3 large zucchinis

Cherry tomatoes

2 thinly sliced jalapenos (seeds removed)

1 lemon zest

Few arugula leaves

1 avocado

1 peeled and sliced cucumber

Basil leaves

2 minced garlic cloves

A quarter teaspoon of white or black pepper

1 pinch of salt


Prepare the zucchini noodles by slicing the three large zucchini into thin slices. If you want it to look like pasta, use a pasta machine to shape it into fine spirals.

Season these zucchini slices with salt and pepper.

Cool your zucchini pasta slices in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

Remove the zucchini pasta from the refrigerator, squeeze these slices dry to remove any excess water, and pat it dry with a paper towel.

To make the puree, toss the cherry tomatoes, basil leaves, and two minced garlic cloves in a small food processor or grinder to form a smooth paste.

Toss the zucchini pasta with one peeled and sliced cucumber, one avocado, and arugula into the puree.

Heat these ingredients and the puree paste on a low flame if required.

Season your zucchini pasta with freshly cracked salt and pepper.

Garnish the zucchini pasta with two thinly sliced jalapenos and the zest of 1 lemon, serve and relish it!
