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!
