(mostly) raw “pasta” with detox pesto

March 16, 2012

decided to try a raw dinner.

jeremy’s raw beet salad
raw “pasta” with pesto
raw brownies
raw pudding

raw “pasta”

use a veggie peeler to reduce zucchini and summer squash down to tiny slivers. cut with a paring knife into thin, spaghetti-like strips.

raw “pasta” sauce – a detox pesto

toss into a food processor:
an avocado
parsley (tons)
cilantro (tons)
basil
lemon juice
tahini
miso (celiacs houseguest + our miso uses barley; we used tamari instead)
sweet bell pepper
raw garlic
ginger
soaked cashews (raw foodies do this for texture. i felt pretty weird about wetting cashews, but the sauce did have a smoothness to it.)
2 dates
any oil; i used walnut
a few drops of fish sauce (not raw!)

i also tossed in part of a carrot.
