You love pasta, but you have a habit of eating way too much of it? We've been there. The answer is Zoodles. Zucchini noodles! It's an absolute hit among healthy foodies. Combined with a bolognese sauce made from lentils, the dish is not only purely plant-based, but also deliciously hearty.

Preparation:

The Bolognese is enough for 3 portions. One zucchini will give you 1 portion of zoodles.  

  1. Cut the onion, carrot and celery into small cubes. Chop the garlic.
  2. Fry the vegetables with the coconut oil in a medium pot for about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the lentils and the tomato paste, fry briefly and then pour in the broth.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, sugar, bay leaf and thyme and let everything simmer at medium heat for 25 minutes.
  5. In the meantime, season with salt, pepper and paprika powder.
  6. Slice the zucchini into long strips. If you like, you can fry them in some oil. They also taste very good raw and cold.
  7. Coarsely chop the Protein Flakes, yeast flakes, some salt and garlic powder in a mixer.
  8. Arrange the zucchini noodles with the lentil bolognese and the Protein Flakes mixture.
  9. Enjoy!

how do you make zucchini noodles?

With a spiralizerYou can get one online and it won't set you back much. In addition to smaller models, which look like a pencil sharpener, there are also larger ones with a hand crank which give the same result. You can also get the same noodle effect with a peeler.
