If you have waaaaaaay too much zucchini or squash then pay attention!
Last week I cleaned, cut, and steamed a lot of too much broccoli, yellow summer squash and green zucchini. I ate it for several meals but my boys just were not interested. I had an idea, maybe I should make it into a sauce they could eat on pasta.
I started cooking some gluten-free spiral rice noodles (they were organic too, aren’t I fancy); then threw some steamed veggies into my Magic Bullet (a food processor or blender could easily be used) along with some nutritional yeast, garlic, onion powder, and salt then added some plant-milk to get it just right.
The end result was a delicious and somewhat spicy sauce that was the perfect consistency for pasta eating or pita dipping. I could also dip veggies in this sauce, as a matter of fact I think it would be a decent stand-in for a creamy spinach and artichoke dip. Oh, be next time I’ll add spinach and artichoke too.
When my 3-year-old asked me what I was making I raised my hands in the air like a referee signalling a touch down and said, “Special Green Sauce.” There was quite a bit of excitement in the air as I served up this green sauce on the spiral noodles. I cut one noodle in half and told my 3-year-old it was hot. He blew on it once then shoved it in his mouth and exclaimed, “Oh Thank You Mommy!!!” My 1-year-old like it too. He was two-fisting them into his mouth.
