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!

Spiralized Parsnip Noodles with Roasted Butternut Squash, Kale and Feta

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cubed butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil divided
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 parsnips peeled, Blade D, noodles trimmed
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 1 garlic clove sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes to garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay out the butternut squash. Drizzle with 2 teaspoons of the oil and season with salt, pepper and paprika. Toss to combine and once oven is preheated, roast for 30-35 minutes or until fork tender.
  • Ten minutes before the squash is done, place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in the rest of the olive oil. Add in the parsnip noodles and let cook for 5-7 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer the parsnip noodles to a plate and add in the kale and garlic. Let cook until wilted, about 5 minutes and then add back in the parsnip noodles. Toss to combine and then divide onto two plates and top with butternut squash, feta and the red pepper flakes.

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:

making a batch of this VEGAN PUMPKIN SNACKING LOAF today 🍞! I love to have a few mini loafs in the freezer to easily defrost for breakfasts or snacks for the kids, but also for myself - slathered with nut butter and a little sprinkle of hemp seeds 🥜 or some honey, butter and cinnamon for the kids 🍯🧈  ⁣

grab the recipe on the blog! happy monday! 🙌🏼⁣

went for a nice long walk outside with the kids (we haven’t been able to do that for a while, because it’s just been so freezing and/or snowing) 🥶 and then we decided to pick up some to-go sandwiches and while we waited, the kids had some banana bread and juice 🍊🍌🍞 luca said, “mama I want to stay here alllll day!” which made me feel sad, because we haven’t felt comfortable dining indoors yet, and I’m sure he misses the people watching at restaurants on the weekends 😔 it’s okay, I’m just filing this under “things we get to look forward to when it’s safe again” 💋 #jerseycity ...

a year and 5 days ago, I started @invisalign to correct my cross bite and fix some crowding on my lower teeth. 👄🦷 a few weeks into treatment, my dentist gave me some extra aligners (the clear trays that you wear that miraculously shift your teeth) “just in case” the Corona virus came to the US and the office has to shutdown. well, a LOT has happened in this past year (my teeth and bite have corrected and Corona certainly made its way here!) and today was the final appointment to perfect my teeth and bite with some veneers (which I haven’t quite gotten used to yet, but all of the stories you shared and kind compliments you gave in my DMs has made me feel A LOT better.) 😬⁣

in two weeks, I get my overnight retainers, which I’ll wear forever (but only to sleep.) aside from that, I’m done with #invisalign and it feels SO good. I cannot believe how drastically it has changed my face, and when I watch myself talk in a video or look at a photo of myself, I no longer cringe at my lisp or how crooked my face looks. it wasn’t something I was self-conscious of every day, but it’s definitely something that I noticed when looking at photos and it secretly bothered me. it’s silly, but it did! ⁣

now I can proudly say that I love my smile, and I feel more confident than ever. it’s a shame I’ll have to wear a mask and cover up this expensive smile 😂😂😂😂 but hopefully in 2022, I’ll be able to fully whip it out. right?!! 🤞🏼💉 ⁣

I’m going to write a blog post all about the process, share a ton of before and afters, but I wanted to ask.... are there any questions you have specifically that you’d like me to include/address? leave a comment below and let me know! and in the meantime, you can check out my Invisalign highlight for the whole journey!
