Raw Zucchini Fettuccine with Creamy Walnut Dijon Sauce
As many of you know last week I did an ALL RAW WEEK. It was great! Eventho I started eating non-raw again I intend to stick with a high raw or a high raw food intake from now on. So you will still see Vegan Dishes here but you will also see MORE Raw Vegan Dishes, too!
First up...from a few days ago...Raw Zucchini Fettuccine with Creamy Walnut Dijon Sauce!
Yes! I dug out my Spiralizer and used it on this! I went for the thickest blade. Here's the recipe I used on this sauce...
1/2 C Walnuts
1 C Water (maybe more)
2 T Nutritional Yeast
2 T Lemon Juice
1 T Dijon Mustard
2 Cloves Garlic
Turmeric for color - as needed
Cayenne for color and kick - as needed
This was awesomely flavorful when I ate it and I did eat a LOT of it...perhaps a bit too much, actually.
Last week I mentioned a few things I was excited about on the way I was feeling from my all raw week but I must tell you about some additional findings once going back to NOT raw. I think this is the biggest thing to mention...how you feel after you switch back. Well, it wasn't great. I really only ate some "popped" corn chips and I will tell you that my tongue felt RAW for 2+ days. I wasn't happy about that. It really hurt. I will never eat THOSE 'popped chips' again. Also the next day my tummy was gurgling oddly for most of the day. I didn't think I ate that much that was 'off the charts' but perhaps I did. Or maybe it was my body telling me that I really preferred the raw instead of the NOT raw. Regardless I will be eating a lot more raw from now on.
