Sweetly Raw – Pea Pesto Noodles (Vegan/Nut-Free) & GIVEAWAY

Lately I've been eating endless bowls of today's recipe and I'm excited to share it so that you can make it too! I'm pretty sure that you'll be hooked.

I've come across a lot of people are iffy on the taste of matcha, and I agree that it can be bitter and overpowering if too much is used OR if the quality is sub par. I promise that these recipes have been designed with what I feel is the right amount of matcha to be able to taste it but in a pleasant way - that being said, you can always start with less and add more to suite your...
