Pasta Recipe #1: Raw Alfredo

When you’re deep in a cleanse and dreaming of decadence, spiralized zucchini descends like an angel dispatched from on high! Hydrating and so much more forgiving on the waistline than conventional pasta, raw veggie noodles go down a treat with this rich creamy sunflower sauce.

This righteous raw rendition is so celestially good, you may never weep for wheat again. And speaking of things in the higher spheres, whoever discovered that nutritional yeast and miso replicate cheeze in raw dishes should be up for sainthood!

Sauce Ingredients

  • 3⁄4 cup filtered water
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup raw sunflower seeds 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons white miso paste
  • 1 teaspoon nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • Pinch of freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)

Vegetable Ingredients

  • 2 medium zucchinis, spiralized
  • 2 cups finely chopped broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions (white and green parts)
  • Celtic sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Serves: 2

Directions

1
To make the alfredo, throw the sauce ingredients into your blender and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds until well combined. Set aside.
 
 
2
To make the noodles, cut off the end of one of the zucchinis, and using a spiralizer turn one zucchini into noodles. Alternatively, shave the zucchini into flat noodles with a vegetable peeler.
 
 
3
In a bowl, toss half of the sauce through the one batch of zucchini noodles with 1 cup of the broccoli, 1 tablespoon of the parsley, and
1 tablespoon of the green onions. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer the remaining alfredo and the remaining zucchini, broccoli, parsley, and green onions into two separate sealed containers and store in the fridge. When ready to serve the second portion, spiralize the second zucchini into noodles, and toss with the alfredo sauce and remaining broccoli, green onions, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
