Servings 2


  • 1 zucchini
  • 200 g lima beans / butter beans drained. White beans or chickpeas are good substitutes
  • 150 g cherry tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 2-3 tbsp vegan pesto topped
  • sesame seeds optional - as topping
  • lemon zest optional - as topping


  • Thinly slice the zucchini into raw zucchini noodles. To get the thin slices I use a multi-purpose box grater. When there is not much left of the zucchini and it is a bit difficult to use the grater you can use a knife to thinly slice the rest of the zucchini noodles.
