Zucchini Noodles and Spaghetti Sauce

I cannot seem to get enough of zucchini noodles.

Today I had zucchini noodles and sauce.

Here is the recipe:  I made the sauce in the Vitamix.  I made just a few changes from the “Fresh Tomato Sauce” recipe in the Vitamix Whole Food Recipes Book. This recipe is for one serving.

Step 1.  Place the following ingredients into the Vitamix:

  • 3 Roma tomatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 small red onion
  • 1/2 small carrot
  • 1 TBS tomato paste
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp RAW honey
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper
  • dash of smoked paprika (to spice it up a bit, optional)
Step 2.  Process on high speed for about 3 minutes.
Step 3.  Pour into saucepan ans simmer for 30 – 40 minutes.
Step 4. When sauce is just about done, use Spiralizer to make noodles using 2 small to medium size zucchinis.
Step 5.  Pour sauce over noodles and add fresh basil and parsley.

It was a good serving size.  It looked like a lot, but it tasted so good that I finished the plate and found the serving size to be just right.

Mango Salsa

This salsa is the same recipe using the same ingredients for any salsa you might make. The only difference is the proportions.  Specifically because I wanted to call this “Mango Salsa” there is more mango in this salsa than tomatoes.  So, chop the following ingredients and add them in whatever proportions you like best.
  • Mango
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Red onion
  • Green onion
  • Cilantro
  • Lime Juice
  • Lemon Juice (1/2 of amount of lime juice used)
  • Jalapeno
I served this on top of a bed of lettuce.  The other part of the meal was black beans and rice (for family members not on the SCD diet).
