Well, what do you know. I tried my hand at this whole Paleo diet, and I have been doing really well all week, and then realized after making this dish, that I cooked with edamame, and duh, it’s a BEAN/LEGUME! The good news, I will be trading the noodles out for a bed of greens, and it will still be delicious. The noodles can go to the big man. This will also hopefully give you all some inspiration for learning some tricks in the world of tradesies. Now onward with this 30 day kick.
This week was a little thrown off, so no video for those that religiously watch my weekly videos. My day off consisted of a lot of errands and a bit of coverage, and puppy time, so my blog dedication was a bit limited. This week was a recipe that has no measurements or nutrition facts, but simple pure goodness came out of the mix. I had some basil in my garden that needed to get used up, so pesto was a must have. Zucchini and squash are something I am getting on the regular, so it was a wonderful addition to the leftover diced tomatoes I had from last week italian style dish. My creative juices were flowing and I was ready to experiment.
The edamame spaghetti is something I have had my eye on at Costco for quite some time, and honestly, if you love pasta and are not eating paleo, this stuff is bomb. So many grams of protein and fiber, all in one serving! Couldn’t have been more impressed by a noodle.
The assembly of this dish was so simple and quick! Easily could have been prepared in 20 minutes. Pesto was a 5 minute process with roasting the pine nuts, the veggies and pasta took 15 minutes from chop to serve. The shrimp, well I got a little sneaky and bought the precooked kind of shrimp, and may I just say, that might be a new trick I keep in mind when shopping.
I tried a new pesto this week, different than my recipe a few weeks ago, and this one I did try to follow the recipe. Turned out less creamy, but man, so good! Another good option of a good tradesy, trying different types of pesto! There are so many different ways to make this dish yours, and something that is palatable to you. The question is, are you ready for it?! Let’s give it a shot!
