Sweet and Savoury Noodles | Raw Vegan Recipes

I’m excited to share a simple, optionally hygienic, sweet and savoury noodles recipe that is also low fat and raw vegan!

This is a super simple and optionally hygienic no-fat raw vegan recipe that can help you to get in more greens. Most people find it easy to get a bunch of fruit into their diet via smoothies, fruit soups, juices, etc., but have difficulty getting enough greens. Most well-versed long-term raw food experts recommend getting at least 1 – 2% of your total calories from greens. That doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you consider that it is 1-2+ lbs of greens, you see it is a large amount.

Something unique about this dish is that it includes greens as the noodles and has some in the sauce. To some, this may seem strange at first, but they are mixed in such a way that they bring a depth of flavor to the sauce, making one think there are more ingredients in it than there are. Another unique aspect of this recipe is that it uses sweet fruit paired with greens, which is a great digestive combo, as opposed to acid fruits and fat, which is more typical for a dinner meal for many. This is advantageous if one wishes to get in more calories without adding in more fat or if one wishes to curb a sweet and salty craving all at once!

The star of this recipe is the mighty Persimmon, a seasonal fall treat that leaves one waiting in anticipation for its season. There are more than a few types of persimmons, but for simplicity’s sake, we will divide them into astringent (the most common being the cone-shaped Hachiya) and non-astringent persimmons (the most common being the tomato-shaped Fuyu). The astringent varieties need to be ripened to the point that many would think it’s gone bad, fully soft and starting to turn translucent, otherwise, you will find trying to eat one leaves your mouth feeling as if you tried to eat insulation. If you pick up a ripe hachiya persimmon, you must be very careful as it almost feels like a water balloon about to burst! The non-astringent varieties, on the other hand, can be eaten hard or soft, for this recipe, we want very soft goopy persimmons, hachiya is my preferred choice but ripe fuyu’s will do as well!

I hope you Love this recipe and find new ways to play in the kitchen with these unique tricks and tips!
