How was your Christmas? I hope it was filled with joy, love and of course, great food.
Most importantly, did Santa bring you a spiralizer? If he did, I have a new recipe for you to try! Today, I’ve taken a classic Italian appetizer dish (the Caprese Salad) and turned it into a wintry bowl of noodles.
Using parsley instead of basil (parsley can sustain in colder temperatures), roasting the tomatoes and choosing beets to spiralize, this bowl of noodles is a light and vegetarian – yet warm enough to keep you satisfied. The mozzarella balls are roasted too, creating a soft and yummy cheesiness to the noodles- without the heaviness!
I love experimenting with different vegetables and the winter time brings beets, carrots and butternut squashes. Beet noodles can be eaten raw, but when you roast a beet, the flavors become much more robust. Plus, the consistency of the roasted beet noodles resemble pasta more!
You’ll have to jump on over to Lean Green Bean’s blog to find the recipe. She has a fantastic blog – full of motivational and inspirational content geared towards those wanting to live a healthier lifestyle! Great timing for the New Year!
