crab & avocado zoodles

crab & avocado zoodles | my skinny sweet tooth

If you haven’t been making noodles out of veggies by now, well then, you’re completely missing out. This recipe came about as most of mine do: cleaning out the fridge! That’s where creativity shines and recipes like this are born.

Crunchy zoodles, creamy avocado, and that crab flavor makes a great side dish or a main meal. Only 3 main ingredients. That’s it! I love when it works out that way 😉 This dish is so fresh and light that it’s perfect for these summer months.

Quick blog post for a quick and easy meal.

crab & pea shoot salad

crab & pea shoot salad | my skinny sweet tooth

Summer is among us and that means various things. Two of which I’m most excited for: picnics and lighter meals. This crab salad is both. Mayo-free and has only 4 ingredients (no sweating away in the kitchen!) You could also make a lot or just a single serving with ease. I’ve had this salad different ways; on it’s own, as a “lobster” roll, atop sliced cucumber or baguette, stuffed in a tomato or avocado. So many ways to enjoy this. 🙂 Plus, at only 3pp per serving, you can definitely have wiggle room with your additions.

One healthier swap to this recipe is greek cream cheese (cream cheese made with greek yogurt -yay protein!). It also adds a richness and depth that makes one forget mayo even exists. Bonus! I also love the addition of pea shoots; slightly crunchy and has a great subtle pea flavor, almost celery-like. If you can’t find pea shoots, by all means, feel free to substitute diced celery. It’s just as good and has that classic crab salad flavor/texture. 🙂

Sushi Bowl

sushi bowl | my skinny sweet tooth

A sushi bowl is the perfect “sushi” meal for us lazy folk (me!) who hasn’t grasped the concept of making actual sushi. I’ve tried once or twice and it was tasty, but the presentation was somewhat lacking. Who am I kidding? It lacked completely 😉 I don’t know how the professionals do it … but I’ll leave all that good stuff for them. I, on the other hand, will enjoy it nestled in a bowl 🙂

This particular one is a California Roll (with added carrots!) I typically don’t have fresh sushi grade tuna or salmon in my fridge. Imitation crab is more convenient. However, feel free to make your favorite sushi roll into the perfect portioned meal in a bowl.
