Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Carefully put the eggs in a pot with boiling water with a big spoon. Add a pinch of salt to the water for easier peeling. Cook for 5 to 6 minutes for soft-boiled eggs, 6 to 8 minutes for medium, and 8-10 minutes for hard-boiled eggs. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of cold water to cool, for 2 to 5 minutes. Peel the eggs, slice each in half, and set aside.
  2. Mix the tuna, mayo, and onion powder in a medium-sized bowl. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Create zucchini spirals using a spiralizer, or make thin strips, using a potato peeler. Toss the zoodles in a bowl together with olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  4. For serving, divide the zoodles onto plates, and top with the tuna, diced tomatoes, and eggs. Enjoy right away.
