Ingredients

For the Noodles:

  • 1 Carrot
  • 1 Bell Pepper
  • 1 Zucchini

For the Nut Balls

  • 1/4 c raw almonds
  • 1/4 c raw walnuts
  • Cumin, coriander, turmeric, cayenne, etc. and other spices
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt & pepper

For the Sauce

  • 1 Tomato
  • Basil, oregano, other spices
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes (not in oil)
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 1/2 c mushrooms

Instructions

For the Noodles

  1. Noodles: Slice all the veggies very thin on a mandolin (or by hand), into noodles. Sprinkle on a little olive oil and sea salt and set aside.

For the Nut Balls

  1. In food processor, pulse almonds, walnuts, and garlic until they're in a very rough flour-like consistency. Add the spices of your choice and sea salt (cumin makes a big difference... it makes it taste like taco meat!) Then add olive oil until the mixture is crumbly, but sticks together when you shape it.
  2. Shape it all into nut balls and refrigerate for an hour or so. Or you can dehydrate them for 2-4 hours.

For the Sauce

  1. Pulse the tomato, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, sea salt, and your choice of spices in a blender until it's like a thick sauce. Add olive oil until you get the consistency you want.

Assembly

  1. Pour sauce onto noodles and mix well, until all are coated. Serve with the nut balls. Enjoy!
