We've been trying to come up with ways to use the raw cacao nibs we bought a while back, and this turned out to be a good tasting experiment. The sauce had a depth (cumin/cacao/red bell pepper) and consistency (flax/pumpkin seeds) and stuck to the zucchini noodles quite well.

The mushrooms were tossed with olive oil, nama shoyu, cumin seed, coriander, mexican oregano, garlic and a touch of jalapeno and dehydrated for a hour or so at 115F.

Raw Mole Sauce

1 tbs. raw cacao nibs
1 tbs. pumpkin seeds
1 tbs. flax seeds
1 tsp. Mexican oregano
1 tsp. cumin seeds
1 tsp. coriander

1 red bell pepper
1 tsp. jalapeno (or more if you like the heat)
1 tbs. agave
1 tbs. nama shoyu

Grind the dry ingredients, juice the wet ingredients and combine. Check for seasoning. Serve with zucchini noodles and mushrooms.
