Raw Zucchini"pasta" with Green Pea Pesto & sun dried tomatoes

Raw zucchini pasta, made from strips of uncooked zucchini is wonderful dish that can be varied in many ways. I made a quick pesto/puré-sauce with green peas, basil, garlic, olive oil and goat cheese of a cream cheese type. Serve with sun dried tomatoes, olives or chicken or fish.

Make it a pure raw food dish by excluding goat cheese and add roasted sunflower seeds or mix soaked almonds withe peas.

  1. So glad that I came across your website! Really interesting and surprisingly simple recipes considering they’re so healthy which is the trouble with some – far too many ingredients to buy! Will definitely try this one…how would you suggest someone make the transition to a dairy free diet? Thanks Nilla
