Rainbow Carrot Noodles with Yuzu Miso Sauce
Difficulty 5 minutes Serves 1-2
It's time to dust off those spiralizers and take advantage of all of the beautiful heirloom carrots now available at the farmer's market. This dressing recipe by Chris Anca of Tales of a Kitchen is a simple blend of flavor-packed ingredients like miso, ginger and yuzu juice, a sour type of citrus found in Asia. If you cannot get your hands on yuzu or bottled yuzu juice, the recipe works well with lime juice or even lemon combined with orange juice.
Ingredients 3 medium carrots (different colours if available, but regular carrots will do just fine)
1/3 cup hemp hearts
1 TBSP white miso
4 TBSP yuzu juice (or lime or lemon)
1 tsp maple syrup
1 cm piece of ginger
a drop of sesame oil
2 TBSP water
To serve: lime wedges, fresh basil, mint, toasted sesame seeds and extra hemp hearts
Directions 1. Begin by making the dressing. Add all the ingredients to a small blender and blitz until you get a smooth creamy sauce. Scoop it into a medium sized bowl.
2. Spiralize the carrots and add the spirals to the sauce. Depending on what spiralizer you use, you might have the carrot cores leftover
