  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • zoodles (2-4 medium zucchinis, zoodled)
  • 1 tbsp butter, ghee, or alternative
  • 1 medium-sized avocado
  • 3 cloves garlic (or more!)
  • 1.5 tbsp olive oil

  1. Heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil in a pan and sauté minced garlic (reserve one clove for later) for 2-3 minutes. Do not let brown.
  2. Add avocado, sautéed garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, and nutritional yeast (you can also add the yeast to the pasta when done cooking instead) to a food processor and puree until smooth. Add more salt/pepper/lime juice to taste and olive oil for consistency. Options: Add other spices like cumin, paprika, or herbs like cilantro to enhance flavor!
  3. When finished with sauce, heat butter in a pan. Once hot, add the reserved garlic and let it sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add zoodles to heated butter and garlic. Toss in pan for 3-4 minutes. Don’t overcook and let it get mushy!
  5. Remove zoodles from heat and toss them with the avocado sauce. Top with parmesan or nutritional yeast, and enjoy!
