Comfort Noddles

It’s easy to feel a little overwhelmed when you a finish a challenge like Whole30.

Don’t get me wrong it was a fantastic experience and I learned loads, and now I know that certain foods, although yummy do not agree with me.

Whole30 really got me out of a cooking rut. It made me rethink what I have for meal times.

We all have safe foods and meals that are our go-to, and that we cook over and over again.

One of the recipes that I discovered because of Whole30 was Melissa’s Comfort Noddles. It’s super easy and really yummy.

The original recipe can be found here

Ingredients

  • 2 small zucchini, julienned (about 2 cups) [Julienne peeler or Spiralizer is essential.]
  • generous 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon almond flour or almond meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2-3 eggs, scrambled
  • 2 spring onions finely chopped
  • a handful of fresh parsley or coriander, minced for garnish (optional)
  • 1-2 tbs cottage cheese (optional)
  • salt & pepper, to taste

Method

  1. Spiralise your zucchini
  2. Squeeze out the juice
  3. Transfer spiralized zucchini to bowl and sprinkle with salt
  4. Set aside it for up to 20 minutes
  5. Drain & squeeze out excess liquid.
  6. DO NOT skip steps 1-5. You will be tempted, but it’s worth it, I promise.
  7. While the zucchini is sweating, heat up a skillet over medium-high heat.
  8. Mix the almond flour with the coconut oil then saute in the pan until toast brown
  9. Transfer your crumb mix from the pan to a plate to cool.
  10. Return the pan to heat and add the zucchini noodles.
  11. Sauté until just tender, about 1-2 minutes.
  12. Push the noodles to the side of the pan, and reduce heat to medium-low.
  13. Add the olive oil and garlic. When the garlic is fragrant, about 20 seconds, pour in the eggs and allow them to cook until just beginning to set a tiny bit. Mix the zucchini noodles into the egg and continue to stir gently and continuously until the egg is set and clinging to the noodles.
  14. Add the cottage cheese if you are using
  15. Turn off the heat and stir through the spring onions, coriander.
  16. Sprinkle with your crumb mix

Enjoy!
