Raw Yam-Noodles with Tomato-Basil Pesto

We have been into raw eating for about a year now, I would say 50% of what we eat is raw, and rest semi cooked to cooked. I have been thinking about trying a complete raw entree for quite a while. Quite a lot of raw food bloggers talk about raw noodles/pasta with yam, zucchini, carrots, etc. I was a little skeptical about how well raw yam noodles would taste, but as always my husband encouraged me to give it a try. So here's my first ever completely raw entrée, it tasted awesome. So just ordered my spiral slicer today and am waiting for the delivery. Be assured that i will be trying other such raw entrées more often now :)

For Noodles:
  • Garnet Yam - 1
  • EV Olive oil - 1 Tbsn.
  • Lemon - 2 Tbsn.
Tomato Basil Pesto
  • Tomato -1
  • Basil - 1 /2 cup
  • Spinach - 1/2 cup
  • Almonds - Handful
  • EV Olive oil - 1 Tbsn.
  • Sea salt - as per taste
  • Green Chilly  - 2-3
  • To make noodles - peel and slice the yam really thin - I just used a really sharp knife with some patience, but a spiral slicer would work the best. Toss with olive oil and lemon juice and keep aside for an hour or so if you have time. (If you are not comfortable eating the yam raw, steam them after slicing them).
  • To make pesto - blend all the ingredients in a high speed blender till nice and creamy.
  • Toss the noodles with the pesto and enjoy !!
