I don’t think I have ever met anyone that didn’t love pasta. I love all pasta! I love the refined carb pasta that I rarely eat anymore because there are so many delicious, healthier alternatives, I love brown rice pasta, I love kelp noodles, and I love raw zucchini noodles, just to name a few.
Getting a spiralizer was the best addition I have made to my kitchen since getting my Vitamix four years ago. I went through a number of different spiralizers until finding this one – which is incredible!! So, for anyone wondering about spiralizers, get the paderno. It is SO easy to use and to clean and works perfectly every time! In fact, it is so simple and fast to use that this dish took me maybe 5 minutes. Imagine that! A yummy, creamy pasta dish in five minutes.
If you have not delved into the world of raw food yet, this is the perfect recipe to try. I love raw food because it tastes so clean and speaking of taste – you can actually taste all the ingredients in the food because everything is so fresh and there was no heating or processed ingredients to alter the taste.
This is my go to raw pasta dish. It really satisfies any pasta craving, but your body will be thanking you after, instead of wanting a nap!
- 1 large zucchini, peeled
- 1 avocado, divided
- 1/2 tomato, diced
- 2 – 3 T pine nuts
- 1 scallion chopped, green part only
- 2 T chopped parsley
- 1 t cider vinegar
- 1 t coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
- 3 pinches salt
- 2 pinches garlic powder
Spiralize the zucchini. I used the medium blade.
Place zucchini pasta in a bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl, mash half the avocado. Stir in 1 T water, salt, garlic powder, vinegar, and aminos. Combine well.
Pour over pasta and combine well with your hands. You can use a spoon, but it really works best with hands!
Add the scallion, parsley, tomato and the other half of the avocado, chopped.
Serves 2 for dinner or 3-4 as an appetizer.
