This is the first dish I ever made with my spiralizer. I had high hopes for the experiment and boy, it delivered!
This dish is a winner on so many levels. I looks great, tastes fabulous and the noodle texture is incredibly satisfying; it really does feel like a cooked meal. It’s such a fun dish to share. If you decide to include some nuts, like my suggested cashews, it can easily be a filling, satisfying and incredibly healthy main meal.
I’d certainly recommend it if you want to create a special raw celebration dish, fancy treating yourself to something a bit more special one evening, or if you want to impress non-raw friends.
We're not too crazy about winter squash at home, but everybody loved this recipe! I made it again today for lunch, this time using oranges and replacing the cacao nibs by chopped black olives, and it was a hit again.
My boyfriend bought me a Vita-Mix for Christmas, and I would have opened it on Christmas had the deliveryperson followed directions and didn't leave it on the front stoop for me to run into when I came home :(
This recipe was adapted from the Vita-Mix website (http://vitamix.ahoy.com/recipe/recipe.cgi/0/122/). He had no idea I 'tweaked' it; I fed it to my SAD friends and they LOVED it. Just in time for winter, too!
I wanted a lighter tortilla that wasn’t full of buckwheat and wasn’t made entirely out of flax seeds… and I had leftover veggies from making noodles so I used them up and these came out nicely!
