Simple Raw Pasta with Pesto

Updated: Mar 19, 2023

My lunch today was super simple and super delicious!

Ingredients:

Choose organic wherever possible.


For the pesto: 2 cloves Garlic or more to taste or none 1 bunch Cilantro ½ cup Hemp seeds ½ Lemon, squeezed ½ tsp Sea salt Water as needed Olive oil as desired

1 zucchini (courgette) Handful of grape tomatoes, sliced Several raw olives


Procedure:

In a food processor, buzz the garlic into small pieces

  1. Add cilantro, lemon and sea salt; buzz into small pieces

  2. Add water and olive oil to desired consistency

  3. Use a special tool to turn the zucchini into pasta (a spiralizer is a great tool-easy to find online- I bought a spirelli ) or use your potato peeler or julienne slicer to make thin slices and then cut those into strips.

  4. Toss the zucchini with your desired amount of pesto, add the grape tomatoes and the olives.

Adventurous Variations: -use parsley or basil instead of cilantro -use soaked pumpkin seeds instead of hemp -zucchini can easily be replaced with yams or carrots -toss with other vegetables that you like, such as spinach, red onion, small pieces of broccoli, etc.
