Less carbs. More flavour!
Guess what? Eating healthily no longer means you have to miss out on your favourite noodle / pasta dishes.
We've recently discovered the world of spiraled vegetables( i.e.:Vegettii!) – and we love it!
Using a new & improved peeler you can create vegetable spirals: a tasty alternative to pasta and noodles.
We've been so inspired at Reality Bites by our new toy: the Super Vegetable Peeler; that we created a dish that has become an instant best seller in the café!
Today I’d like to share it with you:
RB’s Thai Zucchini Salad.
3 large zucchinis (approx 800g)
½ red onion finely sliced
1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds
¼ Cup toasted almonds slivers (and a few more to garnish)
½ Cup fresh coriander chopped
Salt to taste
For the Thai Dressing:
2 cloves garlic minced
1 red chili
2 Tbsp ginger, peeled and grated
¼ Cup spring onion
2 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 Tbsp tamari
2 Tbsp peanut, almond or cashew butter
1 Tbsp sesame oil (toasted or untoasted)
Spiral zucchini (To ensure you get your 5-a-day you can also add spiral carrots and/ or red pepper) Toss red onion, almonds and sesame seeds through the zucchini noodles.
For the dressing, throw all the ingredients into a food processor. Pulse to make a smooth dressing. Gently toss the dressing through the zucchini noodles with the coriander (but save some to garnish at the end). Serve with saved coriander and toasted almonds.
You can try the salad at the café – or create your own as we have a limited number of Super Vegetable Peelers in stock!
