This week is going to be all about zucchini’s for me – I am collecting 2 – 3 zucchini’s from my garden every day! It is crazy seeing them piling up faster than I can eat them!
So good that they are from my garden – grown organically and are full of goodness – but whoaaa… they say you are what you eat and I am starting to think that I am going to turn into a zucchini and unfortunately for me I am eating the Ronde De Nice and not the long skinny variety – will I turn into a round rotund looking zucchini? 😀
Today, inspired by what is in my fridge, the garden, my cupboard and the various raw pasta dressings on the internet, I have created my own creamy pasta sauce… yes you guessed it… sauce to put on my zucchini pasta for dinner.
OK – I don’t actually have anything that can turn my round zucchini’s into anything that resembles pasta – so I have just grated my zucchini instead 😛 Not quite so pretty but the taste is all good!
1/2 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup raw macadamias
1/4 cup raw pine nuts
(OK that is my nut pantry cleaned right out! (except for a handful of raw almonds for my morning smoothie))
3/4 cup filtered water
1/3 cup lemon juice (why they need to be from USA when we have plenty in Australia – I do not know – note to self – grow own lemons)
drizzle of olive oil
Large handful of spinach leaves
1/2 tsp salt (Himalayan)
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
couple of sprigs fresh parsley
couple of sprigs fresh basil
Place all the ingredients in the blender and blend until creamy, green and smooth!
Serve on top of zucchini pasta or kelp noodles…. yummo!
I am going to add some cayenne or chilli flakes to mine.
