How To Make Raw Pasta Sauce

There have been a couple of stand out new dishes that have delighted us this summer and this is one of them. IMG_20150122_195008253 (Small)

Easy. Tasty. And full of fresh readily available nutrients.

The good thing about raw foods is they’re loaded with water, which fills you up. It never ceases to amaze me how satisfying they can be.

First up. Cover the sun dried tomatoes in water and soak for a couple of hours. Avoid the ones packaged in oil. (You can always rinse the oil off for a cleaner meal.)

You will need:

1.5 cups sun-dried tomatoes, soaked in just enough water to cover
4 cups fresh tomatoes
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp apple or maple syrup
Green olives ~ half cup
Black olives (I like loads of both)
1 cup fresh basil
1 Tbl tamari

Blend:

1.5 cups sun-dried tomatoes & soak waterpasta marinara (Small)
2 cups fresh tomatoes
Garlic
Apple syrup

Pour into a large bowl and add:

Rest of fresh tomatoes, chopped
Green olives, sliced
Black olives whole
Basil, sliced
Tamari.

Gently stir in zucchini noodles.
