Low Carb Vegetable Pasta with Buffalo Mozzarella and Steak

© 2021 |

© 2021 |

Turn the humble zucchini and carrot into noodles to enjoy a healthy, quick, and low carb weeknight meal. I use some leftover entrecôte for the noodles, but any kind of steak can be used for this recipe. Use regular cow milk mozzarella if you can't find buffalo mozzarella, which is so much creamier, softer and so much more flavourful. Feel free to swap in traditional pasta if you are not into low carb.

TzatzikiNoodles & Steak
  • 1/2 Cucumber, deseeded
  • 400 g Full fat Greek yoghurt
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Dill, chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  1. Grate the cucumber and strain. Combine the yoghurt with cucumber, minced garlic, olive oil, and herbs in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Using a stand or handheld spiraliser, cut zucchini and carrot into long thin strips. A julienne peeler would also work.
  3. Place the vegetable noodles in a large bowl. Pour in half of tzatziki sauce and toss to combine. Divide the noodles into two serving plates. Top with sliced entrecôte and tear in some mozzarella. Sprinkle some chopped herbs over. Serve with the remaining tzatziki.

I always learn something from you Angie, when I visit I feel like I'm attending culinary school! I did not know entrecote was rib eye steak! I love to cook with vegetable noodles, I must try spiraled carrots. Beautiful dish!

I love how balanced this is. And buffalo mozzeralla - I've never had it, but after reading your description, I want to try it!

Martha 21/4/21 16:03

Yum, this is my kind of meal!

I love zucchini and carrot noodles, but I haven't had it for a long time (I think they are not as trendy as they used to be a few years ago - not many reminders around lol), so thank you for such a delightful idea. With some steak and mozzarella, this is splendid!

We have leftover grilled flank steak all of the time. This would make a wonderful unique meal using some of it. Love the Tzatziki sauce. Great salad Angie!

Tzatziki is our traditional side dish! We love it so much and prepare it alot. We call it "cacik". Such a beautiful foods table. Pictures are perfect dear friend.
