Get ready for your second helping!  This is some SERIOUS guilt-free pasta.  yummm.. No wheat was harmed in the making of these noodles.  This is a simple & easy recipe to make that will satisfy either two hungry souls or could be shared between three folks.  This is a vegan recipe that is great shared amongst omnivorous friends.  My good friend, Shannon & I adapted this recipe and thus Thai Inspired Tahini Noodles were born.  <3

The recipe includes:

  •  Noodles (any kind reallly but I used Banza GF/made from chickpeas- a local Detroit company )
  •  3 small zucchini, julienned 
  •  3 small carrots, julienned
  •  1/2 cup crushed cashews

 

Dressing:

  •  Equal parts EVOO + water (4 TBS)
  •  Handful of cilantro
  •  Heaping scoop of almond butter
  •  1.5 TSP maple syrup
  •  1.5 TSP coconut aminos
  • 1 TBS tahini
  •  Juice of one lemon
  •  Couple cloves of garlic
  •  Dash of cayenne

Blend the dressing ingredients in your  Vitamix (or other high powered blender).   Mix with noodles and julienned veggies. Top with crushed cashews & green onion.  Mint to garnish.
