Raw Zucchini Roll-Ups

Yesterday I posted my first version of raw zucchini lasagna - layered stacks of peeled vegetables with cashew cheese and raw tomato sauce.

Then since I still had leftover cashew cheese and tomato sauce the next day, I decided to reconstruct the lasagna into a different form - zucchini roll-ups! I got the idea after seeing some raw zucchini sushi rolls on the blog For the Love of Food.

These were pretty easy and fun to make and I liked that they were more bite sized compared to the lasagna, so they would be a good appetizer to serve!

After trying both versions of my raw zucchini lasagna now, I can't decide which one I liked better!

Raw Zucchini Roll-Ups
Inspired by For the Love of Food

I don't have an exact "recipe" for this, but here is what I did:
(Also, see my raw zucchini lasagna post or the zucchini sushi rolls at the link above for additional help!)

You need:
about 1/2 a large zucchini
1/2 a carrot
1/2 a beet
cashew cheese
raw tomato sauce

Peel or slice the zucchini into wide, thin strips. Peel the carrot and raw beet and slice into equally sized pieces with a knife.

Lay out a strip of zucchini and place a spoonful of cashew cheese on one end. Lay a few slices each of carrot and beet on top of the cheese. Roll up the zucchini and secure with a toothpick.

Repeat for as many roll-ups as you like. Top with the raw tomato sauce.

Makes 6 roll-ups (using amounts above)
