Zucchini Noodles with Cashew, Lemon, Basil Sauce
3-5 small zucchini
1 cup cashews (soaked 4-6 hrs)
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (soaked 6-8 hrs)
4 small lemons juiced
Small zucchini chopped
4 cloves garlic
2 Tablespoons nutritional yeast
Salt to taste
1/2 cup fresh basil (or more)
Use a spiralizer to make noodles from zucchini. (This is s small hand-held spiralizer that I bought at a local health food store for about $10. I just twist the zucchini into it).
Rinse and drain the soaked cashews and sunflower seeds. Blends with lemon juice, zucchini, garlic, and nutritional yeast. Add a little water if too thin. Add basil and salt to taste.
Add the sauce to the zucchini noodles and mix well. Let it sit a bit to soften the noodles.
Top with peas, fresh basil, red pepper flakes, green onions, or marinated mushrooms (or a combination).
Slice mushrooms and add to a bowl. Mix a marinate of 1/2 lemon or lime juice and 1/2 Bragg Aminos. (You can also just use the Bragg aminos or the Bragg Aminos with a little olive oil. I’m trying to not use oils and I like the punch of the lime. If it’s too tangy for your taste use orange juice.) Let them marinate while you prepare your meal.
