If you’re craving cooked food at night time then this dish will totally take care of that hankering.
I adapted this recipe from the Sweet Chilli Noodles recipe that fellow Aussie raw foodie Nadia makes.
Nadia has her own youtube channel called Fat2Fitonfruit. You should definitely check her out as she has the most amazing raw transformation story where she lost 40lbs in 6 months eating as much raw fruits and veggies as she cared for.
This dish has become one of my absolute favorites, perfect for that warming, spicy, noodley itch you need to scratch on a cold autumn or winter night. Having said that, I see no reason why you wouldn’t absolutely love it in Summer too!
You will need a spiralizer and a food processor for this recipe (or you could use a blender on a pulse setting).
Raw Sweet Chilli Noodles
The ingredients are:
4 medium to large zucchinis (try to get them as straight as possible)
Or 2 zucchinis and 2 cups of shredded asian cabbage (if you want to make slaw)
2 cobs of corn
3 cups of tomatoes
Chillies to your liking (I use about 3-5 whole small chillies, seeds and all)
Firstly, spiralize the zucchinis and put them in a bowl.
Then cut off the corn kernals and place in your food processor with 3 cups of chopped tomatoes, 5 de-seeded dates, and the chillis. Process until you have a still slightly chunky texture.
Pour the sauce on top of the noodles and mix in with our hands. You can either garnish with cilantro, or you can pulse it into the sauce once the other ingredients are mixed.
Serve in a lovely big bowl and enjoy eating these noodles with chopsticks. They completely change the flavour!
