  3. Optional - you can warm through the zucchini by sauteing or steaming if you prefer it heated
  4. Black Ground Pepper is also nice, although I like to stay away from adding salt or pepper automatically to my dishes thesedays, but for a variation, I might add them sometimes.

Nuts should be added to the diet in moderation, we should only have a maximum of around 10 nuts per day, but vegetarians and raw foodists tend to get a little carried away with adding too many nuts to their daily diets & creating multitudes of nut-filled recipes. So add some nuts to this dish, but be mindful of your intake, as the body has to work very hard to digest nuts, so give your body a break and add them sparingly. They are still good for you, just don’t overdo it. If you don’t eat many nuts in your normal daily eating habits, you can add a lot more nuts to this dish (up to 1/4 cup), but if you eat nuts regularly, I would only be adding a maximum of 10 nuts.
