Different Than the Real Thing, Baby!
… .and different is a good thing! I’ve gotta say, I’m in a pretty committed relationship with my spiralizer. Dr. Will Cole has me off grains for a while as we work on strengthening my digestion, so I’ve been replacing my deep affinity toward pasta with veggie noodles like zucchini and sweet potato. The passionate pasta lover in me blanches to say this, but it’s actually really, really delicious! The veggie noodles are keeping me creative, not to mention adding beautiful color and depth to my dishes. The sweet potato brings a gorgeous sweetness to today’s dish, accompanied with the acidity of the tomatoes and the bite of the red pepper flakes. The fresh basil adds a lovely perfume, topped off with a good kick of sea salt and creamy ghee. It may not be “the real thing,” but dang if it ain’t good!!
Note: You will need a spiralizer, which you can purchase off of Amazon or at Williams-Sonoma.
