Whether you are cleansing or not, it can be a healthy habit to adopt raw vegan recipes into your regular lifestyle. It’s possible to create an assortment of different dishes with raw vegan ingredients, from salads and snacks to entrees and desserts. In the case of this recipe, we toss raw zucchini noodles with a a raw tomato garlic sauce. The flavors are intense and leave your taste buds yearning for more long after you finish the meal.

To make zucchini noodles, you need a vegetable spiralizer. Although a handheld one will work for zucchini, it doesn’t spiralize other ingredients easily. For this reason, we recommend that you get spiralizer that has “feet” to remain stable on the counter. It’s very easy to use and is effective for numerous ingredients, including zucchini, carrots, sweet potatoes, and butternut squash. If you don’t want to purchase a spiralizer, you can turn zucchini into flat noodles by using a peeler. There is no wrong way to turn a zucchini into noodles; rather, the spiralizer just makes the process easier.

Zucchini noodles would not be enjoyable without an incredible sauce. Because they don’t exhibit a strong flavor profile, they can easily take on the flavors of whatever you toss them in. To make the sauce, simply add all of the ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. You can leave the blender running for a minute or two, or longer, so that the high revolutions naturally warm up the sauce. That’s a little raw vegan hack for all of our cleansers! After making the sauce, toss the zucchini noodles in it, plate, and enjoy!
