Raw Vegan Spaghetti Recipe

This recipe is gluten-free, vegan, and raw.

Preparation Time: about 45 min

Serves: 4, more or less, depending on how hungry you are ūüôā

 

 

This recipe for what I like to call ‘raw spaghetti’ is composed of zucchini pasta topped with an altered version of raw sundried tomato marinara sauce found at feedlife.ca.

 

For this recipe, you will need a spiralizer (such as the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer) or another piece of kitchen equipment that can make noodles out of zucchini. ¬†If you don’t have a spiralizer, you can check out this blog post on ohsheglows.com¬†which details how to make veggie pasta with a julienee peeler: how to spiralize vegetables.

 

Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

For the pasta: about 3 zucchinis to serve 4 (I used 2 which made 2 large bowls of pasta)

For the sauce:

-9 fresh medium-sized on-the-vine tomatoes

-1 red bell pepper

-a handful of fresh basil leaves

-a couple sprigs of fresh parsley

-2 tablespoons lemon juice

-1 clove of garlic

-a dash of cayenne pepper, more or less depending on your taste preferences

 

Start with making the pasta. ¬†Below are pictures of the zucchini being spiralized…

¬†Next, prepare the tomatoes, pepper, herbs, garlic, and lemon juice for putting into the food processor…

¬†And dump them in. ūüôā¬†

Pulse until blended but slightly chunky for the sake of texture.

Adorn your zucchini pasta with the fresh tomato sauce and a decorative basil leaf or sprig of parsley and you’re on your way to a delicious and healthy meal!

 

Raw Oatmeal

Okay, so we’ve all been taught that oatmeal is healthy, right? ¬†But is there a way to make it even healthier? ¬†One suggestion is to eat it raw. ¬†Instead of cooking all the nutrients out, you can simply soak the oatmeal overnight and have it ready for the next morning – perfectly quick, perfectly nutritious, perfectly raw. ¬†Just add the same amount of water as oatmeal – a 1:1 ratio (1 cup of oatmeal = 1 cup of water). ¬†Top it with your favorite fruit and spices and drizzle on a healthy sweetener like maple syrup – yum!
