I have for a super long time, to be honest with you. My purchased green Spirulina algae was sitting in my kitchen for months until I touched it for the first time. I'm not a big fan of any flavor connected to the sea, I have to add at this point. I have tried everything but neither raw nor fried, I just can't "befriend" sea-foods!
From a nutrient-balance point of view, it is super important though to integrate fish into your diet. Therefore, I recently started to experiment with spirulina and hey, I think we may become friends after all. In this recipe I added the green seaweed powder to raw zucchini, combined it with a raw and super healthy basil-avocado pesto and topped it on a loaf of bread. You wonder how the mix tastes? - Try it for yourself. I am in love! :)
My zoodle makers were actually gifts from my mom. She had two gadgets at home and told me: "Karo I actually never use these things - take them. They steel my shelf space!" :) So unless you have a mom who also has zoodle makers she never uses, I recommend you to go with the following options: Mini Zoodle Maker (my fist one is identical to this one but yellow) or larger Vegetable Cutter. Depending on the size of your veggie, the second gadget can really come in handy. Beetroots are a good example. With the small one, it's nearly impossible to make nice long veggie noodles.
My food processor is from Ninja. I bought this set over a year ago and so far it has accompanied my cooking sessions highly reliable. If you make a lot of pestos and hummus, and nut creams, I personally think, a food processor is a great investment. However, don't buy the gadget solely for the purpose of this recipe. A hand blender may do the job as well.
Everything in this recipe is super easy to by itself, I promise. The avocado pesto is an easy "throw everything in the mixer, mix & ready" recipe and the zoodles just have to be prepped, topped with spirulina, cucumber and sesame crunch, et voila - done as well!
Last but not least the egg and the bread: I like to fry my eggs in olive oil and spring onions to add not only a hearty flavor but also a slight taste of caramelized green to the mix. And for the bread, I highly recommend my whole grain bread recipe.
