  • Noodles
  • Cut the edge of the zucchini and make the noodles with your spiralizer. Put the "noodles" in a bowl, add a pinch of salt and massage the zucchini noodles for a few minutes to soften them. Set aside.
  • Mushrooms
  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, stir and let marinate for 15-30 minutes
  • Spinach
  • Combine ingredients together in a bowl, stir and let marinade for 15-30 minutes.
  • Sauce
  • Drain cashews and add them to your blender. Add 1/2 cup water and remaining ingredients. Blend until silky smooth. Add a little more water if needed. Reserve.
  • Vegan Parmesan
  • Add nuts to food processor and process until crumbled. Add remaining ingredients and process again until you get a similar texture to parmesan. Reserve.
  • Assemble
  • Drain water from zucchini noodles. Add spinach and mushrooms, stir, add in sauce, stir again, plate and add parmesan on top. Serve.


You can make your own vegan "parmesan" or buy it in most health food stores although many grocery stores carry it nowadays. If you are new to make raw noodle dish, I highly recommend using zucchinis only.
