Creamy Zucchini Pesto w/ ‘Noodles’
So much for what I had originally planned for dinner tonight. I must say this was a wonderful distraction. :) I’m still in food heaven. This was my first attempt at using zucchini noodles and an almost raw sauce. Came out better than I ever imagined. 
Creamy Zucchini Pesto
2 small zucchinis 1 cup fresh basil1/2 tsp Himalayan salt3 garlic cloves1 tablespoon tahini
Directions
Cut zucchinis into 1-inch chunks. Steam chunks over boiling water for about 3 minutes, or until just tender when pierced with a sharp knife. I kept mine a little stiff, I wanted this to be as raw as possible.
Place basil in a food processor and finely chop. Add zucchini, salt, garlic, and tahini. Process in short pulses until everything is finely chopped.
