If your summer harvest is exploding with zucchinis, these Lemon Garlic Zoodles are going to be your favorite go-to recipe. The lemon and garlic really make the flavor pop. This super healthy zucchini noodle recipe is Whole30, Paleo, and Vegan. PS – it only takes 10 minutes to make!
Lemon Garlic Zoodles
You can get zucchinis in the grocery store any time of year. But nothing compares to that summer harvest – whether it’s from the farmer’s market or better yet – your own garden.
One of the reasons I love this recipe is because three of the ingredients come from our garden – the zucchinis, garlic, and parsley. I love zoodles as a super healthy alternative to traditional noodles. Hubby can eat his weight in zoodles. And Stepson loves them too.
Recipe Notes and Hacks
You can scale this recipe up or down. I like to keep it 1 lemon to 1 zucchini and 2 cloves of garlic to 1 zucchini.
If it’s “one of those nights” and you want to cut down on prep time even more and use pre-spiralized zoodles from the store… there is no judgment here. Pinky swear promise. I won’t tell. Your secret is safe with me.
This recipe is Whole30, Paleo, and Vegan as-is.
You can add some grilled shrimp or chicken and still keep it Whole30 and Paleo.
If you don’t follow any of these nutrition protocols and you enjoy cheese, you can sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top.
