Raw Zucchini Spiral Spaghetti with Fresh Basil Pesto

This is an extremely easy recipe to make.

I make it often for a quick lunch or when I want a light supper.

Don’t let the word raw turn you off. I read your mind again…

You must keep an open mind and try it. I promise you will be surprised. It’s light, fresh and tasty. You won’t believe you are eating vegetables and a raw vegan meal.

You could add cheese, if you feel you just need a little extra something although it won’t be vegan anymore. Or to convince hubby to eat it.

 

Ingredients:

2 zucchinis, washed, top and bottom removed

1/3 c. fresh basil leaves, plus extra for garnish if you want

1/3 c. pine nuts

1/2 lemon, squeezed

1/3 c. extra virgin olive oil (the best quality you can find)

pinch of sea salt

pinch of freshly ground black pepper

10 cherry tomatoes, halved

1/3 c. sun dried tomatoes, diced

1/3 c. almond slivers, toasted

 

Instructions:

Using a spiral cutter, cut the zucchini and place in a bowl.

Chop tomatoes and sun dried tomatoes and add to bowl.

In a blender, blend the basil leaves, lemon juice, pine nuts and olive oil until it becomes a sauce. Pour over zucchini, cherry tomatoes and sun dried tomatoes. Mix well.

Toast the almond slivers in a pan. Sprinkle on top. Garnish with fresh basil.
