Spicy Garlic Potato Noodles, Chorizo, Parsley and White Beans

Last weekend, Lu and I drove to Storm King, NY and visited the Storm King Art Center, which is an outdoor sculpture “park.”

You basically walk around a park, looking at art installations. It was pretty cool – it’s different than something we’ve ever done together. While the art didn’t WOW me, it was interesting and pretty amazing that these artists got their sculptures up there.

Also, it was nice to take a road trip! Definitely a fall bucket list item checked off.

After we worked up an appetite walking around, we drove 15 minutes away to a town called Beacon, which we kind of fell in love with. It was adorable aesthetically – cute shops, restaurants and architecture.

We stopped at a restaurant that’s right next to a waterfall, which was so picturesque. We were just typical lovebirds, drinking wine, having a late lunch and — ya ya I know, I know, you’re all rolling your eyes.

There’s a point to this story.

While we were at this waterfall restaurant (called The Roundhouse), we ordered Sauvignon Blancs and this incredible octopus, chorizo and white bean appetizer that was heavenly.


It was spicy, flavorful and had such amazing textures, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, especially when we were in bumper to bumper traffic getting back home.

In the end, Lu actually gave the suggestion that I make an Inspiralized version. Of course, you can’t spiralize octopus, chorizo or white beans, so I simply added in big parsley leaves and spiralized potatoes to turn this appetizer into a fulfilling main course or a heavy starter.

The spiciness can be kicked up a notch with a squirt of hot sauce or some crushed red chili pepper flakes, if you’re into spicy foods.

Also, don’t let the potatoes turn you off if you’re on a low-carb diet – just swap zucchini noodles in for potato noodles. You’ll fall in love with this dish, just as Lu and I did.

Speaking of Lu, it’s his 36th birthday! Woohoo. Happy Birthday, Lu. Cheers to you inspiring this great recipe!

Here’s a picture of me and the birthday boy last weekend, in Beacon, right after stuffing our faces at that restaurant:

Am loving these recipes! Have bought the machine, will try it for 1st time today. Exciting! My question is, do you see a way to use this approach with food not served immediately? In church outreach, I feed about 25 people -- the meal sits for a couple of hours till end of service, and I want to enjoy the service myself -- not fuss with food up to the last minute. Making ahead, freezing/ reheating also highly helpful. Congratulations on blessing the world with some terrific out-of-the-box thinking!

This dish sounds wonderful. I'm really glad you didn't put octopus in it, because that's something I'm not fond of… Happy birthday to Lu!

What would I do differently if I wanted to use zucchini noodles? Where can I find your weight loss story?
Anne says:
This looks so yummy and it's finally cooling off in SoCal this weekend so it's now on the menu!
Lindsay says:
I would love a weekly blog post! I follow you on Instagram and love seeing your progress. Keep it up!
Lauren says:
I can't wait to make this! Have you ever tried cooking with octopus? I'd love to try and make the original version, but have no experience with octopus and don't know how difficult it is to cook.
Lise Rousseau Silva says:
Am enjoying lurking on your site and awaiting my own spiralizer! in the mean time, in more than one recipe you refer to chorizo...are you meaning the Portuguese sausage or the Mexican one? Thanks for the inspiration.
I use Spanish chorizo brand, but any type of spicy chorizo will work!
cindy rogers says:
This looks delicious. I wonder how it would taste with sweet potatoes? I'm thinking it'd be divine.
Jennifer says:
Looks delicious! What is a substitute for the white beans? I'm not a fan of them.
You can use another type of bean or perhaps add corn!
Angie Bennett says:
I can't wait to try this one! Love that bag!
lovely photo of you two! I also cannot wait to make this dish! Potatoes are my weakness- And chorizo yum. I am Portuguese and that dish with the octopus totally reminds me of something my family would make!
Kodomojanai says:
Hi. I've been trying your recipes and this is the first time I'm attempting this recipe. I'm not that great at cooking and so need a fair bit of extra guidance. How do I tell if the potatoes are cooked through? Are they not supposed to be crunchy anymore? I'm eating a few bit and even the smaller pieces are still crunchy after the 5-7 minutes prescribed above.
Diane R says:
I just tried this tonight. Loved it, but next time I would use loose sausage and sweet potato. I found the white potato a bit bland with the white beans.
this is a great recipe. top marks, Thanks for sharing. Simon
Reeya says:
I've made this twice now, and it is absolutely delicious! My only recommendation is to increase the number of potatoes to 2, as it does feel a bit more like a stir fry than a "noodle" dish
Woody Joyner says:
Great recipe. Added 1 medium red bell pepper, spiralized and trimmed to the potato noodles for some added color. Looked awesome on the plate.

remember a couple weeks ago when I sat in front of this same mirror, tucked my long hair into a sweater and debated whether to chop it all off or not? 💇🏻‍♀️ I think we all know what that decision was 🤪⁣

this is still by far the coziest sweater I own and they sell it in a yellow that's perfect for spring and I'm debating whether or not to get it 😬 I've been in a funk all week and can't seem to shake it. retail therapy moment?!⁣

jokes aside, I need a vacation. more specifically, I need 🍹 on a 🏝... anyone else?  ⁣

actually, I put the @oculus goggles on the other night to go to a virtual beach, and I almost started crying... the sounds of the seagulls, the little turtle crawling on the sand, the bright sun, the sounds of the waves crashing, the white stand, the wind and the palm trees.... I had no idea how therapeutic the ocean and the beach are for me!⁣

I've thought a lot about where our first "trip" will be once it's safe to travel again, and I've decided on a beach resort. will you do something adventurous or something lazy and beachy? http://liketk.it/39bMq #liketkit @liketoknow.it
