Raw Vegan “CHEESY” Noodles

 

Raw Vegan CHEESY noodles

 

Last year we went to a restaurant in Playa Del Carmen called “La Senda“.  I had some delicious “cheesy” noodles made out of camote (sweet potatoes).  It was very filling and healthy.  Lately, I have been craving it.  So, I decided to experiment and try to replicate their “cheesy” noodles.  It turned out pretty good!  Both my daughter and I stuffed our faces!  :)

Note:  you will need a spiralizer for this one.  

Ingredients for “noodles”:

  • 2 medium-sized peeled and spiralized raw sweet potatoes

Ingredients for “cheesy” sauce:

  • 1 cup of raw cashews
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 6 tablespoons of nutritional yeast
  • salt to taste

Directions for sauce:  throw all of the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

Note: I added some cilantro from my garden to top it off.  You can also use raw basil or just leave it plain.

Enjoy!

 

Benefits of sweet potatoes: vitamin B6, Vitamin C, iron, Vitamin D, magnesium, potassium, fiber, and more.

Benefits of this “cheesy” sauce: 50-60 grams of protein, lots of b12, calcium, and more.
