I DOOOOOOOOOO LOOOOOOOOVE ME SOME RAW FOOD DISHES!! 🙂

okay.. yes.. I am on a kelp noodle kick.. can you blame me?  I just spent waaaay too much of my food budget on eating at my fav RAW food restaurants and I cannot get enough, so gotta make it all work but making my craved-for dishes in my own kitchen.

That’s why I threw together what I had in my pantry and fridge and came up with a pesto-ish version of raw pasta.  It was flavorful and satisfying…and there was no cheese!  You could add raw goat cheese or others if you like…
