doors of his friends and introduce me. I gave him the magic rock that enabled him (afraid of heights) to climb to the top of the play equipment in neighborhood park.

    Isn¹t it fun to move around? Work but worth it, waking up to variety of place. I hope you are learning what kind of place you one day will make your own.

    Love you —admire you so MUCH.
