Instructions

This is one of my favourite summertime dishes with a new Winter twist. Usually, we make a fresh tomato salsa with tomato and basil. But in this recipe, we sauté a creamy sauce made from tomatoes, spring onions, almond butter and fine spices. Conjuring up a wonderfully fresh and pleasantly light pasta dish.

You will need a spiral cutting machine to make the zucchini spaghetti but there are plenty of products available. We have selected one for you at the end of this article that we think represents value for money.

Step 1

Prepare the ingredients.

Step 2

Then heat a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and steam the white spring onion rings for 2 minutes.
Then add the garlic and 1 tablespoon of tomato paste and sauté briefly.

Step 3

With 300 ml vegetable deglaze the diced tomatoes, 2 teaspoons Yaconsirup, 1 teaspoon tamari and 1 pinch of vanilla.
Stir and bring to a boil.

Step 4

Season with salt and pepper, reduce the heat and simmer for approx. 10 minutes.

Step 5

Then stir in 2 tablespoons of almond butter, 1 tablespoon of fine yeast flakes and 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
Then add the cherry tomatoes, green spring onion rings and 3 tablespoons of basil to the sauce, heat slightly and season with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in another pan and fry the zucchini spaghetti for approx. 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Step 7

Arrange the zucchini spaghetti with the tomato sauce and serve.

Tip: enjoy with some Parmesan (vegan or not).

The colonic was one of the best experience I’ve ever had. Ela was absolutely fantastic. She is very gentle and really professional. I was feeling at ease knowing I was in perfect hands at that time. Later on I was given some good advice about a liver cleanse.
