Spaghetti with Curry Marinara


When I was little I loved fried left-over spaghetti with cheese and curry ketchup… in hindsight rather gross and, in defense of my parents, not typical of their eating habits. Be that as it may, I still have ‘a thing’ for savory-sweet curry tomato sauces… so yesterday I came up with this recipe and it sure hit the spot:

first, spiralize 2 medium sized zucchinis

I use the spirooli which I prefer over the saladacco. The latter makes finer noodles, so if you’re more into angelhair pasta this might be the spiralizer for you. While I don’t care so much either way about how thick the spaghetti are, I find the spirooli easier to work with.

then, blend

  • 7 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 fresh tomato
  • 1/4 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
  • 3/4 Tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbs olive oil, optional
  • 1-2 tsp curry powder of choice (we like mild)
  • 1/2 c water (or more… see how you like the consistency)
  • 4 dates

until smooth. Then pour over zucchini spaghetti. Makes enough for 2 adults.

Oranges Smoranges in Sedona

Today, we’re in Sedona, AZ for the Raw Living Expo. As we’re on the road, we don’t always have electricity, i.e. we can’t use our juicer. Hence we’re making a serious dent into our juice powder stash… and our giant bag of oranges has all but vanished. After finishing of our Spirulina and Healthforce Vitamineral Greens, we’ve moved on to chlorella and Dave Conrardy’s juice powders. We’ve been having LOTS of freshly pressed orange juice with these… not too sweet, rather tart in fact; perfect. In fact, I think I’ll have some more right now!


ps: Yes, I’m hooting in the video! I’ve had to all day…

Wild mustard greens salad

Today Dave Conrardy and David are speaking at Fresh Mamas in Las Vegas. Daryl, who organized today’s event, kindly invited us to pick some wild greens in his back yard. So that’s what Mia, Jamie and I did while the guys were out and about. The greens are of the mustard family and thus nice and spicy. The leaves are surprisingly tender, and look a bit like arugula/rocket. Have you had these before? And what do you like to do with them?

Stand By

No, we haven’t fallen off the edge of the world (yet ;-)), but things are a bit head over heels at the moment. We’ll probably be back in blog-land in a few weeks though… so stand by! In the mean time… here’s a picture of Jamie’s birthday cake.
