Nacho "Cheese" Zucchini Noodles (Dairy, Gluten and Grain Free)

We have an abundant amount of zucchini in the garden so we have been eating it in various ways.  This is definitely a delicious recipe uses my Nacho "Cheese" Sauce which eats like a meal.
Ingredients for Sauce (serves 3-4)

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/3 cup water (or more for a sauce)
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

  • Directions
    1. Place all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
    2. Add more water if needed depending on desired consistency and use.

    Prepare Zucchini (uses 1 medium/large size zucchini)
    1. Slice zucchini into very thin strips.  I used a mandolin but I am sure you could use a knife to make very thin circles or strips.
    2. Place Zucchini into a frying pan with a bit of oil.   At a low heat, add sauce and cook until zucchini is at desired consistency.  
    3. Serve.
