Mushroom and Black Olive Stroganoff - raw vegan light lunch.

There's something special about Zoodles! They just go so well with everything. Cooked, raw, savoury, sweet, sides, mains, snacks, I love them. From all the pics coming up on Instagram lots of other people do too. I made this a few weeks ago but never got around to posting. It's a quick and easy light lunch, snack or side. If it's cold where you are and you feel like a bit of warmth then put it in your dehydrator or oven at the lowest setting to warm up a little, it's divine.

Mushroom and Black Olive Stroganoff – raw vegan

Make: 1 serve


1 large zucchini

Stroganoff Sauce
½ zucchini – peeled
4 mushrooms
1 slice fresh fennel
1 thin slice onion
2 slices fresh ginger
½ clove fresh garlic
½ tsp fenugreek powder
¼ tsp mustard powder
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Pinch stevia (about 1/10 tsp)
1 tsp savory yeast flakes
4 raw black olives or 1 tsp Black Olive Tapenade
2-4 cherry tomatoes
2 tsp fresh chopped parsley
1 tsp fresh chives
½ tsp Himalayan or Celtic or Kalahari salt
Pinch black cracked pepper to garnish


Add zucchini, 2 mushrooms, garlic, ginger, 2 olives, fenugreek and mustard powder, salt, vinegar, stevia, yeast flakes and onion to a small blender and blend until smooth. Check for balance of flavors, and then adjust accordingly, eg. Salt, vinegar or stevia.  Slice the 2 remaining mushrooms, olives and tomatoes and add to the mushroom mix then stir them through and let sit while you prepare the zucchini noodles with a spiraliser, peeler or as a last resort you can grate it. Add the stroganoff to the noodles then garnish with the chopped chives, parsley, and pepper. Enjoy.

I used 2 button mushroom and 2 flat for variety.
