Dairy-Free, Whole30 Zoodle Primavera with Shrimp

April 29, 2019 0 Comments



Dairy-Free, Whole30 Zoodle Primavera with Shrimp Recipe

Pasta primavera is a glorious culinary celebration of the young, tender vegetables that usher in the awakening of fresh vegetal varieties at gardens, farmer’s market stands and grocery shelves. Traditionally, pasta serves as the base of this seasonal dish, tossed with just-cooked springtime veggies like asparagus, zucchini, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, yellow squash, peas and broccoli, and a lemony and herb-studded sauce thickened with olive oil and parmesan cheese.

We lightened the traditional dish substantially—instead of cheese, we whipped up an herby cashew sauce; instead of pasta, we used zoodles; instead of a huge mix of different veggies, we opted to let the zucchini be the focal point. We added fresh shrimp sauteed with lemon zest to our dairy-free remake, but if you want to keep the dish vegan, you can sub roasted broccoli or toasted walnuts or almonds.
