Sweet Potato "pasta" With Tangy Marinara: a Raw Food R

Sweet Potato "pasta" With Tangy Marinara: a Raw Food R created by Jonathan Melendez

Sweet potato noodles are nothing more than finely shredded or spiralized raw sweet potato. It has the texture of shredded coconut and makes a good al dente noodle. You can also use a zester to create shorter pieces and use in place of rice. The tangy marinara in this recipe balances the starch present in the raw potato, leaving you with a taste of old-world Italy. Please visit my Web site for the complete article with photo and additional raw food recipes.

ingredients

directions

  • Place sun-dried tomatoes in warm water to start softening. Set aside. **Raw foodists take care not to use water hotter than 118 degrees.
  • Choose to peel the sweet potato or leave the skin on (I leave it on). Shred into lengthy strips using the small side of a standard shredder or spiralizer. Set aside.
  • Dry presoaked almonds (soak for 2-4 hours) with a paper towel. Place them in a blender or food processor and blend into a flour-like consistency. Add lemon juice, olive oil, and seasonings. Blend until mixed, adding a splash of water as necessary.
  • Chop Roma and sun-dried tomatoes and add to the sauce base. Blend into a thick, creamy marinara sauce.
  • Divide sweet potato noodles into two servings and top with tangy marinara sauce. Garnish with additional red pepper flakes if you wish.

    I can't handle raw vegetables, but my family likes shredded raw sweet potatoes with mayo or whipped cream and raisins and walnuts.

    I tried this recipe as one of my first after becoming a raw foodist. It was really good! I added some fresh garlic to the marinara. The sweet potato was sweeter than I thought it would be (raw). I used some leftover marinara to eat with carrots the next day. A keeper for sure!
