Butternut Squash Soba Noodles with Sesame Broccoli and Baked Salmon

I’m a big fan of Danielle Walker’s cookbook and food blog, Against All Grain. Not only does she whip up some incredibly healthy Paleo and gluten-free recipes, she’s a mother and wife. Plus, she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area (uhm, totally jealous about that). Her health story is inspirational, so make sure you check that out on her blog. It’s no wonder she’s on the New York Times Bestsellers List

Obviously, when she reached out to me and invited me to guest post on her blog, I was all sorts of giddy. I’m happy to make a recipe for her loyal readers but also, I’m excited to introduce her to my readers (in case you don’t know of her already!)

Before I forget, check out my recipe on her blog, posted Wednesday!

Like me, Danielle’s a self-taught cook. When I decided to pursue Inspiralized, I thought to myself, “hmm.. should I go to culinary school?” Then I immediately thought, “well, what would that do for me?” Since I’m not currently in school, you can guess that I came to the conclusion that being a great cook doesn’t require going to school. I think that some people are born with a creativity and a determination when it comes to food. If you don’t really like cooking the same thing twice, you can relate.

Actually, Lu jokes around with me about my disinterest in leftovers. I rather finish a double portion than put it in the refrigerator for “next time.” He manages to bring it up when we’re out with friends, teasing me. In the end, he wins – he eats something new most nights!

Sure, I could learn how to mince garlic a bit quicker. I could learn proper temperatures for cooking meats. I could whisk eggs better. I could, I could, I could. Maybe one day. For now, Inspiralized is my school! 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely a “go to” dish sort of gal. I just tweak it each time – kale instead of spinach, shrimp instead of tofu, tomato sauce instead of pesto.

And that’s my schpeel. Back to the recipe… seriously, read all about it on Against All Grain today. Butternut squash noodles are quickly becoming a new favorite – I’m going to be sad to see them go once zucchinis are back! 

Here’s a video tutorial for how to spiralize butternut squashes (they’re a bit tricky!)

I just found your blog through the Lean Green Bean's blog. I love it!! We've actually been recently trying veggie noodles at home using a julienne peeler and they are so delicious. We've been trying to find more recipes, and I can't wait to try some of yours! Beautiful pictures as well!
Thanks Emily! You are so sweet - make the leap to a spiralizer and you'll never look back!
This is such a beautiful and healthy dish! I love the vibrant colors. Looks so good that I would feel bad eating it!
Thanks!! It is very pretty - but worth ruining to eat! :)

I love your blog! I recently picked up the spiralizer and while it works great with zukes, I couldn't get it to work with the butternut squash. I followed your instructions (and video) and it doesnt seem to want to slice the squash into strands. I just get large round slices. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Thank you!
Perhaps your butternut squash pieces are too large? Sometimes putting in a lot of elbow grease can make all the difference! Some noodles will stick together, you just have to pull them apart. Happy spiralizing !

VEGETARIAN ZUCCHINI & QUINOA LASAGNA, a fan favorite 👏🏼😍 the zucchini cooks to just al dente for a real lasagna-like texture and the quinoa gives this vegetarian dish a burst of protein and texture. I love making this during the summertime with fresh zucchinis and basil, but it’s amazing year round ☀️ grab the recipe up on the blog! ⁣

the crib to bed and the nap to quiet time transitions all happened within a month or so of each other for us and today on the blog, I’m sharing all about how we got through them smoothly-ish 🤪 also, as just a general thought, all of these baby and toddler transitions tend to be “easier” than we hype them up to be. I think the anxiety of the unknown makes them scarier than they are! anyway, you can check the post out on the blog today for all the details! it’s a quick but to-the-point post ✌🏼 ⁣

and not to contradict myself 🙈, but I need all the tips for putting toddlers together in the same room, which I’m going to have to do soon, so we can start preparing the twins’ nursery (we’re planning on moving Luca into Roma’s room and using Luca’s room for the twins, because it’s larger.) moms/dads who have done it - what’s the secret?! 🤔⁣
