Asian Sesame Spiralized Carrots

Asian Sesame Spiralized Carrots

I often crave teriyaki sauce. I think it stems from my love affair with teriyaki tofu stir fries, which were the first dinner meals I learned how to make in my college apartment.

Usually when I crave teriyaki, it’s with chicken or shrimp and then I’m torn as to what to serve the protein with.

Thankfully, now, I have this spiralized sesame salad in my recipe arsenal and of course, so do you!

This salad couldn’t get any easier – you just toss everything together in a bowl! It’s perfect for those last minute, “What do I make for dinner?” situations.

So what can you pair it with? Teriyaki grilled chicken, some chili shrimp, or even just add some quinoa and avocado, and you have a light sesame salad.

If you are having trouble finding large enough carrots for the spiralizer, try subbing in zucchini noodles – they’ll work great as well, just let them sit a bit longer so they can soften up.

That’s all I have in regards to today’s recipe! In other news, tomorrow, I’m officially announcing an exciting new project I’ve been working on, going live on YouTube TONIGHT at 8pm, so make sure you’re subscribe to my YouTube channel to get alerted once the video and announcement is posted (announcement will be in the description of the video, but I’ll announce it on the blog tomorrow!)

Can’t wait to share with you what I’ve been working on behind the scenes…

  1. Looks simple and wonderful. And, per usual, I am in awe of your plating. Do you share how you get your veggie noodles so perfectly twirled, or is it a trade secret? ;-) Hehe!
  2. Is that supposed to be sesame oil? Or is sesame soil something I haven't heard of yet??
    • I think sesame soil is like sesame oil, only it has lots more fiber! Ha! (Typos happen, it's why I'm gainfully employed as a copy editor/proofreader for an advertising agency!)
  3. Ali- do you use toasted sesame oil or regular in your recipe? Looks fabulous, I'm going to try it this weekend!
  4. Ali, my spiralizer has three blades. Will you please show me a pic of the "D" blade. Thanks
    • Carol, the spiralizer that Ali sells has 4 different blades... the ones purchased from other sources that look quite abit like hers have only three blades... when she calls for Blade D, just use Blade C. Hope this helps...
  5. Michele Pryse :
    Made this tonight to pack in my and hubby's lunches tomorrow. It came together in less than 5 minutes and tastes great!
  6. To get spiralized carrot noodles I usually have to get large ones to spiralize, seated and anchored properly, unfortunately they are usually held-over last fall's harvest,big but dried out etc. Fresh young new carrots are much smaller (although juicer and better tasting) but they don't spiralize very well! What, do we now need... a Mini-spiralizer?!
  7. Where do you find sesame soil?
  8. Hi Ali, where is your recipe for the cheese sauce you did with nutrtional yeast and cauliflower. This recipe is delicious and quick too!!!
  9. I made this the other night and my 'meat and potatoes' man loved it. I added some cooked ground free range elk and I fried the noodles for 2-3 mins to make it more of a stir fry vs a salad. Loved it. Thanks so much.
