Raw Sweet & Spicy Sesame Noodles

pasta 1

I obviously have a thing for Zucchini Noodles. I would say my go to SAD comfort food would be Long Pasta, so having these as a raw and much more beneficial alternative has been amazing!!

I grew up eating Cold Sesame Noodles from Chinese Restaurants and still think about that sweet, nutty taste! So although I don’t want to eat that any more, it is nice to come up with something similar while keeping it all Raw. This sauce is not as sweet and nutty as the Chinese Restaurant sauce but it was really great!! I want to keep experimenting maybe with more sweeteners and almond butter next time.

Enjoy 🙂

Serves 3-4

  • 4 medium zucchini (peeled if NOT organic)

    by the way, my mom & dad also make vegetable noodles like your zucchini noodles by spiralizing white radishes, or daikon! you could try that sometimes – daikon is very good for you, too (smile).
