This truly is my favorite raw food dish. I think raw food dishes, are a nice way to make a “salad” look a bit different, and therefor cheat the brain into thinking that your eating something else.
Have you ever thought about how many ways you can serve a bolognese? There’s the traditional bolognese, lasagne, beef cannelloni and ravioli. They are practically the same dish, served in different ways (Alright, you can serve MANY different varieties, but I’m sure you get my point).
This is the same concept, just with raw fruits and vegetables (So it’s not really the same. It’s MUCH better).
This dish is sweet, spicy, sour, bitter crispy and soft at the same time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Serves 1 person
1 cucumber (Unless you can eat more)
1 tsp. curry powder
½ red chili pepper
1 clove of garlic
1 bunch of basil
1 bunch of cilantro
The juice of 1 lime
How it’s done:
Put the tomatoes, basil and cilantro in the food processor and blend it a bit so it’s still chunky. This is the base of the sauce.
Put the tomatoes into a sieve, so they can drain for 5 minutes.
Peel the mango and put it in the food processor with the ginger, curry powder and chili. Press the garlic in the sauce and blend. It doesn’t have to be completely smooth, but it should be less chunky than the tomato sauce.
Mix the drained tomato sauce with the mango sauce and squeeze a lime into the sauce.
Make cucumber noodles with a spiralizer or a julienne iron, and serve as shown on the picture.
