Zucchini Noodle with Kale Pesto

3 medium zucchini***
1 bunch curly kale, destemmed and leaves torn
4 tablespoons sunflower seeds
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
½ ­ ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil (more for larger head of kale)
1 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
lemon slices for garnish
Spiralize zucchini or slice thin to create noodles. Set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the garlic, salt, sunflower seeds. Add the kale and continue to pulse
until chopped. Run the food processor, drizzling in the olive oil until combined.
Before serving, toss the noodles in half of the pesto. Serve noodles topped with your choice of
protein. Garnish with basil leaves. Enjoy!

Moroccan Cauliflower Rice Salad









1 head cauliflower
1 small sweet pepper, diced
½ red onion, diced
2 oranges, supremed (just the fruit, no pith)
¼ cup dried apricot, diced small
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
juice of ½ lemon
½ teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon ground coriander
½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon turmeric
½ teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
Cut the cauliflower into florets. Place florets in the bowl of the food processor and pulse until
they have a rice­like appearance. You may need to do this in several rounds depending on the
size of your food processor’s bowl. If you find the cauliflower won’t move, put it back on your
cutting board and chop the florets smaller. Add all remaining ingredients to the bowl and stir.
