Creamy Zucchini Noodles White Lentil Spring Onion Sauce + Cheesy Sunflower Sprinkle Recipe

Notes: I purchased my white lentils at a Canadian bulk food chain and have seen them at Whole Foods, health food stores , and shops that specialize in Indian foods. When I tossed the zucchini noodles with the sauce, I added a little drizzle of chili oil too (this one). I find that I almost always need a spicy thing in a bowl food situation, so that’s a highly recommended extra step! 😉 Also, I know it seems weird to see a sweetener used in the sauce ingredients, but it’s honestly just there for balance as opposed to a full on sweetness. Finally, as I mentioned above: If you can’t find white lentils where you live, feel free to substitute with brown/green lentils or red split lentils. The colour will be a bit different, but the flavour and texture will still be all there.
