Zucchini Pasta Dish

I wouldn't call myself a raw foodie
but I am interested in and learning
how to make better choices in my eating.
Choices that will honor YHVH
and benefit my health, too. :o)

After doing some browsing online,
looking for non-cooking inspiration,
I came across a recipe for a spaghetti substitute...
all raw food... no cooking involved.

We tried it for supper tonight.
I thought it turned out to be pretty tasty,
though a little tarty, which can be remedied
with some natural sweetner or carrot
(I hope to add carrot next time).


Zucchini pasta with marinara sauce

Zucchini Pasta:

2 zucchini (I grated them for easy eating)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 TBS basil
1 TBS oregano

Mix basil and oregano with oil.
Combine oil mixture and zucchini, to marinade.

Marinara sauce:

1 pint grape tomatoes
1/4 cup water (to thin), optional
1/2 sweet onion
1 clove garlic
1/2 red bell pepper
1 TBS coconut oil
2 TBS olive oil
2 tsp basil
2 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt

Puree sauce ingredients in food processor or blender
(I used my Magic Bullet).
Let process/blend until creamy
or until your liked consistency.
Serve with zucchini pasta.

Sauce can be done a variety of ways,
to add more nutrients and more flavor,
all to your liking. :o)

Eat! Enjoy! Give thanks!

Hmmm, so it's not heated at all? I'm not sure about that. I'd be willing to give it a shot though. We enjoy a raw sweet potato salad. You can google that and come up with a variety of recipes. Yummo! Thanks for sharing. I'm going to have to go try it now that my curiosity is peeked ; ) Miss you friend! The no FB journey is going well.
