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

  • Ten minutes before the squash is done, place a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in the rest of the olive oil.

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:

super easy lunch idea, made (almost) entirely from the freezer and 100% from @wholefoodsmarket, so next time you go there to shop, grab the following items and make this Teriyaki Tofu and Pepper Riced Cauliflower Stir Fry👇🏼👇🏼

~ frozen riced cauliflower, stir fry style⁣
~ frozen three pepper blend (sliced bell peppers)⁣
~ organic teriyaki sauce⁣
~ @wildwoodfoods teriyaki baked tofu⁣
~ for garnish: white sesame seeds, red pepper flakes⁣

heat a tablespoon of neutral oil in a medium skillet. add the bag of riced cauliflower and sauté until softened to your preference (about 5 minutes for rice-like, IMHO.) set the cauliflower aside in a bowl. add a couple handfuls of bell pepper strips and half the package of tofu, cubed. pour over some teriyaki sauce (I use about 1/3 cup), stir, and let cook until peppers are totally soft, another 3 to 5 minutes. top the riced cauliflower with the teriyaki tofu and peppers. garnish with sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. enjoy!⁣ 🥡

probably my favorite part of parenthood is seeing life through my children’s’ eyes. everything is new and they live a life of exciting discovery. and nothing beats the merriment of Christmastime! 🎄🎅🏻 luca and roma had a blast ice skating today in NYC - luca got the hang of it quickly and he loved pushing roma on the little plastic bear seats they had at @rinkatbrookfieldplacenyc. ⛸❄️ the twins were angels and slept the whole time, so I could be present with my older kids. 👼🏻👼🏻

and we’re building a holiday bucket list calendar, what should we add to it (aside from meeting santa? 😉)

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you
