This Creamy Sausage Zucchini Noodles recipe is a quick, easy and tasty recipe if you love sausages. The meal includes zucchini noodles, paleo sausages, spinach, coconut milk, lemon juice and some seasonings. The sauce has a creamy lemon flavor due to the combination of coconut milk and lemon.
This recipe is easily adaptable to suit your diet needs or the ingredients you have. If you don’t have sausages you can easily use meatballs or even use some chicken, If you’re on the AIP diet check if the sausages are AIP compliant and also skip the black pepper for seasoning after cooking, and use other herbs of choice. You can also change this sauce from the creamy lemon flavor to creamy garlic by swapping the lemons out for some garlic. Use coconut milk from the top of the can as it is thicker, for a more creamy flavor.
Creamy Sausage Zucchini Noodles Recipe
- 2 large zucchini
- 2 Paleo sausages
- 100 ml coconut milk( from the top of the can)
- 1 cup spinach
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- half a cup sliced spring onion leaves or shallots leaves
- pinch of turmeric
- half a teaspoon dried basil
- 1 or 2 tablespoons cooking oil of choice
- Black pepper for seasoning or other herbs of your choice
- Salt to taste
Prepare to cook by slicing the sausages, spiralizing the zucchini and slicing the spring onion leaves
In a pan at medium heat, start by frying the sausages in a tablespoon of cooking oil until they start to go golden brown. This should take about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the spring onions and cook for a further minute, then add the basil, salt and turmeric.
Add the lemon juice and stir then add the coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
Once it starts to simmer take the sausages off and set them aside, then add the spinach and zucchini noodles, mix them up in the sauce and leave to cook for about 1 to 2 minutes.
Take care not to cook for longer as the spinach and zucchini will start to release water the longer you cook them making your sauce watery and vegetables over cooked.
Once the zucchini noodles are done serve and top with your sausages.
Season with black pepper or other seasoning of your choice.
