zucchini linguine//macadamia nut pesto.

this one is pretty much everything you see
(beauty incarnate)
3 minute steamed zucchini ribbons
3 minute cuisine art pesto love fest
so many ideas you can add if you desire
fits in the summer wardrobe perfectly 
it's totally plant based
so you can hear your cells singing

zucchini fettuccine//macadamia nut pesto//paleo pasta*
4 yellow/green zucchini
pesto gathering: 
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1 bunch cilantro or parsley or both
1 clove garlic
some squeezes of meyer lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
sea salt

*rock it*
(look at pic)
put everything in the cuisinart
pulse it to taste
you may need to add lemon or salt
it's also good sitting with all the ingredients 
for a bit too.. it gets better as it sits.
create ribbons with a basic peeler
steam the ribbons for 3 minutes
they tend to collect moisture 
so i like to place them in a colander
with a plate/towel underneath the colander
to drain the liquid a bit
but it's not necessary!
mix all together in a big bowl
and serve while warm or
you can wait if you need to

amazing as a full meal
or as a side with 
shrimp or wild salmon
this is also a great dish
to bring to a potluck
break it down

how did it turn out? 

*inspired by practical paleo//diane sanfilippo*

sweet potato & zucchini quichkes (paleo pancakes).


so this one is not the blend it all together & make a meal
as it does take a little more time shredding with the cuisinart
or by hand, mixing everything together & then flipping them
on the was SO worth it because my kids devoured them!!

this recipe is inspired by the book practical paleo
these were used as a hamburger buns but it also
brought me back to making latkes where you can add 
all the veggies you want! it's slightly more eggy 
which makes it almost like a quichke cake ;)

sweet potato zucchini quichkes

3 eggs
2 tsp coconut flour
(i used more here)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups shredded
sweet potato & zucchini*
coconut oil for frying
*work it*
shred veggies (keep peels on)
grab a big mixing bowl
beat eggs and add all spices and flours in 
then add your shredded veggies
mix everything together
(i was not extreme with the measurements!)
just added things as with my fingers
easy to mix this with a fork or your hand
*fire it up*
grab a iron clad or good thick pan
put it on medium high
get a plate with napkins on it
or a paper bag to put on side
for when the quichkes are ready
add some coconut oil 
grab a small handful of batter
place on the hot pan
flatten with spatula and wait till 
the bottom is browning then flip 
over and do the same on that side
you will find your way in this pancake
process & then place them on the plate

*you can also use regular potatoes & 
other seasonal veggies for this recipe!
you can also use any kind of flour you have on hand*

i hope you love these
