Making Raw Sushi and Raw Pasta Marinara

For all those craving a bit of a sushi feeling along the way of your raw food journey, here is the solution: Raw sushi…

No, there’s no uncooked rice involved ;-). You could make a raw “rice” by processing cauliflower or parsnip in your food processor (season with a little bit of almond butter, nama shoyu, pepper, lemon juice), but if your pressed for time or your tummy doesn’t feel so great about raw cauliflower/parsnip, then try the following…

You need:

Nori Sheets (raw or toasted, depending on your preference):

Spread a strip of white nori paste (somewhat sweet and super-tasty) on the nori sheet

Add your favourite ingredients

Roll up, slice and serve…

If you’re more the pasta type, here my latest creation: Pasta Marinara with Avocado-Basil “pesto”

For the pasta, spiralise (or julienne) 1 medium zucchini.

For the sauce:

Soak 8 sundried tomatoes in warm water (for about 15 min.), drain, rinse and put into a blender jug. Add 5 chopped, medium sized tomatoes, juice of 1/2 lemon, 1/2 avocado, 1/2 clove of garlic, freshly ground pepper and a pinch of Himalayan Sea salt. Blend and pour over the pasta.

For the pesto:

Blend 1 1/2 small (or 1 large) avocadoes with juice of 1/2 lemon, splash of tamari, handful of fresh basil leaves and 1/2 clove of garlic.

Place dollops of the pesto on top of the tomato sauce. Garnish with fresh basil and cherry tomatoes.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. That Pasta looks so yummy; makes me wish I had a spiraliser. =]

    • Hi Ken,

      if you can’t buy when where you are, try a julienne slicer. The strands won’t be as long, but at least you’re half-way there 🙂
