Introduction

To make the noodles with an ordinary knife, do this. Lay the zucchini down flat on a cutting board. Make a number of long parallel slits in the zucchini, lengthwise, but not slicing all the way through. Then hold the zucchini upright and cut a thin strip from top to bottom. You should get a number of long zucchini “strands.” Repeat.

The basic idea is to get the zucchini into a form that resembles long, thin “noodles.”

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 date
    2 tbsp. dried tomatoes
    ½ cup cherry tomatoes
    1 bunch fresh basil (about 8 leaves)
    2 tbsp. olive oil, extra-virgin cold-pressed
    ½ cup raw cashews
    ¼ avocado
    1-2 zucchinis (depending on size)

Directions

Sauce
Remove the pit from the date. Soak it and the dried tomatoes together in water. Slice cherry tomatoes into about 4 pieces each. Chop basil into semi-fine pieces. Smash or pound cashews into fine pieces. Slice dried tomatoes and date. In a bowl, mash cherry tomatoes, dried tomatoes, date, cashews, avocado, olive oil, and basil together well into a sauce-like texture. Set aside. (A blender or food processor can help with the sauce, but isn’t necessary.)

“Noodles”
Cut the bottom ends off the zucchini. There’s no need to peel the zucchini first. Use a wavy peeler to grate the zucchini lengthwise into fine, long spaghetti-like strips. Pour the sauce over the top of the “noodles” and enjoy
