I love the feeling that I have after enjoying a raw food meal. A kick of energy from a meal packed with live nutrients – which leaves me wonderfully vibrant, satisfied and energized for hours!
The satisfaction that you get from a raw food meal is quite a different feeling than you get after eating a typical lunch. A typical meat-based meal will often leave you feeling tired and heavy afterwards – ready for a nap. But the last thing you think about after a raw food meal, is taking a nap 🙂
Zucchini Fettuccine served w/ fresh tomato sauce and caper berries
This dish is perfect on it’s own, but it fits wonderfully well with a piece of grilled salmon.
Yesterday, we had it for lunch, with slices of avocado and fresh crispy baby spinach.
It is simple and delicious, refreshing and so easy to make. All you need is:
4 Ripe tomatoes
1/2 red pepper
1 clove of garlic
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
A bunch of baby spinach
First you make the sauce – you chop the tomatoes, peel the garlic, cut the pepper in half and remove the seeds.
Put it in the blender, squeeze the 1/2 lemon, add sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Blend into a deliciously fresh tomato sauce.
You make the zucchini fettuccine by using a potato peeler and length wise cutting thin strips like this…
Serve it with leaves of crispy baby spinach some avocado, drizzled with plenty of fresh tomato sauce, leaves of Italian parsley and caper berries and a glass of fresh cool water
Holy Moly – that looks DELICIOUS!
Thank you Laurie 🙂 It’s so fresh and good!
Do you ever use oil in your salads? I know that avocado is here for omega and grease :D.
Oh yes Paula, I use lots of delicious olive oil and I love it 🙂

The only problem I have with this post is that I would want a much bigger serving of that delicious zucchini fettucine! Looks divine!
I second that (haha, literally!) 🙂
Love you 🙂
Ha ha Somer – there’s more in the bowl 🙂
Thank you friend! XXX
This dish looks absolutely divine! It’s the perfect injection of Spring! Thank you, lovely Anne! 🙂
You are sweet!! Thank YOU 🙂
That is one brilliant, healthy and delicious idea. I never thought of making fettucine from fresh vegetables. Raw food meal is one great discovery. I can also try other vegetables as well. I’n trying to loose weight and watch my calories for the past few days. This would be one perfect solution. Thanks.
Yes you are so right – raw meals are fabulous!
The best and only way I could ever loose weight was by adding more plant-based foods into my normal diet and it works wonders, without me even thinking about it or feeling I am missing out and restricting myself! That’s what I love 🙂
Fantastic photos of a dish that reminds me of a delicious gazpacho that I had while living in Santo Domingo.
Aah yes, don’t you just love gazpacho 🙂
Such a beautiful and simple salad Anne! Zucchini and avocados my very favorite vegetable and that sauce with caper berries looks downright delicious 🙂
I’m actually eating quite a bit of zucchini pasta at the moment and I’m very excited to check this one out. I use a julienne iron to make spaghetti but the potato peelers is if course awesome to make fettuccine. I think I know what I’m having for lunch tomorrow!
Hi Christina – I hope you enjoy it!
Good to see you 🙂 I must “drop in” to check the books you are recommending on your blog – I need inspiration for something great to read this summer!
