Summer Vegetable Puttanesca

by cleanteam in Recipes

The ingredients in this “kitchen sink” type of pasta dish are typical of recipes in the southern parts of Italy; lots of tomatoes, olive oil, olives, capers and garlic. This is a refreshing and easy to pull together twist on a classic meal. The “noodles” are actually raw vegetables and the sauce is also a raw blend […]

As a refreshing dessert in the summer, try this one first, but feel free to experiment with different combinations. Mango, kiwi, blueberry; there are endless possibilities.

Zucchini Fritters

The sauce is optional but highly recommended. Stick to plain fritters or another sauce if you’re on the Cleanse and omitting red peppers. If […]
