Zucchini Noodles with Ginger and Tomatoes

Paleo, Whole 30 and Vegan zucchini noodles with ginger, garlic and tomatoes. If you don't love ginger you can skip it. It's great either way! I highly recommend sprinkling zoodles with sea salt and allowing to rest for 15 minutes before cooking. This prevents sogginess:)

  • 4 med size zucchini, ends cut off and 'spiralized'
  • 1 cup heirloom cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4-1/2 inch ginger nub, peeled and grated with a microplane
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1-2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • handful of roasted pine nuts: optional


  1. Use your spiralizer to make zucchini noodles, or "zoodles". Place them in colander, sprinkle with sea salt and toss. Let rest for 10 minutes, then place between two paper towels to press out excess water. While zucchini rests, slice tomatoes, mince garlic and grate ginger.

  2. Place olive oil in a large pan on medium heat.

  3. When hot, add garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes.

  4. Add zucchini. Cook for 3 minutes gently stirring occasionally.
  5. Add 1/4" -1/2" grated ginger (depending on taste preference) and tomatoes, cook for 2-3 more minutes. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and sea salt. Garnish with pine nuts if desired. That's it!
