Zucchini and Squash “pasta” with tomato, garlic and basil

This can be served as a completely raw vegan dish or cooked up a bit. Fast, delicious and super fresh!


3-4 small zucchini and yellow summer squash (2 of each makes for a nice, colorful dish) sliced with a mandoline or knife into slivers like spaghetti

about 24 cherry tomatoes cut in half

2 cloves garlic, pressed or diced

bunch of fresh basil, chopped

1 Tbsp olive oil

pinch of salt and pepper, to taste


For completely raw serving, mix everything in a large bowl and serve!

I like to heat the oil and garlic just a bit until the garlic bubbles in the oil. Stir, turn off the heat and mix into the remaining ingredients. Takes a little bit of the edge off the raw garlic.
