Zucchini noodles are a home run in the raw food world. The veggie has a neutral taste, so these “zoodles” take on the flavor of the sauce they’re tossed in (we went with a simple garlic and olive oil mixture here). To prepare zucchini noodles, use a spiralizer for curly noodles or a vegetable peeler to for fettuccini-style ribbons. The best part? You can prep the whole dish in one bowl.
