Chickpea Zucchini Noodles

Sure, you could buy gluten free pasta, but honestly that stuff is mostly just full of crap too. Most gluten free pastas have added folic acid ( not good), low quality added vitamins, and strange binders. It’s best to just stay on the safe side and make some zucchini noodles. Plus..ladies.. zucchini is a vegetable, hello vitamins and minerals!

Bonus: This is vegan recipe for all you vegans out there!

Ingredients

1 cup spiralized zucchini ( here’s the spiralizer I use, I don’t even use the green handle I just hold onto the stem of the zucchini. I know this one is cheap but I PROMISE it works the best!)

1/2 cup washed/soaked/cooked drain chickpeas*

1 cup Thrive Market Basil Tomato Sauce

3 sprigs fresh thyme

1 clove minced garlic

3 olive chopped to top it off

Directions

  1. Heat zucchini and pasta sauce in sauce pan over low heat
  2. Add garlic, 2 thyme sprigs ( after you’ve pulled off the leaves hah), and chickpeas to pot
  3. Heat for about 5 minutes or until everything is warm and tasty, you don’t want to over cook ( too hot or too long) because this can destroy nutrients
  4. When your food is at your preferred temperature, remove from the stove and add a couple chopped olives and sprinkle on the last thyme sprig to make your meal #instaworthy!

Enjoy! I’m sure you will.. It’s delicious! And as always Soy Free, Cimg_2052orn Free, Diary Free, Casein Free, Gluten Free, and Candida Diet Approved! Hint ( Omit the garlic and use chopped tomatoes instead of the sauce and it’s Low FODMAP)

How’d you like it?! For those of you doing low carb, was this meal low enough carb for your needs?

As Always,

Bite Me, With Love
