Inspired by a recipe I found on Heather Pace’s blog, Sweetly Raw, this week I made one of her ‘Oodles of Raw Noodles’ recipes; my version expanded upon her recipe to make it my own. I had been thinking about making this and the other noodle recipes for some time, and boy am I glad I didn’t wait any longer! This is a recipe that pleases, especially those who love creamy, cheesy, comfort dishes – like I do!
1 1/2 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup spring water
1/4 – 1/3 cup lemon juice
drizzle of olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 cloves garlic
few springs of fresh parsley
sprinkle of organic white stevia powder or 1 drop organic stevia
Blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy and toss with zucchini or kelp noodles.
Sprinkle with Spirulina to easily add Superfoods to your daily cuisine. Spirulina lends to a cheesy flavor, that’s green 😉
I turned a bunch of zucchini into spiral noodles using a spiralizer to create a dish with more depth. I’ve found kelp noodles are very tasty on their own and it’s really the sauce that makes a recipe when using them. You could try a mix of the two for variation! Add chopped kale, broccoli florettes, onion, and other green leafys for even more nutrition.
I made 2 batches of this recipe; 1 for friends who wanted it dairy free, and another for friends who wanted raw goat’s cheese added to the cream sauce. They both turned out spectacular and were a hit!
