The Good News Zucchini is an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, an essential mineral. Here, Ani Phyo pairs it with a vitamin-rich marinara, a superversatile recipe: "I can use it every way one would use a cooked tomato sauce."

  1. 1 1/4 pounds tomatoes, diced
  2. 2 dry-packed or oil-packed sun-dried tomato halves
  3. 1/2 cup basil leaves
  4. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  6. 1 soft Medjool date, pitted and minced
  7. 1 small garlic clove
  8. 1 teaspoon thyme leaves
  9. 1 teaspoon coarsley chopped flat-leaf parsley
  10. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  11. 4 medium zucchini (1 3/4 pounds)
  1. In a blender, combine the fresh tomatoes with the sun-dried tomatoes, basil, olive oil, lemon juice, date, garlic, thyme and parsley and puree until smooth. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  2. Using a mandoline, cut the zucchini lengthwise into 1/8-inch slices, then cut the slices lengthwise into 1/8-inch strips resembling spaghetti. Transfer the zucchini noodles to a bowl. Add the marinara sauce, toss to coat and serve immediately.
Make Ahead The marinara can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Notes One Serving 209 cal, 15 gm fat, 2.1 gm sat fat, 19 gm carb, 4.7 gm fiber.
