Neatballs & Zucchini Noodles with Carrot Top Pesto

When zucchini & carrots are in season, this hearty ‘living’ main course is a great way to minimize time in the kitchen, while still creating a gourmet meal. You can also top the Neatballs & Zucchini Noodles with any pesto or marinara sauce if carrot tops are not readily available.


Serves 4-6

2 cups of MAGIC MIX 
1 cup water
4 medium zucchini
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp or so of olive oil
salt and ground pepper (to taste)
1 Tbsp of nutritional yeast
10- 12 pre-baked neatballs
Cherry tomatoes and basil for garnish and flavour.

Mindful Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Mix MAGIC MIX with water and let sit for a few minutes.
  3. Scoop and shape into small balls and bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown
  4. Spiralize or use a peeler to create ‘noodles’ from the zucchini. Toss with a pinch of salt and let drain in a colander for 15 minutes. You could do this first and let drain while baking the Neatballs.
  5. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add noodles and minced garlic. Gently toss for 3 minutes. Once softened, transfer to a larger bowl.
  6. Add pesto, nutritional yeast and combine.
  7. Add neatballs and garnish with fresh tomatoes and basil.

YUM! ❤️
