WHAT I SPIRALIZED LAST NIGHT

Once I had my Saladacco in my kitchen, I could not stop until I had spiralized every single spiralizable thing in the kitchen. I had a totally spiralized dinner.

First I spiralized two zucchinis and set them aside.

I made my basic sauce (I have to work on getting it less thick, I think, but, as thick as it is, when I am tired of sauce, it is easy to dehydrate quickly into patties)

MY SPAGHETTI SAUCE
1 C almonds, soaked at least 4 hours (or overnight)
@ 1 T extra virgin olive oil
@ 1/2 t Tabasco (or apple cider vinegar)
@ 1 T vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
(yes, I give the recipe, no, not totally raw)
@ 2 C dehydrated tomato “flakes”
(I blended tomatoes then dehydrated them),
soaked in water to cover
Italian seasoning (or oregano) to taste
garlic to taste

  • In a food processor, grind the almonds fine (alternatively, homogenize them in a Champion juicer with the blank plate)
  • Add remaining ingredients, and process until well blended.

I set that aside.

MY SALAD
Then I spiralized a beet, a turnip, a carrot, and a small daikon
(about 6 inches long)
I tapenaded three big red lettuce leaves (roll up leaves to a
fat cigar shape, then finely slice, then chop through the rounds
once or twice)
I combined the spiralized root vegetables and the lettuce shreds,
and added some olive oil, Spike, finely minced garlic, and
apple cider vinegar…

I put the spiralized zucchini on the plates and topped it with about 3 T of the sauce.
Then I filled up the rest of the space on the plate with the salad.

Now I have to get some more spiralizable vegetables. MUST SPIRALIZE. AM VERY HAPPY.

SWEET GROUND TURNIPS

I haven’t found any turnip recipes elsewhere yet, so I made this one:

1-1/2 turnips (I had a big one and a small one about 1/2 the size)
1/4 onion
1 t apple cider vinegar (or more to taste, for sweetness)

  • Finely grind the turnips and the onion in a food processor.
  • Add apple cider vinegar and mix well.

EAT

You could do the same with beets.  You could even combine beets, turnips, and maybe carrots.  If you fancy, you could add herbs or garlic. This could be part of a salad, or you could wrap it in a leaf, if it is dry enough.
