Sustainable cooking and organic produce go hand in hand 🌿 that’s why I urge everyone to understand what it means to cook sustainably, that’s why I love working with YUZU agriculture and local businesses alike 👩🏽‍🍳


  • YUZU’s Zucchini, spiralized into noodles
  • Basil Pesto (using YUZU’s Basil from our basil series)
  • Handful of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1-2 tablespoons nutritional yeast (adjust to taste)
  • Olive oil, for sautéing

Optional Add-ins:

  • Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Mushrooms, sliced
  • Capsicum (bell pepper), thinly sliced
  • Seafood (shrimp or scallops work well)
  • Chicken, grilled and sliced


  1. Prepare the Zucchini Noodles:

    • Wash the zucchini and use a spiralizer to create zucchini noodles (zoodles). Set aside.
      If you don't have a spiralizer, just cut sheets of zucchini using a mandoline and slice finely.
  2. Sauté the Vegetables:

    • In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. If you're adding mushrooms and capsicum, sauté them first until they start to soften.
    • Add the zucchini noodles and cherry tomatoes to the skillet. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, just until the zoodles are tender but still have a bite to them.
  3. Add the Pesto:

    • Reduce the heat to low and stir in the basil pesto until the zoodles and vegetables are well-coated. If using seafood, add it now and toss until heated through.
  4. Season & Serve:

    • Sprinkle nutritional yeast over the top and give everything a good toss. If using grilled chicken, place slices on top.
    • Transfer to serving plates. If desired, top with crumbled feta cheese.
    • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Chef's Notes:

  • Remember, sustainable cooking isn't just about the ingredients you use, but also about minimizing waste. Save any unused zucchini parts for stocks or composting.
  • Feel free to get creative with this recipe! The beauty of zucchini spaghetti is its versatility. Swap out or add ingredients based on what's in season or what you have on hand.
