I’m so, so excited to share this zucchini noodle breakfast bowl recipe with you! But first, let’s chat about October. It flew by and now we’re into November and I can’t comprehend how it’s now dark at 5 pm. I mean I get it but I’m not sure I’m ready. …not that that matters because it’s happening!
I know I’m a day late, but let’s chat about Halloween. Did you dress up/do anything fun/shove your face with candy all weekend long? My weekend was pretty chill but I ended up having a pretty fun Halloween despite not having any real plans. Miguel came back from New York Friday afternoon and then had to work all weekend long, so I had planned to just hang out with him after he got off of work Saturday evening. Fortunately, him and his coworkers decided to go out after they got off of work and he invited me along, which was super fun. I really like his coworkers and we’ve hung out on numerous occasions, so we all had a really good time despite not being dressed in costume.
QUESTION: have you ever done the Whole 30 diet? At the time this post was written, I’d never done the diet, but I since have and really enjoyed it. In fact, you can check out my favorite whole30 broccoli shrimp bowl and dairy free mushroom soup if you’re looking for more recipe inspiration. One of my good friends has done Whole30 twice and loves it. I invited her over for dinner the other week when she reminded me that she was “doing Whole 30” so I decided to Google the “cans” and “cant’s” of the diet and quickly decided on vegetable noodles, specifically zucchini noodles because I happened to have zucchini in my refrigerator. My first thought was to use my favorite kale pesto, but she is allergic to nuts so that was a no-go. Avocado sauce was the obvious answer! I topped the noodles—err, zoodles—with sweet potatoes and an egg and called it a meal! A simple, quick and Whole 30-approved meal.
For this recipe, I originally decided not to cook the zoodles, but I’ve decided that you can do either one. It’s perfectly fine if you run the zucchini through the spiralizer, cover them in sauce and just eat them that way. However, if you want them to be warmed up, simply sauté them in a skillet with oil for a few minutes–be careful not to overcook them though! Otherwise, they’ll be soggy.
Note: as far as the garlic goes, I recommend starting with 1 garlic clove then taste the sauce and see if you think it needs a second garlic clove or not.
Oh and I know I called this a zucchini noodle breakfast bowl but it can clearly be eaten for any meal of the day.Print

*Start with just one garlic clove and then go from there. I ended up using two cloves and thought it was a bit too garlicky, but my friend loved it that way. It’s your personal preference!
