One of my favorite comforting raw dishes to make is raw spaghetti and “meat”balls. It’s also a good option to make for those who may be hesitant to try a raw meal. You’ll need a food processor and a spiralizer for this recipe. Spiralizers magically turn vegetables or fruits into noodles. I recommend the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade spiralizer or the Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Cutter. If you have a dehydrator, you can also dehydrate the “meat”balls for about 2 hours or until firm – but this isn’t necessary. The following recipe is adapted from Matthew Kenney’s Everday Raw Express. Makes 2-4 servings.
