Raw Zucchini “Rice” with Sweet & Sour Sauce

Even before going raw vegan, I was a huge fan of risottos. While experimenting, I found that vegetable rice can easily be created in a food processor. This is one variation with a fantastic sweet and sour sauce, which I make regularly. Like so many other raw recipes, this one will be easy and quick to prepare.
