Raw Vegetable Fettuccini Noodles with Creamy Red Pepper Sauce

Looking for something to do with all of those summer zucchinis? Try this! The ingredient list below is what I used for this dish. But you can use all zucchini if you like or a mixture of different vegetables for a colorful array of healthy plant pigments. Use what you like! It’s so fresh and light—perfect for lunch on a warm day. And for my nutritarian readers, this is a GREAT way to get your raw veggies for the day.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium zucchini
  • 3 medium carrots
  • 1 small daikon radish
  • red onion, thinly sliced (about 10 slices)

~ for the sauce

  • 1 cup raw pine nuts
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup water

Directions:

  1. Use a vegetable peeler to make your noodles. Simply peel lengthways to get a thin slice. My zucchini was kind of large, so I then cut the strips in half again lengthways to get the right size, similar to a fettucini noodle.
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Toss the noodles with the sauce and garnish with a few extra pine nuts, cherry tomatoes and some sprouts or micro greens. 
Serves 2. Enjoy!

Healthy trails,

    You've done it again Helyn! Another fabulous recipe and so, so easy! I made this for dinner the same day you emailed us. I did not have any pine nuts, couldn't find any locally that were not from China, so I used raw cashews instead. The sauce was delicious with the freshness of the red pepper, the hint of cheesiness from the nutritional yeast and the creaminess of the nuts. I have used zucchini when making raw veggie noodles before, but your use of daikon was genius! It added another layer of flavor and texture to the dish. This dish looks beautiful too and would be great to serve for a special occasion with dinner guests. Btw- Since it was just me, I only used half the veggies and sauce. Will have leftover sauce tonight on a new batch of noodles and it still tastes and looks great after a couple days in fridge. Nice that the sauce holds up well too.
