This mimics a dish commonly served in peruvian restaurants. Its basically spaghetti in a green pesto and its usually served with a side of Aji (ahi), a delicious spicy sauce made with a special peruvian herb called Huacatay (or Black Mint), which is a little hard to find unless there is a latin market in your area. The kelp noodles don’t exactly taste like noodles so it throws it off a bit from the original taste, but it still tastes great and is a great way to get down greens in alternative to a green smoothie!
I actually don’t know the quantities, i just do it by intuition! But I will put the ingredients in order of most to least
Kelp Noodles are used in this photo, also can use Zucchini Noodles!
Basil, arugula or spinach, mint, soaked pine nuts, sprouted sunflower seeds, garlic, olive oil, sea salt, nama shoyu, water, optional herbs and spices
lettuce (iceberg or romaine), about a cup of cashews (to substitute for mayo), green onions (3 or 4), 3 tbsps Huacatay paste, (or substitute a bunch of Cilantro), mint, lots of lime juice, garlic, jalapeno (1-3 depending on how spicy you like it), olive oil or vegetable oil
I got this from the book “Raw Food Made Easy” by Jennifer Cornbleet. It truly tastes better than any bought or cooked marinara or pasta sauce. Put it on pasta, pizza, even use it as a salad dressing if you’re feeling adventurous!

yields about 5 cups
This recipe was born today when I used the left over milk from making “Dulce de las Tres Leches” (Three Sort Milk Dessert – not the cake) raw version, for a shake. The original cooked recipe comes from Puerto Rico. Well, it also exists in Colombia and Venezuela, but I know it from Puerto Rico. This is not the recipe for the dessert, it is for the mixture of the creamy three sort milk raw I came up with. It is a drink, a sauce, a cream… It can be used for soups, creamier and sweeter consistency, in a shake, flan, desserts, you name it. I think it would make a great egglessnog sprinkel with cinamon for the festivities.
