  • 2 small zucchinis
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/4 cup almond milk
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato sauce
  • 1 plum tomato, thinly sliced
  • 1 pinch Italian seasoning
  • fresh basil (or parsley)
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon capers


  • Spiralize the zucchini. If the zucchini is extra moist, take a paper towel to the zucchini and dab it dry so that no excess water remains.
  • In a small microwave safe bowl, combine the nutritional yeast, almond milk, olive oil and garlic. Cook in the microwave for 30-60 seconds until warm. 
  • Remove and whisk the mixture until well combined. Add the salt, pepper, and tomato sauce. Whisk again. 
  • Toss the zucchini noodles with the almond milk mixture. 
  • Add the sliced tomato, Italian seasoning, basil, red pepper flakes, and capers. Serve warm!


For a protein boost add chickpeas, chicken, or gluten-free sausage, for a Paleo option.
