creamy zucchini pasta & avocado soup

this was really delicious. you should make it very soon and enjoy the incredible flavours that come from the mixture of avocado, zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, garlic and love. i don't think more introduction is required here.

zucchini pasta with garlic avocado sauce: serves 1-2

2 zucchinis sliced on the mandoline or spiral slicer into noodles
1/2 avocado 
2 peeled garlic cloves
1/2 onion
salt & pepper, to taste
2 cups non-dairy milk
handful pine nuts or cashews
1/4 cup tamari
handful basil leaves
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/2 cup cauliflower

put noodles into large bowl and set aside. blend all other ingredients together until smooth. taste it. it'll probably be a little bland but i left it that way so you could add things to your liking. some curry powder might be nice. i add that to everything though... :) pour the sauce all over the noodles - BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE SOME LEFT OVER! set it aside and massage the sauce into the noodles with your hands.... mmm, sensual food time. get dirty. i suggest adding some salty veggies to the noodles now. i put on some mushrooms and tomatoes.


avocado, cauliflower & spinach soup: serves 4-6

now using the rest of the extra sauce from the noodles, add:
1/2 avocado
2 garlic cloves
1/2 onion
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1/4 cup tamari
1 cup non-dairy milk (more or less) - or use hot water to make the soup warm
salt & pepper to taste
handful spinach
5 olives

i think that's all i threw in there! it was an improv situation as usual. taste it and see what you wanna add or change. serve in bowls with hemp seeds, basil leaves and maybe some olives or something with saltiness/flavour. pickled artichokes would be nice.

Mushrooms are magic.

I was very excited about this pasta recipe and I LOVE avocados but unfortunately, I'm allergic :(

Is there something I could use in place of the avocado?

Emily von Euw said...

Hmm... some cashews? And use less liquid.

what happens if i leave out the nutritional yeast in both these recipes, or most of the recipes its listed in? is it mainly for taste or is it mandatory to create a specific texture? thankyou!

Emily von Euw said...

@Anonymous - it's just for flavour, just add a little less liquid and you're good ;)

When you say raw, does this mean all the ingredients are uncooked? These meals look ridiculously delicious, are they possible to make but cooked? So cooking the noodles/pasta and the vegetables, or heating the soup, or would they not taste to the same effect? Ellie xx
