This creamy raw ‘pasta’ dish is super healthy, as it is dairy and gluten free. Most conventional pasta dishes still contains harmful, unsafe, processed ingredients (wheat) that makes the majority of us feel overly bloated!
As this recipe is plant based, you will not experience the bloated feeling you would usually have from eating the traditional pasta type. This is because courgettes are easy on the digestive system and provides whole food nutrients which works with the body (traditional pasta is heavy on the digestive system due to its isolated missing nutrients from the processing of the ‘food’, which is no longer a whole food).As a result of isolated missing nutrients from the pasta creates a sluggish, uncomfortable feeling. This is because the body does not recognise missing/isolated nutrients, as it needs all of its nutritional compartments to work together in the body.This is when illnesses and conditions arise, as the body steals certain nutrients from certain parts of the body, such as the bones to compromise for its lost whole food nutritional compartments. So, as an alternative, courgettes are an amazing way to form ‘pasta’ like shapes, with the help of a spiralizer machine.
This dish has a creamy consistency, due to the texture of an avocado and has a refreshing and lemony, yet savoury flavour. The feathery plant, dill has a lovely taste which is delicious to use as a seasoning or sauce for a savoury dish.
The natural essence of dill is faint, which is almost a similar scent of aniseed. The herb has a slight sweeter fragrance than its dried fruits. Dill leaves an amazing aroma that will satisfy your taste buds and sense of smell.
