Raw Zoodles with Fresh Tomato Vegetable Sauce and Raw Pizza Bite Faux Meatballs

It does blow my mind when I tell people I’m following a fully raw diet and they are absolutely puzzled as to what I possibly eat. Yes I even eat raw “spaghetti and meatballs”!

I’ve been working on these raw pizza bites for a while and I will continue to fiddle around with the recipe, but they really brought this meal together. I was so excited for dinner tonight and it was amazing!

Recipe for the raw pizza bite faux meatballs:
1 cup sunflower seeds
4 tablespoons hemp hearts
7 pieces of sun-dried tomatoes ( soaked in about 1/2 cup water, save the water)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon basil
1/4 cup nutritional yeast ( not a raw ingredient )
Red pepper flakes ( adjust to how spicy you want them)
2 tablespoons flax seed powder ( I used raw organics brand that had baobab fruit, because it leaves a sweet coating on the pizza bite)

Directions:
Add sunflower seeds and hemp hearts to high speed blender and process to blend. Then add in everything, but the flax seed powder. Add in enough of the water from soaking the sundried tomatoes to blend the mixture into a thick paste. The water from the soaked sundried tomatoes is necessary to give this all good flavor. I’ve tried with plain water and it’s tasteless. Add flax seed powder to a plate and ball up some of the batter into your hand then roll it around in

Ingredients for sauce:
2 medium tomatoes
3 small dates
1/4 cup cashews
3 inch piece of red bell pepper
1/2 large carrot
5 sun-dried tomato pieces
1 tablespoon avocado seed powder ( optional)
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
2 tablespoons flax seed powder ( for nutritional benefit)
Few tablespoons of water to blend
Few shakes of red pepper flakes ( add to how spicy you want the sauce or omit if you don’t like the spice)

Directions:
Blend ingredients and bam instant raw tomato sauce!

You can eat these plain or spiralize zucchini. I did a blend of yellow squash and zucchini noodles.

Enjoy!
