Spaghetti That RAWKS!!


The first time I discovered raw cuisine, I was in Thailand. And the first dish I tried was at a raw cafe, and it was spaghetti & "meat"balls. While I didn't get creative with the "meat" balls, I did want to try making spaghetti. It used to be my favourite meal, but I always feel hungry after pasta, even if I eat too much of it. Anyhoo, this was a filling meal, and I was pretty much able to get right up and dance after :) With little prep work, it's a fantastic lunch or dinner. While I was kinda hoping the sauce would look a little more red, I'm not sorry that I put green veggies in it. It tasted so incredible with everything in it.

Ingredients:
1 medium zuchinni, sliced with potato peeler into long, spaghetti-like strands
Sauce:
1/2 medium tomato, chopped
1/4 cup chopped zuchinni (from what didn't peel well)
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup mixed baby greens
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tablespoon juice from a lemon
1/2 a date, chopped. Eat the other half :)
2 teaspoons sundried tomatoes, chopped
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon Victorian Epicure Roasted Red Pepper Dip Mix (dried herbs, red bell pepper, spices, garlic, onion)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Directions:
1) Toss all ingredients into a small blender (LOVE my Magic Bullet <3)
2) Pour sauce onto zuchinni "pasta" strands. Love every bite :)
