Spiralized Sesame Cucumber and Zucchini Bowl with Avocado

Spiralized Sesame Cucumber and Zucchini Bowl with Avocado

We’re in week #2 of my vegan month, and today, I’m sharing this extra-green bowl of noodles.

I love how colorful vegan eating can be and how it’s easy to make meals that are green.

I’m happy to be back home and cooking. Not until I’m away do I realize how much I truly love cooking and how much it makes me happy.

I turn on the music, put on something comfy, and just cook. There’s nothing more relaxing and entertaining than cooking. There’s something about watching a meal come together in steps that’s especially gratifying.

Yesterday, I had to test a few remaining recipes again from my second cookbook (cover real and more details coming soon, I promise!) and so I spent the entire afternoon in the kitchen.

After a few days of bacheloretting, there’s nothing like making your own healthy, nutritious meals. My body was begging me for it!

This Asian-dressed salad is chock full of detoxifying, hydrating veggies, such as zucchini, cucumber, and bell peppers. The avocado is anti-bloating, the edamame and nut butter pack the protein, and the dressing is light, but flavorful.

This dish doesn’t save very well in the refrigerator, because of the cucumbers, but if you’d like to save it, omit the cucumbers at first and add them fresh when you’re ready to eat!

That’s all, folks – I am doing something I’ve never done before tomorrow, so make sure you’re following me on Snapchat or Instagram to follow along. You won’t believe it – and you’ll be very proud!

  1. Since you're recipe testing for cookbook #2 during your vegan month, I'm curious....is the new cookbook strictly vegan recipes? By the way, love cucumber noodles--need to remember they're not just for summer salads!
  2. Hi Ali, I absolutely love your recipes and I bought the Spiralizer because of these recipes. But is there a way to print your recipes with the pictures? Its hard to convince my husband to try some of the recipes because he cannot see the "finished" product unless I bring up your website. He loves all the SkinnyTaste recipes because of the pictures and step by step pics which are very helpful. Please, please see if you can do this. It would be so helpful! Thank you!
  3. Nice recipe. Light and healthy. Love it. Will try this soon. Thanks!
  4. Hi Ali I love your posts and find them really inspirational. I was wondering how you are finding your energy levels now that you are following a vegan diet? You seem to have a relatively small proportion of protein in this meal - do you find you are getting more hungry or tired? I have tried a number of different diets (in the name of research!) including Metabolic Balance, a vegan (Carol Vorderman) one, as well as more recently the Body Coach (higher protein, and more carbohydrates on training days). Do you think this way of eating will be sustainable? Best wishes Natalie
  5. I absolutely love cucumber noodles! It's amazing how spiralizing them can make them more satisfying. I'm such a fan of cold noodle bowls, so I can't wait to try this. Did you eat vegan during the bachelorette party?
