Directions
Zucchini Lasagna Noodles
  1. Peel the zucchini, and put it on the mandolin tools so that the zucchini will be sliced into long and thin stripes.
  2. Put the sliced zucchini in a bowl, and add in some salt and mix it a little bit. You can leave this overnight and then kind of dry them off in the morning, so that the salt can release a lot of liquid in the zucchini.

Raw Vegan Parmesan Cheese
  1. Put the soaked cashew nut into the a high speed blender.
  2. Add in the Irish moss pasta.
  3. Add in a squeeze of lemon, probably about a tablespoon.
  4. Add in the probiotics powder and the nutritional yeast.
  5. Add in a little water, a couple of nice turns of salt, and then turn the blender on until it runs really nice and smooth.
  6. The mixture is going to be a nice consistency and a bit runny.
  7. Line the strainer with a little piece of cheese cloth and a bowl underneath to hold the drippings.
  8. Pour the liquid into the strainer and let it drain out into the bowl. Leave it 24 hours just on the kitchen counter so it’s warm. And after that, refrigerate it and it will turn out to a beautiful cheese.
Pesto
  1. Put the garlic into the blender.
  2. Add in all of the nuts.
  3. Add in the salt.
  4. Crush those up a little bit.
  5. Add 2 cups of basil. Turn the blender again.
  6. While it is blending, add in 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  7. Put the pesto in the refrigerator.
Pasta Sauce
  1. Put the sun-dried tomatoes into the blender and turn the blender on.
  2. Add in 2 cups of fresh chopped tomato.
  3. Add in the 2 dates with the pits taken out.
  4. Add in the garlic.
  5. Add in all the herbs.
  6. Throw in a little bit of pepper flakes.
  7. Add in a teaspoon of tamari or nama shoyu or Braggs.
  8. Add in the salt and a little pepper.
  9. Turn on the blender but not to let the sauce to runny, make it a kind of chunky.
