If you are looking for a light pasta, zucchini noodles are the answer. Zucchini is such a versatile ingredient. Thanks to its high water content and firm texture, it can go from being a perfect juice ingredient to the ultimate raw, vegan noodles. All you need is a spiralizer; there are many versions, and they are easy to find. 

Zucchinis are an ideal main ingredient for a light, fresh dish that’s a bit more exciting than salads. These raw, vegan zucchini noodles are quick to prepare and highly nutritious. They give us the high-powered efficiency for days when we are low on time but still want a special, tasty, energizing meal.

For a fresh salad feeling, there are two ingredients that can’t be missed: olive oil and balsamic vinegar!  The neutral green flavor of the zucchini shows off the flavors we pair with it.

Perfect side dish or main course.

We are happy to share with you this tasty, creative option for making the most of your fresh veggies. It is great as a main or side dish–for lunch or for dinner.

More often than not, the philosophy of “less is more” applies perfectly to our meals, especially if we have high-quality ingredients like Guerzoni’s biodynamic balsamic vinegar. This biodynamic product is exceptional, from the producer’s special treatment of its grapes, to their holistic processing, which bring a unique, bittersweet flavor to the consumer.

Knowing our farmer makes everything we consume special. Of course, now the “secret ingredient” in this dressing isn’t so secret anymore!
