Zucchini & Artichoke in a Lemon Feta Sauce

Zucchini noodles and artichoke in a lemon and feta sauce is a perfect lunch for a summers day.  Or a pick me up lunch during a cold, grey day!


This is an easy and quick dish to make.  If you don’t have a spiralizer, you could cut the zucchini into noodles with a mandolin.  Or carefully peel into ribbons.

I whipped this up quickly one lunch time whilst the Chief Taster had “manflu” as I had banned him from any dairy which meant I got to eat this all to myself.  I was a hero that day as I struggled through, barely coming up for air as the delicious vegetables and sauce kept me quiet for 5 minutes.   The lemon, feta and basil are a perfect summer combination and this sauce could be used for any vegetables, or perhaps chicken or fish.   I also think that a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese would not hurt it either.

    I made this tonight and loved it!!

    I riffed on it a bit, I hope it’s ok to share…
    1- I seasoned with salt and pepper along the way.
    2- Instead of cream I used approx 1/4 cup of cream cheese (just what I had available).
    3- I added 1 drained and rinsed can of cannellini beans to beef up the meal for a meatless Monday main.
    4- Also topped with grated Parmesan and put under the broiler for 5 minutes before serving.

    So yummy!!! Even my meat and potatoes husband loved it.

    Love your site, have book-marked it & can’t to try many of your recipes!
    This recipe looks amazing! However, I believe the calorie content is wrong (just the butter has more calories!).
