Raw food chefs have learned how to puree, whip,
slice, sliver, grate, chop, dice and mince food to make raw
food more palatable for most people. These kinds of food preparation
preserve the enzymes and other factors in food that are lost
or damaged in cooking. But at the same time allow for the
creation of pleasing flavors that are similar to what we're
already accustomed to in a cooked food diet.
now, there is a new texture being introduced to raw food enthusiasts
around the world and it is destined to become standard kitchen
equipment for raw food preparation.
your eyes and picture this: a mountain of angel hair pasta,
tossed in a basil, pine nut and garlic pesto, piled high onto
a serving platter. See and smell the beautiful green sauce
coating each individual strand with a symphony of flavors:
rich, flavorful and satisfying all at once.
Can one create a genuine pasta experience like this, but still
raw, all raw? I'm here to tell you that it can be done quickly
and easily with the Spiral Slicer. Just take some zucchini
or butternut squash or a combination of the two, place in
your Spiral Slicer - give it a few whirls and there you have
the basis for an enticing dish. Cut the pasta a little so
you have a manageable length and then toss it with your favorite
raw Pasta sauce. Try the Pine Nut or Walnut Pesto sauce from
Rhio's book Hooked On Raw. Or for different
flavor treats, you could try the Chedda Sauce, Marinara Sauce
or Indian Spice Sauce. Serve with a green salad. Make enough
because they'll be asking for seconds!
