Some Recipes

Three raw dishes I’ve made in the last month that are worth sharing:

1) Spinach Basil Pesto Noodles
-2 1/2 cups packed spinach
-3/4 cup fresh basil leaves
-1/3 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped
-3 T lemon juice
-2-3 T water
-3 T olive oil
-1 T nutritional yeast
-1 large clove garlic
-1/2 teaspoon Celtic salt
-cherry tomatoes halved
-1-2 zucchini
Blend everything (except cherry tomatoes and zucchini) in food processor. Put the zucchini in a spiralizer to make the noodles. Squeeze the noodles between a towel or a few paper towels to get out the extra water. Put in bowl and toss the pesto and tomatoes onto noodles. This was so good that I made it twice this month…but the second time I made it I accidentally bought cucumber instead of zucchini; I was worried it wouldn’t turn out as good but it was just as yummy!

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp raw vanilla powder (I used vanilla extract)
