So easy to make, endless possibilities, no recipe book needed, only your imagination. In December 2004 I bought a spiral slicer and started making zuccini (or other vegetable) pasta. You can create your favourite pasta dish by topping the pasta with sliced vegetables of your choice and sauce made either from nuts and water, or blended soaked sun-dried tomatoes. For example, top up zuccini pasta with
  • lots of thin tomato slices,
  • a few thin onion slices,
  • thin avocado slices,
  • broccoli slices, and
  • sauce made from cashews (no more than 1/3 cup per person) processed in a food processor with water, lemon juice and a few fresh (or soaked, dried) dates.
Of course, you can be far more creative than this!

To make the fettucini meal below, follow these steps (serves two):

Using a peeler, slice 3-4 zuccini into thin slices (fettucini).
Blend a handful of sundried tomatoes with 3 tomatoes.
Toss the sauce and some chopped up parsley with the fettucini.
Mix well, place on a. plate

Next, make a salad dressing by blending
avocado, juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 orange, 2-3 fresh dates.
Place mixed greens on the plate and pour the dressing on top.

Finally chop up some asparagus and cucumber.
On top of those pour a dressing made by blending
a cup of strawberries with 2 fresh dates.

To make the "mountain with a cloud" below,
 follow these steps (serves two):

Using spiral slicer, make spaghetti from 3-4 zuccini, and place in a large bowl.
Also in the slicer, slice 1 cucumber.
Then chop up up 1 carrot, 1 asparagus, 1 capsicum, and a bunch of parsley.
Mix everything in the bowl, together with a sauce made by blending
a handful of sundried tomatoes, 3 tomatoes,
a small handful of pine nuts, and a bunch of basil.
Place on a plate forming a mountain.

On top of the mountain place a cloud made by blending
1 avocado, juice of 1/2 lemon and 1 orange, and 4 dates.
