Raw gluten free pasta

raw-gluten-free-pasta

Although this is one of the most common raw food recipes I had never tried it until yesterday when I bought my own spiralizer. It is really easy to make. You just put a zucchini (or any other vegetable) in the spiralizer, turn the handle and out comes beautiful spaghetti noodles.

In this recipe I use the spaghetti raw, but you could also fry them for a little while in some oil and some spices to get a warm dish.

To make the pasta more satisfying and add more protein I added some cashew nuts to the pesto.
After I took this picture I added some black olives and that was a great combination.

If you don’t have a spiralizer you could also use a julienne peeler like this one…

julienne peeler

Recipe (US measurements)
1 zucchini
1/4 cup cashew nuts (Preferably soaked in water over night. It is optional, but it makes them more nutritious. Read more.)
3/4 cup pesto
3/4 cup Rucola (this is optional but it adds a very nice flavor and lots of extra vitamins)
Cherry tomatoes
Olives

Directions

  1. If you have soaked your cashews – rinse them and put them in a blender
  2. Mix until it becomes like a smooth butter.
  3. Add the pesto and rucola and mix again.
  4. Make the zucchini “pasta” using a spiralizer.
  5. Put the pasta on a plate together with some rucola.
  6. Add the pesto, olives and cherry tomatoes.

Serve and enjoy!
