These delightfully fresh Zoodles with avocado sauce and cherry tomatoes helped me through my 10-days raw food challenge. The recipe was inspired by the instagrammer @fitomatoe :)
I have now tested them several times at home. My husband is enthusiastically about them too - so I think I can recommend these zucchini noodles with a clear conscience. In anticipation of spring I made the zoodles a little bit spiced with chili flakes, green onions and pine nuts und colourful thanks to the two-coloured cherry tomatoes.
By the way - this photo was taken with a professional camera of Canon. Since last Friday I'm happy testing a Canon 5DsR - including a super cool 50-millimeter lens. So for 14 days I'm in heaven for food fotographers - if somethin like this exists :-)-. As I have previously already photographed with Canon, I felt familiar relatively quickly with the camera. My only problem, which I still face is the RAW format of the camera, because my editing programme is not compatible with it. But I hope, I'll be able to master these small technical hurdle soon.
Anyway, hopefully many beautiful photos will soon appear here and I hope that the Zoodles in this image come across as fresh and crisp as I have seen them through the lenses :)!
