Raw Spaghetti & “Meatballs”

Standard

Don’t these yummy little orbs look just like the real deal?

I honestly think they rival any real meatball (although I’m sure most meatballs aren’t even made of real “meat”), but I have to admit I’ve never actually had a meatball my entire life. But I DO know what they look like and I think these raw walnut balls really hit the mark. They’re spiced beautifully and I think when raw food LOOKS like it’s cooked counterpart, it make it a lot more appetizing. John is not easily excited but even this dish drove him to send me a text that read “this spaghetti is AWESOME!!!!!!”.

And there’s your endorsement for this meal.

FOR THE PASTA

3 summer squash, spiralized

FOR THE SAUCE

2 cups chopped tomatoes

1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup chopped green onions

1 tbsp nutritional yeast

  • Blend all tomato sauce ingredients in a blender until well mixed
  • Remove from blender and toss with spiralized squash
  • For the meatballs, pulse all ingredients in a food processor until it turns into a thick paste
