When my mum asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I think she thought I was joking when the first thing I said was a julienne peeler *what has my daughter become?!*. It was one of my favorite presents…..until I came across Ali’s blog, and discovered the wondrous spiralizer!!! My julienne peeler seemed so weak compared to this giant mesmerizing machine! However, for now I have put away my dreams of a spiralizer, and I am loving using my julienne peeler! I saw on a blog a few weeks ago that you could make sweet potatoes into noodles using it, so thought I would give it a try with a stir fry!
It was delicious, fun, and easy! Not to mention nutritious! Just look at that rainbow of colors 🙂 I covered my stir fry with this Thai Peanut Sauce from Gimme Some Oven. This is one of those meals that can be eaten hot or cold, and tastes even better the next day when the flavors have had time to soak in. Get your veggies in with this new twist on a stir fry classic 🙂
- Sweet potatoes are a wonderful recovery food that are great at reducing inflammation in weary muscles. They are also high in lots of vitamins to keep those colds at bay
- Chicken is a lean meat that brings protein to the dish, and is also a natural anti depressant…..important during this never ending winter!
- Red cabbage is also high in Vitamin E, which makes it good at reducing inflammation and supporting your immune system, but it also is a good source of calcium to strengthen your bones
- Edamame is a great source of plant protein, but also contains a high level of antioxidants to reduce toxins in the body
Do you own a spiralizer? What do you like to make with it? Why are julienned vegetables so much more enjoyable than bite sized chunks?
