Last night’s dinner of a Raw Zucchini Pasta was so quick and easy! It is a fast and easy meal that everyone will love! It’s flavorful, healthy, and fresh tasting! I love this dish because it feels you up but in a way that is not too heavy, its light and satisfies the desire for pasta.
Peel the outer skin off of a Zucchini ( I use one to one and a half Zucchini per person) and then with your peeler, peel the Zucchini into strips that will become your “pasta” and place the strips onto a pile in the center of the plate.
In a food processor combine all the following and process/blend until you reach your desired consistency. I like my sauce a little on the chunky side, so I just pulse the food processor a few times to achieve the perfect pasta sauce.
1 Cup of tomatoes ( I use the little cherry tomatoes)
1 Cup of soaked sundried tomatoes
1 Tblsp of chopped Garlic
1 small onion, peeled and chopped
1 Tblsp of Hemp Oil
1-2 Tblsp of Balsamic Vinegar (based on your tastes)
1 Tblsp of dried Rosemary
1 Tblsp of dried Thyme
Sea salt to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
The juice of one lemon
I like to add fresh mushrooms to the sauce once it was blended, and top with raw Sunflower Seeds or another type of raw nut. Enjoy!
