Zucchini & Butternut Squash Pasta with Sesame Seed Sauce


We hadn’t cooked a raw meal in a LONG time, because all we’ve been wanting recently is warming, comfort food.  The guy I’m cooking meals for every day is trying to have a diet that is 60% raw now, which is somewhat a pain in the ass for me, but also a great excuse for me to start eating fresher, unbelievably healthy food.  I love this dish, and it’s really not difficult to make at all (even though spiralizing the squash was kind of a bitch).

2 medium zucchini, spiralized

1 small or half of 1 large butternut squash, spiralized

2 tbsp raw sesame seeds

2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp grated fresh ginger

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Using a mortar and pestal, crush sesame seeds until well ground
  • Mix in lemon juice, cider vinegar, salt and pepper and crush again
  • Toss together zucchini and butternut squash pasta with the cilantro, then mix in sesame seed sauce
