I rarely crave traditional pasta anymore and for good reason. This dense and delicious meal provides all the same satiety but with a lot less effort and processed carbs. It takes about 20 minutes to make from start to finish but makes your cells sing as it actually nourishes you. Also, it helps keep your digestion moving along and keeps your blood sugar levels steady (unlike the carbo-loading pasta most of us grew up on).
2 medium sized zucchinis
Simply peel the zucchini and make spaghetti using either a spiralizer, potato peeler or a julienne peeler. The possibilities are endless.
1 clove garlic, minced
one grind of the shaker of sea salt
one grind of the shaker black pepper
2 t maple syrup
3 t tamari
5 T tahini
1/2 t ground dried turmeric
1/4 cup water
Put all ingredients in a a high speed blender. Blend until a creamy then pour over your noodles. Gently massage the noodles a bit to help incorporate the sauce and also soften the noodles.
I like to have mine with cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, snap peas …. anything really!
