I have to admit, whenever a get a new kitchen toy, I make all the things that I can with it. My newest gadget is the Veggie Bullet. (Not sponsored, just use it and like it). It makes zoodles, and more zoodles quickly, and as you know, zoodle gadgets aren't always easy to use. Using zucchini and yellow squash, I made this Zoodles With Avocado Basil Pesto dish for lunch. The secret to the great flavor in this dish is the Pesto--see if you agree. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
