Hey guys welcome back and if its your first time here then welcome to my site! Thank you so much for watching this video. This recipe is a completely raw vegan dish and a much more nutritious alternative to traditional alfredo pasta! I haven’t always been a big fan of raw zucchini noodles so I was working on a recipe for a while that will not only mimic a spicy cajun alfredo pasta but to still keep it nutritious and tasting great at the same time. This recipe has been a hit in my family and I am so excited to be sharing it with you all and to hear what you think! Leave me a comment down below if you give this a try and what your experience was like.

- 2 large zucchinis peeled
- 2 cups raw cashews
- 1 cup raw pine nuts
- 4 artichoke hearts (approximately)
- 1 teaspoon fresh mined garlic (you can also use garlic powder)
- 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne seasoning (optional for spice–this amount is about mild/medium)
- pinch or two of dried oregano
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 small sweet yellow bell pepper
I used grape tomatoes and red bell pepper slices but feel free to use toppings of your choice.
It is best if you let it sit for about 15 minutes before serving to let the flavors marinate into the noodles.
You will need a spiralizer such as the one above or a hand-held one. You can find them on amazon, at cvs, Walgreens, and bed bath & beyond.
You can steam the noodles if you do not want to eat them raw for about a minute or two because they cook very easily.
If you are going to eat them raw I recommend getting organic zucchinis because of pesticides. I have gotten sick from eating raw (non organic) zucchini in the past.
Even organic may contain a small amount of pesticides, so I normally like to soak them (peeled) in vinegar and water for about 10-20 minutes before using them. This is optional but just a precaution since zucchinis contain one of the highest amount of pesticides out of most vegetables.
