  • Total Time: 30m

Ingredients

For the Noodles:

  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 zucchini, spiralized

For the Nut Balls

  • 1/4 c raw almonds
  • 1/4 c raw walnuts
  • 1/4 tsp. each cumin, turmeric, cayenne, paprika
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt & pepper

For the Sauce

  • 1 Tomato
  • 1/2 c mushrooms
  • 1/4 c fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. sun-dried tomatoes (not in oil)
  • Pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil (plus extra if necessary)

Instructions

For the Noodles

  1. Add all of the vegetables to a large bowl, mix, and set aside while you make the other components of the recipe.

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, basil, oregano, garlic, sun-dried tomatoes, and sea salt and pepper until you get a thick sauce. Add olive oil while blending 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!
