“Noodles” with Orange Tahini Dressing

IMG_3636

Another winner! Even the kids ate it! I will warn you though, it can be on the spicy side, so adjust Cayenne accordingly! This is Paleo, Vegan and packed full of nutrients!

Ingredients:

1 Zucchini Spiralized or Julienned

1 Carrot Spiralized or Julienned

1/4 Cup Raw Tahini

1/2 Cup Orange Juice

1/4 Cup Lemon Juice

5 or 6 Fresh Basil Leaves

Small Handful of Corinader Leaves

1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper

1 Tbs Poppy Seeds

1 Tbs Hemp Seeds Hulled

1/4 Avocado Sliced & Roughly Mashed

Directions:

1. Sprinkle the zucchini and carrot with some sea salt and leave it in a colander- the salt will draw out excess moisture and make the noodles tender and able to absorb new flavours

2. Leave for 10 to 15 minutes

3. In a blender, blend the tahini, orange and lemon juice, basil and coriander leaves

4. Add cayenne pepper and pulse again- adjust for taste – orange to sweeten, cayenne to spice.

5. Rinse the noodles very well, and squeeze out excess moisture with your hands

6.Gently toss the noodles though the sauce- you want to just coat the noodles-

7. Sprinkle with the hemp and poppy seeds, and top with avocado

Note: Above is the original recipe. I modified it by cooking the noodles. I heat oven to 200 degrees and place the noodles on paper towels to absorb the water. Cook for about 15-20 minutes. I find this helps keep the dish from being too watery. Plus, I like warm “pasta”!
