Recipe Directions

Place your zucchini ribbons, jullienned red pepper and onion into a large bowl and set aside.

For the pesto combine all the ingredients into a blender, setting aside a little less than half the cilantro. Blend well. Coursly mince the reserved cilantro and mix into the pesto. Pour onto the ‘pasta’ and toss to coat. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro!

note: if you want a richer sauce add more olive oil. You can also adjust the nama shoyu according to your taste!

zucchini vermicelli with cilantro pesto

5 out of 5

My friend made this for me Friday night and it was super good! She used Chili paste instead of the actual chili b/c she couldn't find a thai chili.... it was still super, super good! I will be making it again today! Thanks!!

I have a mandolin slicer. I put it through that and then I slice what comes out as 'lasagna noodles' into vermacili noodles. Kind of labour intensive, but preparing food is a labour of love for me.

I loved it and soo happy to have found this great site. Thanks.

I used parsley instead of cilantro (I didn't have any cilantro) and it came out great.

How or What did you use to ribbon cut the zucchini? I cut mine with a knife and it didn't seem to come out as nice as yours did in the picture.

Sorry i didn't get back to you on the chili pep. question! Yes you can sub. it. You just want it for a little extra zing! And of cours, put more or less depending on your tastes. I think that goes for the lime juice as well.

I am sooooo glad you liked it!!! Thanks xox :)

I liked it too! It wasn't as beautifully plated, but it tasted great.

I enjoyed this for dinner and I'm not a huge cilantro fan! The longer I stay raw though, the more the taste has changed. I used to think cilantro tasted like soap, but now I think it's a very clean taste. Best of all it feels good in my tum!

By the way, that three 7" zucchinis. It almost looks like 37 at first glance.
