1/4 cup parsley
1 can artichoke hearts
2 cloves garlic
1 lemon, freshly juiced
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 can white beans
1/4 cup raw cashews
1 tablespoon coconut oil
Salt (Celtic Grey, Himalayan, or Redmond Real Salt)
Pepper to taste
Slice the zucchini lengthwise using a mandolin, or slice it very thin with a knife or potato peeler. Brush with olive oil and set aside.
Blend the parsley, artichoke, garlic, lemon juice and zest, white beans, and cashews in a food processor until paste like. Flash sauté the zucchini slices in the coconut oil for 1 minute on each side, or use them raw. Spread the filling on each zucchini slice. Roll up.
Season with sea salt and pepper.
