Hempseed Zucchini Pesto Pasta–Paleo and Vegan!

photo-86

This past weekend I got together with two of my girlfriends to have an impromptu healthful dinner. Although there were a  number of dietary restrictions between the three of us, we ended up creating a delicious meal that followed vegan, paleo, and ayurvedic principles. This dish digests very easily and is delicious. To check out some additional recipes (outside of my blog) you can check out my friend Dr. Karuna Sabnani’s blog. Here is the recipe that we came up with together!

Serves 3-4

Ingredients
Mushrooms
7 Zucchinis
Mint leaves
Cilantro
Spinach
hempseeds
some pine nuts (not too many)
olive oil
Salt to taste
The juice of one lime

Instructions 

Use a spiralizer to strand the zucchinis into spaghetti-like strands. If you prefer your zucchini cooked, you can cook it in boiling water for about 10 minutes. While the zucchini is cooking, saute mushrooms in olive oil at very low heat. To make the pesto sauce, take the remaining ingredients and blend with olive oil in a food processor. Pour the pesto over the zucchini strands and top off with sauteed mushrooms.
