Raw Zucchini and Green Bell Pepper Noodles..
What I used (everything is eyeballed, so bear with me)
for the noodles:
half a medium sized zucchini, peeled and thinly sliced julienne-style (I should have done thinner, but I was hungry)
quarter of a green bell pepper, cored and thinly sliced julienne-style
for the sauce:
4 medium sized tomatoes - red and orange
quarter of a red bell pepper
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste
1 large clove of garlic
1 teaspoon olive oil
for the cheez:
2 tablespoons of a cup of raw pine nuts
quarter of a cup of raw cashews
1-2 teaspoons of nutritional yeast
1 tablespoon+ of water
dash sea salt
First I processed the sauce in my food processor and let sit about 30 minutes. Then I sliced the noodles and set aside. Next, I processed the cheez, - first the nuts with just enough water, to achieve my desired consistency, often scraping down the bowl, and then I added the oil, nooch and sea salt.
Lastly, I assemlbed my set up on my plate.
My first simple raw meal was quite refreshing. Sure, I'd like to make the noodles thinner, and ideally, longer, but this was a decent, pretty healthy start. My favorite part was the cheez, of course.
Just thought I'd share..
