Raw Pesto & Noodles

This is by far my favorite raw recipe. Although its not raw, I often will add cooked mushrooms on top because I love the flavor.

Here’s the recipe:
2 1/2 cups spinach
3/4 cups basil leaves
1/4 -1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
1 tsp Olive oil (this is optional)
2-3 tbsp water
Juice from 1 lemon
1 garlic clove
3 tbsp of any raw seed or nut

Blend all ingredient in a food processor or quality blender to the consistency you like. Pour on top of raw noodle of your choice- zucchini, daikon, carrots, or jicama. I particularly like daikon because it’s more porous and absorbs the pesto flavor. Cherry tomatoes are great as a topping too.
