Creamy Curry Spiralized Zucchini Pasta

Creamy Curry Spiralized Zucchini Pasta

Ingredients

  • 1 large zucchini squash
  • 1-2 cups of veggies [broccoli, cauliflower, onion, carrots]
  • 1/4 tsp curry powder, plus extra if you're feeling feisty
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder salt and pepper, to taste

CREAMY CURRY SAUCE:

  • 3 Tbsp fresh or store bought mayo or yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp of curry powder, plus extra to taste
  • 1/2 tsp of white vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • a pinch of mustard powder or turmeric, if you have it!

EXTRAS:

  • chopped green onion
  • fresh parsley

Instructions

  1. Bring a pot or skillet with about 1/2 inch of shallow water to a boil, toss in broccoli florets, cauliflower florets and chopped carrots and allow to blanch for just a few minutes to soften.
  2. While they are boiling, heat a skillet with a little bit of olive, grape-seed, or coconut oil and saute your onions until tender.
  3. Remove your blanched veggies from heat, strain in a colander, and add to the onions.
  4. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, a sprinkle of garlic powder and 1/4 tsp curry powder.
  5. Stir to incorporate and remove from heat once veggies reach desired tenderness. Since you already blanched them, this will take no time at all. Woot!
  6. Next, use a spiral slicer to crank the zucchini into delicious veggie curls. Alternatively you can easily use a veggie peeler or mandolin slicer to do the same!
  7. Serve your zuke raw [or steamed... but it rocks raw!] with your heaping pile of curried veggies and top with a delicious drizzle of creamy curry dressing.
  8. To make the dressing, whisk together mayo, vinegar and spices and serve at room temperature. Garnish with green onions and a sprinkle of parsley.

Don’t have a zucchini handy? Try this dish with fluffy rice or quinoa!

So… how was it? 

Fabulous and flavorful! This dish was created with and inspired by leftover veggies from the Samosa Stuffed Potatoes I made a few days prior. If you’ve been meaning to try them, get your twice-baked potato on and then make this dish with the leftovers. Its practically 2 recipes for the effort of one. Score!

The creamy curry sauce is absolutely heavenly over the tender zucchini noodles, while the warm curried veggies add fabulous texture and heartiness to the dish.  Its creamy, savory and refreshing… and also rocks alongside grilled salmon or as an impressive and delicious main dish.

ahhh thank you thank you! Highlight of my day for sure! =)

Ann

Sorry if I sound clueless! But I am guessing you eat this cold?

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

You can eat this any way you’d like! =)

I prefer room temp zucchini noodles with hot steamy veggies and room temp sauce – but you could serve the entire thing chilled or the entire thing cooked too! Whichever combo works best for your tastebuds =)

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Thanks Lora!!!!! It was an exciting surprise! =)

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

eeee thank you!

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli

DUDE! How did I not know you had a spiralizer? So jealous! I’d buy one, but I already know what would happen…I’d be enamored with it for a week or two and then it would find it’s way into the back of one of my cabinets only to be seen when I break out the casserole dishes for Thanksgiving dinner…that’s where the apple peeler/corer/slicer and my mandolin are right now! Hahaha! 

The curry dressing sounds amazing! I’m thinking that would be really good on a quinoa salad with some veggies and maybe a few dried apricots or cranberries thrown in! 🙂

Baker Street

The creamy curry dressing sounds delish! 

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

haha nooo you would so use it! I’ve had it for over a year and still use mine!!!

Kaylaclarke7

I made this tonight and it was absolutely fantastic ! I added chicken, and used half greek yogurt half mayo for the dressing. SO delish, quick, and simple !

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Yay!!!! Thanks Kayla! SO flipping stoked you liked it! I wasn’t sure if it was too crazy of a dish to blog (I told my husband what I had made and he told me i’m a weirdo!) but i’m over the moon you made it! =) Hope you had a fabulous weekend girly!
