Push down sides with a spatula and blend again, this time drizzling with olive oil while processing until smooth. Set aside.
  • Spiralize Zucchini and set aside.  (note you can buy already spiralized Zucchini if you don’t want to have to do this yourself).
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and add frozen peas, cook for one minute, drain into a colander.
  • Put the peas back into the pot, add the zucchini and Pesto to the same pot and toss for 1-2 minutes, until Zucchini noodles are tender-crisp (be careful not to overcook them otherwise they will become soggy).
  • Serve hot in your Coconut Bowls or leave the pot in the fridge for a chilled pasta the next day. Add sea salt and black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh Basil and Mint Leaves.
