Zucchini and carrot pasta topped with kale pesto RAW

November 22, 2014

If raw food is a new thing to you, you might think the word “pasta” here its pretty mistaken. The spaghetti is no real spaghetti. The parmesan is no real cheese. And what the heck has hemp to do with pasta? DO NOT WORRY I am telling you. This dish is nothing but legal and healthy!

It is completely RAW, wholesome, full of vitamins and enzymes. Because this “pasta”  is raw and light it will get you energized instead of draining your energy for looong and heavy digesting. After a huge portion of it you won’t get in the state of “food coma”, where your biggest wish is usually finding the next sofa to digest or directly fall asleep. Not gonna happen with this pasta!

Wholesome zucchini pasta with healthy kale pesto

The ingredients or this raw meal are julienned zucchini and carrots make for the noodles and hemp hearts get to act as parmesan. They have also the job to provide extra proteins. The only tools you will need to make this dish is a julienne peeler to make the spaghetti and a blender for the kale pesto. Pretty easy, no magic here.
