Butternut Squash and Cashew Cream Zoodles

Butternut Squash and Cashew Cream Zoodles

No matter how you say it. zoodles or courgetti are popping up everywhere recently and when it comes to cooking these gems, I needed to consult my friend who introduced me to these veggie lover, low carb squash noodles! We have been talking about the best sauce for these babies and when I mentioned a butternut squash, cream sauce, the following was born.

Sundays are market and cooking days for me and to share this experience with a friend this week was special!

We walked from stall to stall eyeing up what we wanted to buy for the cooking to come and I knew this garlic would help to balance the sweetness of the squash for our zoodle sauce.

For the squash sauce:
1 butternut squash
1 handful of baby tomatoes
4 cloves of  garlic
Glug of olive oil
1/4 soy milk

1 cup cashews
1 cup water
1/2 lemon
Pinch cayenne pepper

Cut the squash in thirds
Cut off  the skin and cube into 1 inch pieces

Bake for 35 minutes, until soft
Remove the garlic skins
Add the roasted veggies and tomatoes to a blender with the soy milk

For the zoodles:

Putting it all together:
