Beet noodles baked with tomatoes, red onion, olives and Feta. Serve this as an appetizer with some baked pita chips, as a side dish or even as a main dish, topped with grilled shrimp or chicken – this dish is a keeper!
I think most of you know I'm pretty obsessed with my spiralizer, (I LOVE my Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer) but my friend Ali is even more obsessed than me, if that's even possible. So obsessed, she devoted her entire blog to this gadget and just came out with a cookbook that you will need to get your hands on! The book is called Inspiralized: Turn Vegetables into Healthy, Creative, Satisfying Meals, and it's only 15.47 on Amazon! Tons of great spiralized ideas, everything from breakfast to dessert – the girl is a spiralizing genius!
I had a hard time deciding what to make first, but since I typically make spiralized zucchini and cucumber dishes with my spiralizer, so I chose a dish using beets instead. As a kid, I hated beets because I only tasted the pickled kind, that came in a jar. As an adult, I started enjoying them roasted in salads, and even discovered how delicious they are raw. Here, the beets are spiralized, tossed with vinegar, oil and herbs and roasted for 20 minutes. Once roasted, the beets are tender yet firm, exactly how I like my vegetables. If you're unsure about beets, I know this dish will convert you!
The only changes I made to her recipe was using less cheese, I cut the block in half horizontally and it was still more than plenty.
Oh and one more thing, I am giving 1 cookbook away this week! For a chance to win, leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite spiralized vegetable recipe is! Good luck! Ends February 24, 2015 US and CA.
