Sauce:

1/2 cup
Peruvian Dried Black Olives (pitted and chopped)

1/3 cup sundried tomatoes (soaked & chopped)
1 small bunch of basil chopped
1 clove garlic

Optional: add chopped nuts on top of your dish for decoration (pine nuts or walnuts)

Put all the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. (optionally you can add the olives into the sauce after it is blend or add them on top of your dish before serving.)

Place your noodles on the dish and spoon on your sauce. Again you can add the olives last or add some nuts.

Note: If you do not have access to a Spirooli then you can substitute with kelp noodles. **Have your kids help you use the Spirooli :) **

Serves: 2 to 4 (depends on the size of zucchini)

The recipe for the flatbread is very confusing. Is there a way you can seperate it so there is one ingrediant per line? and did you mean I could use 1 cup brazil nuts or 1 cup of chia seeds?

thanks

Our apologies for any confusion. In draft mode it did not combine lines like that. Yes, 1 cup of brazil nuts or chia seeds. I'll go back and edit to make one line per ingredient.
