Raw Fettuccine Alfredo Recipe

I’ve had a few requests for this on Facebook, so I thought I’d post it here for a permanent link.

For the record, I am not a proponent of low carb diets. That is a discussion for another post. (But look at all the LONG TERM thought leaders for the low carb diets: what do they look like? Look at the LONG TERM high carb vegans: what do they look like? I’m just sayin’.)

Having said that, this meal is low carb. I eat it after I’ve gotten enough calories for the day, because it’s a pretty low calories meal.

Ingredients

Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup pine nuts
  • 2 chopped cloves of garlic (or less, to taste)
  • Salt (to taste, I try to keep low)
  • 1 small zucchini
  • Water
  • Optional: Basil, Oregano, Parsley,
  • chopped chives

Noodles:

  • Spiralized zucchini (2-3 medium)
  • Optional: jicama for crunchier noodles

Directions

In a blender, combine the chopped garlic, diced zucchini, pine nuts, salt, and seasoning. Pulse the blender and add water as needed to aid the blending. I like mine smooth and thick. After pulsing a bit, you should be able to blend.

Use a spiralizer to create the zucchini noodles. You can also use a potato peeler to make thin, flat noodles, but this takes a bit longer.

Pour the sauce over the noodles. Consume with delight.
