Raw Carrot Noodles with Ginger-Lime Almond Butter Sauce

Use new Natural Zing spiralizers to make this unique twist on an old favorite!

For the Carrot Pasta:
  • 5 large carrots, peeled and spiraled into noodles
  • 1/3 cup cashews
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
For the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce:
Instructions:To Prepare the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce:
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix together until smooth and creamy.
To Prepare the Carrot Pasta:
Wash carrots well, peel them, and pat them dry.
Using your spiral slicer, make noodles out of all of the carrots. It will be more difficult to make the noodles once there is only a few inches of carrot left, so you can grate what’s left of the carrot.
Place all carrot noodles into a large serving bowl. Pour the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce over the noodles and gently toss together (You can use your hands for this part...).

Raw Soaked Split Pea Soup

This is a yummy, hearty soup that's quick and easy. The longest part is sprouting the peas, but aside from that it's quick and easy. Adapted from Raw: The Uncook Book by Juliano - which is also available on our website.

  • 1 1/2 cups soaked split green peas (can substitute lentils here or any legume you prefer)
  • 1 1/2 cups water or almond milk
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped tomato - (use fresh or our sun-dried tomatoes work great too!)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 Tbsp. nama shoyu
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh chopped dill
  • A few dashes of paprika
