As I was looking for a recipe using zucchinis on the internet, I realized that most of the recipes I liked have ingredients that I do not have on hand. Then I decided to create my own recipe with what I have (kale, onions, yellow peppers...) ,which ended up as a delicious, meal-worthy and healthy dish.
zucchinis, washed and peeled like fettuccini noodles
medium onion, chopped
cloves garlic, minced
small yellow pepper, seeded and chopped
(4-5 leaves) kale, washed
scallions, chopped (both white and green parts)
hemps seeds (optional)
red wine vinegar
In This Recipe
Place the zucchini ribbons into a colander, add salt and let it drain for 15 minutes.
In a large pot put some water and, using a steam basket, steam the kale for 5 minutes. Take it out and let it cool. Once cooled, chop it into small pieces.
Heat olive oil in a large pan. Add onions and cook until they are fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes. Add the yellow pepper, garlic and continue to cook for 2 minutes.
Add the zucchinis, mix and cook for 6-7 minutes. As they cook, they will soften and will start looking like noodles. Place them in a mixing bowl.
Add the chopped kale.
To make the dressing: Mix vegenaise and red wine vinegar in a bowl. Season it black pepper.
Drizzle the zucchini and kale mixture with the dressing. Add a handful of (or more) walnuts in and mix.
When ready to serve sprinkle it with a tablespoon of hemp seeds.
