View Full Version : Tagliatelle Al Pesto
02-24-2010, 11:53 AM
When soaked, sea spaghetti becomes large and soft like tagliatelle noodles, and when coated in a delicious raw pesto sauce, it is so similar to real pasta you won't believe your taste buds!
- 1 package raw sea spaghetti
- 2 ounces fresh basil
- 1/2 cup raw pine nuts
- 2 garlic cloves
- 2 T nutritional yeast (optional, but yummy and rich in B vitamins!)
- 1/4 cup olive oil, and more as needed
- 1/4 t salt, or to taste
- Soak the sea spaghetti overnight in the fridge. Rinse, if desired, and set aside.
- In a food processor, blend all the other ingredients to make pesto. Add a little more olive oil if it's too dry.
- Toss the sea spaghetti with the pesto, arrange on a serving plate, and enjoy!

Are you in the US or UK?
UK -> www.rawliving.eu
US -> www.sirova.com
These are the only places selling raw sea spaghetti (not 100% sure about the UK, but pretty sure, and Kate Magic is lovely).

What does sea spaghetti taste like?
How is the texture after soaking?

When you soak it, it gets wide like between a linguine and a tagliatelle, and it becomes soft, not crunchy. It has a mild sea veggie taste after soaking if you don't rinse it (I don't rinse it, and the pesto took over regardless) and if you rinse it, it gets milder and milder.

Is sea spaghetti the same as kelp noodles?
03-17-2010, 05:36 PM
Not at all!
Please read this (http://www.rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=58145&highlight=spaghetti) (RFT link).
"Sea spaghetti is more nutritious than kelp noodles, just like unprocessed kelp is more nutritious than kelp noodles. Consider the following numbers:
In a 4 ounce serving, kelp noodles contain dietary fiber (4%), calcium (15%) and iron (4%). The nutrition facts label says little else.
In a 4 gram (I previously erroneously wrote ounce instead of gram) serving, sea spaghetti contains dietary fiber (5%), vitamin C (400%), potassium (40%), magnesium (29%), calcium (25%) and iodine (56%). Sea spaghetti is by far one of the most nutritious raw pasta replacement available, and when you consider that each sea spaghetti package contains more than 10 times the above serving size, it really is a bargain!"
Note that a small quantity is needed for all this nutrition. Personally, I eat half a package at a time because it's so good, but you can eat very little and get tons of nutrition.

Ooooooo sounds good, I will have to try some!

I love it. Tonya Kay, who's quite the seaweed connoisseur, is raving about them. :)
Mmm I think I'm going to go soak some now for tomorrow. :D

I would love to "try" these. How much is shipping to AZ for one package? Thanks! Ü
03-20-2010, 01:45 PM
We charge a flat $8.50 for anything up to $100, and then we offer free shipping on orders $100 and up. Maybe you could stock up on other raw essentials? We try hard to have very competitive prices :)

How many servings are in the 50 gram pack? Like, maybe how many cups?
I want to try these to make sure I like them before I invest a lot of money into them.
I love your website too :D

Each pack has 10 servings, meaning that you'll get the nutrition listed 10 times over if you eat the entire package. However, because it's so nutritious, very little is needed and the volume is not huge (I have measured it, maybe 3 cups total?). I personally get 2 servings out of the pack, but that means I get 5 times the nutrition listed, because I like to eat a lot of it. Tonya Kay and a friend of mine like to add it to their salads, instead of having it be the main meal ingredients. Other customers like to eat it like pasta. I really depends on your personal preference!

Thanks for your response.
I went to your website and started looking around to see what other raw foods you offer and came across a quite surprising discovery!
The product below (Nutiva Coconut Oil) is NOT raw!
Nutiva came out with a statement almost two years ago. They discovered that during the processing of the fresh coconut that the temperatures went well over 140 degrees. I have been in constant contact with the owner because of returns that I made of this coconut oil and my desire to purchase truly raw coconut oil from them. The latest email I received from Nutiva stated that they hoped it would be available by April 2010.
If you have bulk purchased the Nutiva Coconut Oil from Nutiva you are entitled to a refund from them.
BUT in the meantime, you cannot sell this coconut oil as RAW on your website as it is definitely not raw.
There are many posts about this issue on this website as when it was first discovered that Nutiva did not have a raw, organic coconut oil it was discussed a lot. I am sure you could find those posts as they should still be here.

I will investigate that with them, and in the meanwhile I removed "raw". They do say it is cold processed so I will see if maybe they changed their process or something.
