How to make Zucchini Noodles aka Zoodles

Creamy Dreamy vegan Tuna with Zucchini Noodles and fresh Snow Flakes ❄ 🍜 😋🤌

Zoodles are a wonderful pasta substitute made from your favorite garden vegetable. They are nutrient-dense with almost zero carbs—and look at how simple they are to create!

Zoodles are zucchini that have been spiralized, and can therefore be used in the same way as pasta. The possibilities are endless with zucchini noodles plus, zucchini noodles are a fun way to increase the number of vegetables we eat, especially for children. The spiral forms are quite popular with kids (and they also enjoy using the spiralizer to make zucchini noodles!).

Zoodles are typically prepared using a gadget called a “spiralizer,” and there are a host of kitchen gadgets out there designed to get the job done, transforming your zucchini into noodle form in no time. Spiralizers create long noodles allowing you to spin them onto your fork.

The best thing about eating zucchini noodles is that you don’t feel ultra heavy after eating them like you would when you eat pasta. You will feel full – but satisfied. These noodles are perfect for lunch or dinner on those warmer days. It is light and refreshing. If you like the sound of these noodles, you’ll love my Ramen Noodle Soup with Kelp Noodles!

Plus, zoodles also have a subtle taste that makes them easy to mix with just about anything-including Lentil Kofta! Zucchini noodles are low calorie, low carb, and high in fiber. These are incredibly delicious and work in recipes or just tossed in olive oil, garlic, and salt and pepper as comfort food.

Plus, I’ll even give you one of my favorite recipes to make with them so you can get started ASAP! Check out this Tagliatelle Pasta alla Cashew Carbonara to make the perfect, healthy, quick, family meal.

One method of getting out of the way without putting more strain on the body is to replace highly processed foods with whole foods as much as possible. It’s a habit that needs to be cultivated on a daily basis.

Beetroot Burger Pattie Vegan

Savory Food | 10/06/2021 | By

If you are looking for a juicy burger pattie, you are on the right page with the right recipe! This Beetroot Burger Pattie is juicy, packed with protein, fiber, and so satisfying. Serve it as it is, as a burger or over salad for a low-carb lunch or dinner. 

Burgers are probably one of the most popular foods there is. Unfortunately, it is not the best for your health. This burger pattie is a healthy alternative and provides you with beautiful nutrients and vitamins. A meat-based burger comes with cholesterol and saturated fats, which you don’t want in your body. 

The color gives out the illusion that you are eating meat, but it is, of course, entirely plant-based. Did you know meat only tastes good because of three main components, smoke, fat, and spices? Without these three components, meat wouldn’t taste delicious. That means we can take these three components and make PattiesStroganoffKofta, and other meat alternatives altogether plant-based

It is all about trying out something new. Transitioning to a more conscious diet can be challenging, but I promise you all the effort and dedication will be worth it. Your body and mind will reward you in the most beautiful and surprising way. 

If you are just in the beginning of your plant-based journey my video about Mindset for Conscious Eating might be helpful. 

I hope this recipe serves you well. 

Sending love, as always. xx

Ramen Noodle Soup Vegan

If you strive to eat fully raw vegan but miss that umami savory mouthful taste of a ramen soup, this Shiitake Ramen Noodle Soup is the recipe for you.

It is savory, flavorful, with lots of exciting textures, and satisfying. This shiitake ramen noodle soup recipe will blow your loved one’s mind and can be prepared in only 10minutes. When I make this for my clients, they are absolutely in love with it and can’t believe how something uncooked can be so flavorful.

I use wet shirataki noodles for this recipe. Shirataki noodles are long, white noodles. Shirataki noodles (aka miracle noodles, konjac noodles, or konnyaku noodles) are popular in Asian cuisine. It’s made from the konjac plant, ground, and then shaped into noodles, fettuccini, or even rice. Shirataki noodles are almost zero calories.

“Shirataki” is Japanese for “white waterfall,” which describes the noodles’ translucent appearance. They won’t taste like actual ramen, but they make a fantastic ramen alternative. You can also combine shirataki with spiralized zucchini or cucumber for additional texture in your ramen. It’s something different and fun to explore!

Remember, a good cook is always learning. 



Zucchini Pasta with Raw Vegan Sunflower Seed Sauce

This quick and easy zucchini pasta with raw vegan sunflower seed sauce recipe is a must-try! The creamy seed-based sauce makes a filling low-carb and dairy-free meal. Suitable for raw vegan, nut-free, and paleo diet.

Raw sunflower seeds can be an excellent alternative to raw cashews in vegan recipes. Cashews are relatively high in carbohydrates, compared with most other nuts. Sunflower seeds are richer in protein and fiber and lower in carbohydrates than cashews. This beautiful seed is also packed with calcium and B vitamins to help you keep healthy bones and strong muscles! 

I have used fresh Tarragon in this recipe which just adds a fresh, spring taste and a bit of elegance to a variety of recipes.

This recipe calls for the sunflower seeds to be soaked in order to activate their beauties and makes the nutrients more bioavailable and possibly easier to digest. As a rule, add 2-3 times as much water as seeds but you can not use too much – the seeds will only absorb what they can regardless of what they have access to. But don’t short them or they won’t sprout well. You can soak them 8-12hours.

This recipe is fantastic because it’s nut-free, so it’s so great for those with allergies. It’s also dairy-free, gluten-free, and keto-friendly. And because sunflower seeds are so affordable it’s a new staple for me.

Let’s get down to the recipe! It’s so simple and requires minimal ingredients. The sauce is incredible! If I have some leftovers I eat them with raw crackers like a dip and it’s divine. Remember a good cook is always learning! Love always. xx
