zuke pasta with tahini sauce & other goodness


I used basically the same recipe for the sauce that I made for my raw sushi recipe. It is so TASTY. This creamy, filling meal will leave you satisfied and full of energy. I could eat like 3 bowls of this - oh and guess what, I can! Ah, life is good. Enjoy!


zucchini pasta with tahini sauce, olives, cilantro & avocado: serves one or two

Pasta:
2 zucchinis
1/2 avocado
handful of olives
1 tablespoon hemp seeds
1/2 cup cilantro
1/4 cup sprouts

Tahini sauce:
2 tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon miso
2 tablespoons peeled ginger root
1 tablespoon tamari
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1/8 cup water (more or less)


To make the sauce: blend all ingredients until smooth and creamy, adding liquid as needed. Set aside.

To make the pasta: slice your zukes on a spiral slicer or mandolin. Put in a bowl and pour your sauce on, rubbing it in with your hands or two spoons, until every noodle is covered. Cut up your avocado and throw it on along with the other toppings. Let it all sit for a minute to marinate then dig in!

    1. Hey there, I use a Spirooli :) It's great! You could also just buy a mandolin, but they make flat noodles.

    Oh holy droolbuckets....Oddly enough, I find looking at your blog inspires me to stay more on-track with my juice fast than tempting me to stray. Thank you for your loosey-goosey approach...I've never been a 'by the book' cook, and your encouragement to play in the kitchen is appreciated :-)

      Very much looking forward to breaking my fast with some delicious zuke pasta...now I just have to decide which of your recipes...they all look SO delish!

  9. Mm...this was sooo yummy and reminded me of pad thai with a twist! My only "issue" was that when I added the sauce, everything got very watery. I'm super new to doing raw noodles so I'm not sure if this is "normal" and if there's a way I can prevent that from happening. Thoughts?

    Thanks!

    1. Hmm okay next time, make your sauce is very thick. The zucchini noodles release moisture so they will water down any sauce you put them with. :)
