Raw Vegan Fettuccine Alfredo - Low Fat
Added 2017-09-07 15:13:15

Ingredients:

Ingredients for fettuccine 

  • Courgettes – quantities are optional 

Ingredients for the sauce: 

  • 1 courgette  
  • 30 g/ 1 oz hemp hearts 
  • ½ lemon 
  • A couple of basil leaves 

Order raw, organic, hulled* hemp hearts:

* I hear a lot people like to use unhuelled seeds like sesame and hemp seeds. From what I understand, 
we cannot digest hulls of the seeds. I use hemp and other seeds exclusively hulled.

Of all seeds - which I use sparingly anyway, hemp seeds are my favourite because:

Hemp seeds:

  • contain a favourable ratio of omega 3 and omega 6, unlike other seeds that contain usually more omega 6 fatty acids.
     
  • don't contain phytic acid like other seeds (and nuts). Phytic acid binds the minerals in the body creating unusable compounds. Phytic acid is water dissoluble, so it can be removed by soaking nuts and seeds. Hemp seeds thus don't require soaking.
     
  • don't require dehydration! Generally, shelled nuts and seeds are dehydrated to prevent them from going rancid after they are shelled and thus exposed to the oxygen. Dehydration of nuts and seeds can render them not raw any more. Hemp seeds don't require dehydration.
     
  • come from a hemp plant that requires no chemicals for growing.

 

Equipment

  • A knife and cutting board
  • A peeler
  • A citrus presser
  • A blender

Order a Vitamix here:

Preparation: 

  • Peel the courgettes; 
  • Cut the courgettes lengthwise into quarters; 
  • Peel each quarter into fettuccini; 
  • So, the pasta is ready now, let's prepare the sauce! 

  • Use the courgette middles left from making fettuccine to make the sauce; 
  • Place the corugette middles, hemp hearts, basil leaves and lemon juice into the blender;  
  • Blend these ingredients into the sauce; 
     
  • Pour the sauce over the fettuccine; 
  • Mix the sauce well into the fettuccine; 
  • Serve the fettuccine Alfredo onto a plate; 

  • Add some grated cauliflower on top for parmesan look; 

  • Bon appetit!
