Spiraled Carrots with Peanut Vinaigrette, Cilantro and Mint

May 4, 2017

Have you seen spiralized and rice vegetables pop up all over the place? They are fun and delicious and sometimes they can be a good buy in the store and then you get home and don’t know what to do with them. Here is a delicious recipe that was actually inspired by a sample at Trader Joe’s to showcase their Carrot Spirals. They used a jarred dressing with the sample, but I didn’t like all the ingredients so I decided to go home and make my own.

1 box of Trader Joe’s Carrot Spirals (or any spiraled vegetable you can find or make)
1 big handful of cilantro, chopped
1 handful of mint, chopped
1 tsp oil (good olive oil, avocado, or coconut)

For the dressing
2 tbs organic unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter
2 inches of fresh ginger, grated
1 tbs tamari or coconut aminos
1 tsp mirin (rice wine vinegar)
1 tsp water
pinch of red pepper flakes

put all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined.

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the oil and the vegetable of choice. Gently stir until heated through. Off the heat, add the peanut sauce, and fresh herbs.

PS – I think it took me longer to type this recipe than it does to make it 🙂 Enjoy!
