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!

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:

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
