What You'll Need;

3 cups frozen peas

1 small leek

1/2 cup baby spinach

2 garlic cloves

1/2 onion

2 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tbsp organic butter (or nuttelex for dairy free)

salt and pepper to taste

1 large zucchini spiralized

100g speck

How To;

To begin, boil your peas in a pot of hot water until soft. Drain and set aside. Next, finely chop the speck, onion, leek and garlic and pop the speck into a cold pan. Heat the speck on a low heat for around five minutes until crispy. Remove the speck from the pan, without removing the fat, and pop your garlic and onion into the pan on a medium heat, cooking until brown. In a high-speed blender, add the onion, garlic, peas, spinach, nutritional yeast, butter, salt and pepper, and blend until smooth. Set your sauce aside, and with a spiralizer, spiralize your zucchini. Once this is done, add the zucchini, leek and a pinch of salt to a pan on a medium heat and cook for two minutes to soften. Add the sauce to your zoodles and wa-lah! Your low carb, green pasta is reeeeady!
