Spiralized Parsnip Noodles with Roasted Butternut Squash, Kale and Feta

I have a very, very good reason for not posting this recipe in the morning, like I normally do.

…. I turned in the manuscript to my second cookbook today! #inspiralizeeverything, coming soon.

And you’d think I’d feel relieved, but I’ve been putting off SO many things the past few days in order to finish in time, that I’m swamped!

Spiralized Parsnip Noodles with Roasted Butternut Squash, Kale and Feta

Sorry for the late and short post, but I just couldn’t leave a day without a new recipe for you all! And now, it’s 2016 and we have our first parsnip noodle recipe – which, if you haven’t had them yet, parsnip noodles are nutty, woody and so lovely that you don’t need much of a sauce- their flavors speak for themselves.

This recipe is simple, quick and easy – and comes together in minutes!

And although I have a busy week ahead, you can bet your bottom dollar that I’ll be rejoicing/face-planting in a big goblet of wine when everything is done… around Friday at 5pm.

Who’s with me? Let’s DO this week!

Congratulations! Yay wine!
This is so awesome, so proud of you!! Can't wait to snag a copy! And good luck girl, you've got this!
Ann G says:
Congratulations! What a great way to start out 2016. Here's to getting to Friday :)
Cathy says:
Congratulations! I am looking forward to the new cookbook - *and* to joining you virtually in that glass of wine on Friday! :)
Amy says:
I'm curious why this is so many smart points. When I add it up it comes closer to 8 per serving. The parsnips, olive oil and feta is all that I counted. Are your parsnips huge? I will make it, but attempt to lower the SP with less EVOO and reduced fat feta.
Judi Gross says:
Two questions: Where should the blade letter show, too? What's the best way for a lefty to use the spiralizer?
Sarah says:
Hi Ali, This sounds delicious! I would just suggest a slight rewrite in step 2 you have written: Transfer the parsnip noodles to a plate and add in the kale and garlic. It took me a few reads to understand that the kale and garlic go in the pan and not onto the plate (I was a little puzzled how the plate was gonna wilt the kale). Just a little suggestion. Can't wait to try it!
Karen says:
Oh yowza! Does that look divine or what? I could even see some goat cheese in place of the feta -- although I love feta! I could also see some grilled flank steak along side, or even some chicken! Looking forward to your new cookbook! Enjoy that wine on Friday -- I think I will be having some brandy in hot tea with all the snow out west!
Ana says:

hi! 👋🏼 just checking in! twins are doing so well, their little personalities are really shining through. and they’re getting so big, they barely fit on my chest together anymore 😭😭 (rio is almost 11 pounds and sol is almost 10!) they’re sleeping almost 5 hours at night which gives me some rest in between nursing sessions (if I’m lucky enough that one of my older kids doesn’t wake up in between that time 🤦🏻‍♀️.) as for me, I’m coming out of the newborn fog 🙏🏼 the hardest part has been dividing my time between all FOUR of my kids, honestly. I’ll never get it right 😏 today I had my 6 week postpartum check up and I guess everything is back where it’s supposed to go 😅 because I got the green light to resume normal life again, but can we be honest…. with twin newborns, I’m in no rush to 🏋🏻‍♀️ or 🍆 , ya know? ...

the soup that broke the internet! 😜🥣haha, just kidding, but after posting this on stories, my DMs were flooded with, "share the recipe!" and then dozens of you made the soup solely based off my story videos (which is why I shared it!)⁣ 👏🏼

I'm still deep in the newborn fog to take proper photos and build an SEO-friendly blog post (it's an hours-long process), so I'm sharing it here in the meantime - just save it to refer back to! you're going to want to make this alllll winter long.⁣ ❄️

potato and brussels sprouts white bean soup w/ or w/o chicken sausage⁣ 👇🏼
serves 4-6

ingredients⁣
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
1/2 red onion, diced⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
2 carrots, diced⁣
1 large celery rib, diced⁣
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary⁣
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme⁣
4 cups vegetable broth (I'm using @bonafideprovisions and it's honestly a game-changer! code INSPIRALIZED for 15% off!)⁣
salt and pepper⁣
1 1/2 pound bag creamer potatoes, halved⁣
1 pound chicken sausage, sliced⁣
12 ounces shredded brussels sprouts⁣
shredded Parmesan cheese (I'm loving @foragerproject's vegan Parmesan shreds)⁣
red pepper flakes to garnish⁣

directions⁣
heat half the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. add the onion, garlic, carrots, and celery and cook for 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. add the cannellini beans, rosemary, thyme, and stir. add the broth, 2 cups water, and season generously with salt and pepper. bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. use an immersion blender to blend the soup. add the potatoes, bring back to a boil, and reduce heat to a medium-simmer and let cook for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.⁣

while potatoes cook, heat the remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add the chicken sausage and cook until browned. add the brussels sprouts, season with salt and pepper, and cook until sprouts are tender and chicken is cooked through. keep aside. if you're vegetarian, just simply omit chicken sausage.⁣

once potatoes are done, add the chicken and sprouts to the soup, stir, and serve. top with cheese and red pepper flakes.
