You won’t miss wheat pasta in this flavorful Italian entrée.

Ingredients

  • 2 zucchini, peeled
  • 1/3 cup Marinara Sauce

Equipment

  • peeler
  • vegetable spiral slicer
  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • medium bowl
  • measuring spoons
  • tongs

Cut the zucchini into thin noodles using a vegetable spiral slicer. Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to create long ribbons, or “fettuccine,” by drawing the peeler down all sides of the zucchini until you reach the core. Put in a medium bowl and toss with the sauce. Serve immediately.

Warming Option: Put the sauce in a small saucepan over low heat and warm for about 1 minute, taking care not to overheat it. Toss with the pasta. Serve immediately.

Cut the zucchini into thin noodles using a vegetable spiral slicer. Alternatively, use a vegetable peeler to create long ribbons, or “fettuccine,” by drawing the peeler down all sides of the zucchini until you reach the core. Put the avocados, chile, garlic, and salt in a medium bowl and stir to combine. Add the zucchini noodles and toss. Serve immediately, garnished with the tomato and lime wedges.

Yield: 1 serving

The sun-dried tomatoes in the pâté stuffing provide intense color and flavor in this appetizing dish.

Ingredients

Equipment

  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • teaspoon
  • small bowl
  • measuring spoons
  • small bowl
  • plate
  • measuring cup
  • rubber spatula

Use a teaspoon to remove enough of the inside of the mushroom cap to create a cavity for stuffing. Put the cap in a small bowl, sprinkle with the tamari, and turn several times until the cap is evenly coated. Let marinate for 5 to 30 minutes. Drain off excess tamari and pat the mushroom dry. Put the mushroom cap on a plate, with the inside of the cap facing up. Stuff with the pâté and garnish with the parsley. Serve immediately.

Stuffed Mushroom Appetizers: Replace the portobello mushroom with 8 cremini or button mushrooms and use an additional 1/2 teaspoon of tamari. Stuff each with 1 1/2 teaspoons of pâté. Yield: 4 servings.

  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced mushrooms
  • 2 teaspoons tamari

Cut off the thickest part of the collard leaf stem. Lay the collard leaf horizontally on the cutting board, with the inside facing up. Layer the onions and mushrooms, avocado, cucumber, and carrot on the leaf. Roll up the leaf burrito style, tucking in the ends as you go. Slice the roll into two pieces. Serve immediately.
