Creamy Vegan Zoodles with Asapragus

When Zoodles first become the new “in food” to eat, I wasn’t a fan. They didn’t fill me up and in my opinion, they weren’t at all like pasta.

They didn’t taste like pasta and I didn’t feel like I had eaten pasta. I had tried making my favorite marinara sauces and adding that to Zoodles but it just didn’t work.

Needless to say, I didn’t like Zoodles.

Now that I’ve been plant based for a couple of years, and am eating more plant based meals than vegan meals, my taste buds have definitely changed. The foods that I crave have changed. And, I have finally found a way to prepare Zoodles in a way that I love.

This recipe is one that I have been making a couple times a week for the past 2 months.

I just can’t get enough of it and it’s so basic.

The creamy sauce for the Zoodles is a Miso Tahini Sauce. It’s tangy, packed with flavor and is totally satisfying.

This is a fast meal to make and requires minimal ingredients.

You can make it with just the sauce and Zoodles. I like to saute my Zoodles with Asparagus and then add in some cherry tomatoes and cucumbers. This also goes great with a sweet potato on the side to make it a heartier meal.

This recipe is easily one of my new favorites and has been my go-to this summer. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

To Your Health and Happiness,
