Introduction

Not completely raw, but almost (the peanut sauce is not raw, but could be made that way.) For as healthy as it is, this is SO good. Also, the secret to zuke pasta is lightly steaming the zuke and carrot strips until just warm - you should be able to comfortably touch with fingers. It keeps the zuke firm and doesn't allow it to release too much water. Not completely raw, but almost (the peanut sauce is not raw, but could be made that way.)
