From what I hear(and what I am personally experiencing),people who stick to a raw diet will encourage you to keep your meals simple. I, of course, have been Pinning like a madwoman all of the incredibly beautiful raw foods that my brain cannot fully comprehend–seriously, there are some talented chefs out there! Once I get a dehydrator, I plan on becoming a crazy raw machine–making each and every recipe that I have saved thus far. Until then, I am stuck with these awesome Raw Cheesy Noodles:

Raw Cheezy Noodles - Fork & Beans

Raw Cheezy Lemon Herb Noodles Recipe

Makes 2-3 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • Kelp noodles

For the cheeze sauce:

  • 1 c. cashews (soaked for 2 hours)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lemon zest (reserve 1/2 tsp for garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp Nama Shoyu (or use GF soy sauce)
  • 1 Tb nutritional yeast
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tb parsley
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • 1 Tb water
  • pinch of salt
  • microgreens (to garnish)
  • chopped parsley (to garnish)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a high-speed blender, place all of the ingredients inside and blend until smooth and thick. If the sauce is still too thick, you can add more water or lemon juice; 1 tsp at a time.
  2. If you want your noodles to not be cold, place kelp noodles in a ziploc baggie, making sure it is completely sealed. Place in a warm water bath until the noodles have warmed up a bit (you might have to refresh the warm water).
  3. Combine noodles and sauce, stirring well. Garnish with parsley, microgreens, and lemon zest.
