Sometimes being on a low carb diet can be tough, especially if you are a pasta lover. But even if you are managing what you eat, you still have options! Many of my patients rave about zucchini noodles as a delicious and healthy meal. As we head towards colder temperatures, try this warm recipe.
2 zucchinis, peeled
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup water
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Cut lengthwise slices from zucchini using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue ‘peeling’ until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until zucchini is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
