One of my favorite discoveries of the week was raw marinara sauce. It tasted almost identical to traditional marinara sauce, but like so many things raw, it literally just took the push of a button on the food processor and the sauce was ready to go in seconds! I also snuck in a few extra ingredients, like a red bell pepper, a carrot, and lots of fresh basil. And if you’re feeling fancy, you can also throw in some sun-dried tomatoes. But overall, I was completely in love with this raw marinara sauce. Look forward to making it again soon even after I’ve returned to my old “cooked” ways.
For those looking for a pasta alternative, this raw shaved zucchini “pasta” was also super simple and took about one minute to make. It paired perfectly with the marinara, and even looked extra lovely too.
Definitely a winner of a raw recipe! But even if you’re not going all out with the raw diet, it’s a fabulous fresh and easy meal that you can have on the table in minutes. And it is of course gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, vegan and vegetarian as well. :)
