This is a guest recipe from Pete Evan’s new book Bubba Yum Yum.
With the view that all children should experience the best possible start to life, chef Pete Evans joined forces with nutritionist Helen Padarin and blogger Charlotte Carr to produce Bubba Yum Yum The Paleo Way for New Mums, Babies and Toddlers.
Kids love zoodles and what a great way to get them to eating greens. They are bouncy, playful and great for developing their hand-eye coordination. You can serve these raw or lightly cooked.
* There are several kinds of spiralisers available both in kitchenware shops and online. They transform zucchini into beautiful spaghetti.
* If you grow your own herbs, allow your children to pick a few. Show them how to wash the herbs and prepare them for the blender.
* If your little ones find garlic to be a bit too intense, simply cook it off first in some coconut oil, or even with some bacon.
- Method :
- To make dinosaur sauce, place all the ingredients except the oil in a blender and process until combined. Gradually add the oil until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. (We love ours thick and creamy but add more oil if you prefer it thinner).
- To make the zoodles, heat the oil in a frying pan over the medium-high heat. Add the zucchini and saute for 1-2 minutes, or until it is just soft (don’t overcook). Add the dinosaur sauce and toss well. Continue to cook for another 30 seconds, or until heated through. Spoon into bowls and serve.
