I have just received new products from Raw Blend. They sent me a Spirooli vegetable slicer and a Vitamix blender to try, and I used those to make these wonderful kid-friendly meals:

Natural Naughties Raw Pasta

Ingredients:
Pasta
2 large zucchinis, washed

Marinara Sauce
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, soaked until soft
1 cup basil
2 cloves fresh garlic
juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup soaked nuts

Directions:
For Zucchini pasta:
  1. Zucchini should be washed and sliced into pasta length strands. If you have a Spiroli, use this, as it makes for great presentation.

For Marinara Sauce: 
  1. Combine all ingredients except for nuts in food processor. Blitz well. Add nuts finally and blitz quickly, so they retain their crunch.
  2. Serve over veggie pasta. If you prefer, you can lightly steam the pasta. 
Tips:
  • For more protein, try adding some lean cooked mince meat to the dish. 

Natural Naughties Macadamia Cheese

Ingredients:
2 cups soaked macadamias
1 clove fresh garlic
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp ground turmeric
a pinch of Himalayan salt
a pinch of pepper

Directions:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a Vitamix. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. For a smoother texture, simply add more water and re-blend.
Serves 6
