Recipe Directions

  • 1. Add cashews and sun-dried tomatoes to your food processor. Pulse to incorporate.
  • 2. Now add carrot and chili powder (and optional basil) to the food processor mixture. Process again until smooth, resembling a nut pate.
  • 3. To make your noodles, peel your zucchini (remove outer green peel).
  • 4. Use a clean vegetable peeler (or a spirooli spiralizer if you have one) to slice zucchini into “noodles.”
  • 5. Place the noodles and the sauce into a large bowl and gently stir using two spoons until well combined. Eat immediately.

The Rawtarian's Thoughts

By The Rawtarian

These raw Asian-inspired noodles are my live version of one of those instant noodle packs that are popular as instant side-dishes that pack zero nutrition. Plus, I'd argue that my recipe is even quicker to prepare (since you don't have to boil and wait), as long as you have a spiralizer to make your zucchini noodles, that is. (Best investment ever! Besides a Vitamix blender, of course!)

The Asian sauce is a thicker sauce than you might be used to, it's more of a nut pate. But don't worry about it. Just be gentle and thorough when mixing it with your noodles, and the final result will be similar to the photos.

The Asian sauce/pate keeps extremely well in the fridge for up to 3 days. However, zucchini noodles should not be made in advance. So if making in advance, store the sauce in the fridge, and then make your zucchini noodles at the last minute and then assemble. Once assembled, the recipe does not keep well (it'll get soggy).

Yum! I agree that I didn’t quite taste the “Asian” influence. I added lime at the end as one other review mentioned and that took it over the top! It was VERY good, but tasted more like a bolanagze sauce to me. :) Easy to make and the recipe was easy to follow as well. I always love your recipes they have so much flavor. You always know how to balance everything. Each time I try a new recipe I’m always surprised how tasty it is! If you’re looking at this recipe don’t hesitate to try. I used zucchini noodles and next time will try kelp or maybe even spiralized carrot.

These were great! I'm working on going raw and made these for dinner one night. My Mom, who isn't raw, tried them and also loved them and is anxious for me to make them again! I look forward to trying more of your recipes! Blessings!

So though I didn't love this dish, my husband did. He was surprised there were no noodles in it! So here's his 5 star rating.

This little gadget makes zucchini noodle strips and easy to use and store. Asian market for about$6

Nice find! I don't have one of those, and it's much more reasonably-priced than the spiralizer that I have: http://tinyurl.com/bzrgrau

Probably good for quick meal prep!

It was ok. I didn't taste the Asian inspiration. It just tasted like tomato sauce. I had to add oil and water to mine to get the paste consistency. I didn't have a spiralizer but I have a neat little grater/ peeler gadget from the Asian market that does fine- but you get noodle like strips, not curls. It's much cheaper and easy to store.

This was tasty, but my sauce was more like a paste than a sauce.

I wouldn't disagree with describing it as a paste. It is pastey - but not in a bad way :) Nice presentation :)

This dish is excellent. I had it with Kelp noodles. Also didnt have chili powder so used a clove of garlic, some paprika and dried oregano.

This is insanely delicious! i made it with kelp noodles. Quick question: aren't sundried tomatoes presoaked considered not raw but still vegan? i love sundried tomatoes so I'm not sure it is going to make too much of a difference to me, as I am also unable to find bulk raw sundried tomatoes. Incredible recipe! Thank you so much. :)

Hi Elizabeth! You are correct re: the sundried tomatoes that you purchase in a store, but you can do them yourself to ensure 100% raw.

I'm going to try making this tomorrow night, but I think that curry powder will give it a more Asian flavor, so I'm going to try that. And I might garnish with julienned red pepper.

Thank you for your recipes!

I made these with curry powder and cilantro, which I liked, but to take them to another level I really needed lime. Since I didn't have lime, I'm going to try them again, but will probably leave out the curry powder and turn them into peanut noodles instead. Since I'm not raw - just trying to eat way less pasta and more raw food - I can use organic peanut butter. Then I'll add cilantro and lime and probably LOVE these like crazy.

This recipe was my first unveiling of the Spirooli that I got as a Christmas present. It works beautifully! My two kids loved make the "noodles."
