zucchini pasta with gina's hemp-esan

feeling much better today, i made a yummy pasta dish for an early dinner.

zucchini pasta tossed with garlic and olive oil is always so tasty and easy to make. it seems to be my go-to meal when i don't have much fresh produce on hand.

i enjoy the simplicity of the ingredients, but the addition of gina's hemp-esan and a drizzle of lemon juice brings the flavors to a whole new level!

to make this delicious and nutritious dish, you will need a spiral slicer, which can be purchased online for around 25 dollars.

simply spiralize one zucchini, then add veggies of choice, chopped garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and you've got an amazing meal in minutes!

for gina's hemp-esan, just process 3 tablespoons hemp seeds with 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast and a pinch of salt if you'd like. how easy is that?!

to those who don't care for zucchini pasta, i highly recommend trying it with gina's hemp-asan. i have to admit, i was getting a bit sick of zucchini pasta, but now i can't wait to make it again!=)


  1. Looks good! I have had some zucchini noodles I like and some I don't. I mainly don't like it when they get slimy. Is there a trick for that?

  2. Yum! Thanks for the review and inspiring me to pick up some zucchinis. Well, not right this minute but next time I go to the store. :) Looks great! Oh and glad you're feeling better too.

  3. Nice work, Kellie! Love spiralized zuke noods and the happyhempy dressing there. Forgot about that post of hers, thanks for reviving it! YUM!

  4. thanks girls!

    bitt - i noticed the noddles from the center of the zucchini where the seeds are tend to be more watery. you could remove those noodles after spiralizing, or maybe scoop the seeds out prior.

  5. Hey Kelli!

    I read that post on Gena's site. Sounds so amazing and I can't wait to try it out. I don't have a spiralizer yet so I might try it with some rice noodles. Thanks for sharing your recipe:)

  6. that looks AMAZING. the lemon..the sprinkly hempy-ness. AGHH.

  7. Jon is very well taken care of!

  8. Oh I'm just loving this new way to dress up zucchini pasta! Somehow I missed this one on Gena's blog, glad you brought attention to it. Gorgeous photos, too.

  9. Zuke pasta is DELICIOUS! It's BETTER than regular pasta, in my opinion. It's lighter. It's not as dry. It's easier to chew. It sops up sauces and juices so much easier. Thanks for the hempesean recipe. :)
