Zucchini Noodles! ZUCCHINI NOODLES!!!!

Most of the time is super sucks to be wheat intolerant.  I am still trying to cure myself as i really love me some pasta, bread, and the gravy from the fry place up the street (“Wheat no meat!”), but sometimes it forces me to get creative, like tonite!  I present to you….

Raw Zucchini Fettucini!

For the noodles you will need 4 zucchini’s and a spiral veggie slicer.  This thing is the bomb!  It makes all sorts of fun veggie slices, including long spirally noodles, curly fries, and more.  Plus it’s easy to use and to clean which is rad.  I got mine at Health on the Drive on Commercial.

After you have made your kick ass noodles (which literally takes about 5 minutes) you should have yourself a sword fight with the cores and make lots of dirty comments.

Next the sauce, from the class Josie and i took at the Raw Foundation Culinary Arts Institute:

3/4 Cups cashew pieces

3/4 cups pine nuts

2 tbs lemon juice (use real lemons and ream them with a reamer, which also gives you a chance to make dirty references galore)

2 cloves garlic

2 tsp Nama Shoyu (raw soya sauce, expensive but better for you than regular…i used Braggs tho, which is also awesome too)

2 tbs water

pinch black pepper

Put everything into a food processor and blend until you have a paste, then work into the noodles with your hands.  At this point try to be mature and rid yourself of previous dirty thoughts, instead think lovely happy thoughts and infuse this into the pasta through your hands.  Hippy dippy but what can it hurt?!?

    Hey hey hey ..loving your Zucchini noodles. They look amazing. I have a recipe but it tells you to cut them by hand. I figured life was waaaayyyyy too short for that.
    BTW what the hell is a reamer?

    I don’t have any more room in my fridge for things like raw soy sauce! Lovely presentation and I dig the picture of the zucchini cores propped up against the machine. Giggle worthy.
    How much was your spiral veggie slicer? Does it thinly slice things like a mandolin does as well?
