Yield: 2

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cashews raw, soaked
  • 8 oz chicken breast roasted, organic (or grass fed steak or grilled shrimp or salmon or tofu)
  • 6 cups zucchini spiralized
  • 1 teaspoon macadamia nut oil
  • 1/4 cup onion minced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic fresh, minced
  • zest of 1 lemon (optional)
  • dash nutmeg (optional)
  • dash parsley fresh, minced (optional)
  • salt & pepper (optional)

Directions:

  • Soak cashews at least 8 hours. Rinse, put into a high powered blender, add 1 cup of cold water, and blend until smooth and creamy (thin milk consistency).
  • Either prepare roasted chicken breast, or buy a whole ORGANIC roasted chicken.
  • Make zucchini noodles on a spiralizer, or buy some ORGANIC zucchini noodles.
  • In a small sauce pan, over medium heat, sauté the macadamia nut oil and onion about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute. Add cashew cream and cook just to a slightly thick cream consistency (cashew cream can seize up easily, simply add water if it’s a little too thick). Remove from heat.
  • Briefly in a heated large skillet or sauté pan, heat the zucchini noodles. You want them to maintain their texture, so only heat a minute or so!
  • Plate your noodles
