Even if you’re not on any kind of particular diet this vegetable dish has lots of tangy flavor and is full of B vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. It’s the kind of meal you can make for yourself for lunch because it’s quick and very nutritious.

Serves 1

Note: You will need a vegetable spiralizer. I recommend one that is counter mounted.


  • 1 yellow squash
  • 1 clove of garlic finely minced
  • 2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • olive oil
  • Sea salt and fresh pepper


Spiralize the yellow squash and mince your garlic.

Heat a sauté pan on medium high and add a heavy slick of olive oil.

Gently toss your noodles and garlic in the pan until they have softened, reduced in size a little, and released some natural liquid.

Sprinkle in the nutritional yeast and stir everything together until it has fully dissolved.

Finish with a healthy dash of sea salt and lots of freshly ground pepper.
