Overt Fat Free Raw Vegan Pesto Pasta!

Movie available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oy220eHHL7I

Check out my new video: “Overt Fat Free Raw Vegan Pesto Pasta!”

In this video I’ll show you how to make one of my favorite low fat raw vegan “pastas” and a delicious overt fat free pesto sauce!


Although this pasta doesn’t have any overt-fat in it, it is actually extremely high in Omega 3s, which are an extremely healthy essential fatty acid. Spinach and other leafy greens are a great source of Omega 3s.

Note: this is not enough calories for a full meal! Make sure you also have some delicious bananas or mangoes along with this meal, or eat more at another meal to compensate. My meals typically consist of one, two, or three of my favorite fruits. For example, last night I had 12 bananas, an entire pineapple, and a mango for dinner. It’s really important to eat enough fruits and vegetables if you want to be able to stick with a healthy diet! Otherwise you will get too hungry and be tempted by foods you do not want to have in your diet.

I know all of you love fruit and can eat your fruit, but people sometimes have a harder time finding vegetable recipes that they love, and so that’s why I’m sharing this recipe with you. It’s a great way to get your greens in!

- 6 leaves of fresh basil
- 2 lemons
- 4 large cucumbers
- 2 bags of baby spinach

- A Spiralizer (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007Y9WHQ/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=terisblo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0007Y9WHQ)
- A high-power blender that can handle greens. I recommend a Blendtec or a Vitamix: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GIGZXM/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=terisblo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000GIGZXM, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004VMAC8I/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=terisblo-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B004VMAC8I.

- Wash your cucumbers. Slice them in half and cut off the ends so they are flat. This will make spiralizing them easier.
- Blend together your spinach, lemon, and basil. Start with a little spinach, then once that is blended nicely, add more to thicken the sauce. If you need to add water to get your spinach to blend, add as little as possible to keep the sauce thick.
- Pour your pesto over your cucumber noodles, and enjoy!

*Optional Variations:
- Zucchinis and yellow squash also work great as noodles for this dish. If you would like to add even more color to the dish, you can spiralize some carrots or beets as well!

LOL! I just now watched your banana ice cream video :)

That sounds like a good spread, I hope you guys have a wonderful time!

thanks chris and marina! I'm making this on Sunday with my family - we are going to try it a little differently with a sauce made of basil, zucchini, spinach, and lemon :). and of course we are having banana ice cream for dessert!

Comment by Chris P. on June 16, 2012 at 7:35pm

Cool! I look forward to trying this :)

I tried your recipe and frankly, I didn't like it at all! But I wanted to point out the beauty of many of the raw recipes around. I added three bananas and some apple juice and raspberry juice (I only made a smaller sample portion of spaghetti and pesto), dumped it all in the blender and voila! This actually turned out to be the best smoothie I have EVER had! A raw recipe can almost always be turned into a smoothie if you don't like the first result :)

I really love this recipe, cannot wait to make my next spagetthi's.

In do not like suqash in a raw state i have to say, i don't know how you guys/grils handle it but im not a real fan of it.

Yes I know that! And I try and try to eat so much at a time, but I always have to have a break before I can go on eating... Well, patience...

Annica I had mine with Tomatoe-Basil soup from Dr. G's 80/10/10 book.  I made 1/4th the amount and was too full to finish it.  But we are supposed to eat this much actually.  Remember this program is the opposite to what we've been brainwashed to believe.  Calorie restriction is taboo.  Our stomachs will stretch.

I ate all of this and A LOT of fruit (bananas/mangoes) for dinner after this video... so it's just for one for me
