Zoodle Nests With Baked Eggs Recipe

Zoodles recipe courtesy Ryan Carter

Add this zoodles recipe to your list of favorite ways to cook zucchini pasta. Zoodles, or zucchini noodles, are made from a spiralizer that turns your favorite veggies into a great low-carb pasta alternative (or vegetti, for those in the know).

As long as your zucchini is not genetically modified, it is a healthy, nutrient-dense source of potassium, phosphorus, and fiber – and notoriously low in carbs as well. In fact, this zoodle recipe contains just 6 grams of carbs per serving. The ghee, eggs, and avocado make its fat content beautifully bountiful at 25 grams. Garnish your zoodle nests with your favorite Bulletproof spices, and you are in business.

  3. Spiralize your zucchinis.
  4. Add zoodles to pan with ghee, and sauté for a few minutes.

  6. Crack egg and drop it into the middle of your zoodle nest. Then repeat with the other egg.
