SMOKY TAHINI, HEMP & LIME ZUCCHINI PASTA


Time to get back on track! Since my last post, I have powered through my Master program, completed 6 demanding months of internship/placement, moved back to the other side of the country, gained my accreditation to practice as a Dietitian (yay!), and established my own plant-based Dietetic consulting business (insert exhausted sigh here!)

Although, as always, I have been busy in the kitchen... the time to post evidence of my efforts and update my blog never seemed to materialise. But today, feeling a little less overwhelmed by daily demands, I've grabbed out my camera and taken a minute to stop and snap a shot of my delish lunch before getting stuck in. 

I was really impressed with how this zucchini pasta worked out! The dash of smoked paprika, generous dollop of creamy tahini, and splash of zesty lime juice really made it shine. 

What you need:

1/2 large zucchini, spiralized
1/2 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon hemp seeds
1/2 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 tablespoon hulled tahini
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika (aka pimentón)
Salt and pepper, to taste

Bringing it together:

1. Add the spiralized zucchini noodles to a serving bowl. 
2. Drizzle over the tahini and sprinkle on the hemp seeds, sesame seeds, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. 
3. Add the lime juice over the top and toss to combine. 
4. Set stuck in!

(Makes enough for 1)
