This is honestly one of my favorite raw food creations... EVER! What is the pasta made of? Actually, it's Kelp with Green Tea! David Wolfe has said that right now we have the worst ever foods available to us (i.e. anything from a drive-up window) while simultaneously having the best ever foods available to us (i.e. KELP noodles with Green Tea, of all things. This meal is truly prana-rich as it incorporates two wild foods- kelp and wakame, which have twice as much biophoton energy as cultivated foods do. Biophotons were discovered by a researcher by the name of Popp, who found that all living things emit this subtle form of light. He also discovered that the healthier a person (or plant) was, the more biophotons their systems' were emitting. So... how do you increase your biophoton energy? Eat biophoton rich, living foods! (Cooked foods do not contain biophotons.) Read the Live Food Factor for more information on this subject.
Both kelp and Brazil nuts contain thyroid-health promoting nutrients. Kelp, as it's from the sea, contains all the minerals we require for health.

American Cheese from Living on Live Food by Alissa Cohen:

Step 1: Toss the noodles with the sun-dried tomatoes (slice first, if desired) and the wakame.
Step 2: Combine the Cheese ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth and 'cheesy.'
Step 3: Massage just enough Cheese into the noodles to nicely coat. Use the rest of the cheese for future servings of cheesy noodles, raw wraps, burgers, or sandwiches... or dehydrate into delicious slices for anytime use.
Step 4: Hoist the mixture onto a place a sprinkle some chopped parsley, lemon juice and black pepper on the noodles if you wish.
You'll probably find Wakame at your local organic Food Co-op. Or, look for it in the Japanese Food Section at Whole Foods. Sun Fire Salt and Kelp Noodles are Available from:
