It was the first time I’ve tried Yves Veggie Cuisine products, yet due to the delicious taste and my commitment to a healthier lifestyle – it won’t be the last.

For my Zucchini Noodles with an Avocado Sauce and Kale and Quinoa Bites recipe I of course used the Yves Veggie Cuisine Kale & Quinoa Bites.

I very well could have made this recipe with ordinary pasta noodles {go ahead if that is your preference}, yet I’ve been wanting to try zucchini noodles {zoodles} for a long time and thought it was due time. Despite ‘Zucchini Noodles with an Avocado Sauce and Kale and Quinoa Bites’ being a tasty mouthful, it’s actually a very quick recipe to make.

Zucchini noodles cook very fast and the sauce combines quickly and the Yves Veggie Cuisine Kale & Quinoa Bites take only 10-11 minutes of baking. Once I had the zucchini cut and cooking, I actually made the sauce just as my oven timer went off – this meal was made in under 30 minutes! If you’d like to add a delicious meal to your weekly plan, try this one for sure.

Enjoy this healthy zoodle recipe!

  1. This sounds wonderful! I have tried the bites before and have wondered how I could use them in other ways! Thanks for the recipe

  2. This does sound great! I’d like to try it. We grew our own kale last year. We had so much of it that I washed, dried, and ground it up into a powder. We have it in our smoothies daily.

  3. This was so good! I used regular spaghetti noodles, and had to sub 1.5 tbsp of apple cider vinegar for half the lemon juice, as I ran out. I’ll definitely be making this again!
