Zoodles In A Creamy Tahini Tomato Sauce

  3 rater(s)

One of the best entrees to eat on a raw diet is a zucchini noodle dish. Zoodles, as they are called, eat just like spaghetti, only with a little more crunch. If you let them sit in the sauce for 10 minutes or so, they actually soften and become easier to eat. If you prefer different textures, then don’t let them sit in the sauce for too long.

You don’t need magic to turn a zucchini into noodles; rather, you just need a good spiralizer. You don’t need to spend a fortune on one, but we recommend purchasing one that has a base with suction cups. That way, it can firmly adhere to the surface on which you spiralizer your veggies. One of these should be $20 or less. We just recommend that you do not purchase a handheld one because they can be difficult to use.

The tahini tomato sauce is creamy, slightly acidic, and garlicky. If you are not a fan of garlic, then you may want to omit the garlic, or just use half of a clove. The fresh lemon juice really wakes up the other flavors, while the tahini provides with subtle nuttiness. It’s almost like the tahini replaces a dash of nutmeg in a classic marinara.
