If you’ve ever wanted to dip your toe into the “raw food” movement, this is the perfect recipe to dive into. Simple but full of amazing flavor, you won’t even notice that there’s really no actual pasta in the dish. Talk about taking the plain old salad to a whole new level!

Prep: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
  • 2 large
  • 1 cup
    sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 clove
  • 1 cup
    coarsely chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup
  • 1/2 cup
    cucumber, grated
  • 3 tablespoons
    hemp oil, can substitute with olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon
    balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    sea salt, to taste
  1. Soak the sun-dried tomatoes for 20 minutes in the water. While they're soaking, shave the zucchini with a vegetable peeler to make "noodles."  
  2. Once the sun-dried tomatoes have soaked, place them along with the remaining ingredients (except the zucchini) in a food processor. Process until desired consistency is reached.
  3. Toss the sauce with the zucchini and serve.

For a thicker sauce, simply use a little less water. 

If you aren't into raw, you can sauté the zucchini with a little coconut oil over medium heat for a few minutes. Or, you can heat the sauce over low heat for a few minutes.
