Raw Tomato "Pasta"

What you need: 

1 medium-large tomato
1 cucumber (6 to 7 inches, not too thick)
1 tablespoon FRESH dill, or to taste
1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme, or to taste
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon dry parsley (or 1 tablespoon fresh)
1/2 spring onion
Sunflower seeds for topping (optional)
Salt & pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1) Peel your cucumber. Slice it into noodle like shapes, I used a potato peeler and shaved mine, it turned out like fresh fettuccine. Put your "noodles" in a strainer or on-top of a kitchen towel to absorb some of the moisture, this isn't required but your pasta will be soupy if not.
2) In a blender add tomato, I don't seed mine, but I do take out the stem area. Pulse that for a few seconds. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth, or until your desired consistency.
3) Toss sauce with "noodles" or pile sauce on top. Sprinkle on some raw sunflower seeds for extra crunch. This recipe is super quick--only took me 2 minutes!
