Pesto & Parmesan Carrot Fettuccini

Pesto & Parmesan Carrot Fettuccini

I stumbled upon this idea to use a vegetable peeler to create fettuccini noodles from carrots on Pinterest. My kids love carrots, so we gave it a try. The result exceeded our expectations. The texture was similar to pasta and the flavor was mild and neutral. We all loved it, teenagers included.

Shave 4-5 large carrots into a stock pot. Use a knife to slice the core into thin pieces. Cover with a bit of water. Steam and stir for about 5 minutes, until desired tenderness is reached. 

Chop some tomatoes and add a can of cannellini (or prefered) beans. 

Meanwhile, make the vegan pesto and Parmesan topping. Pour the pesto over the carrot noodles and sprinkle with the Parmesan. 

You’ll (probably) have leftover Parmesan. Store in the refrigerator and try with other dishes. It is a favorite condiment in our house!

Many vegan pesto recipes leave a lot to be desired. It's hard to beat the alternatives loaded with Parmesan and Romano cheese. This comes really close. The yeast flakes provide the pungency of cheese, and the garlic and red onion add layers of umami. If you have also add your own cheese, yogurt or hummus to kick it up a notch. It's good. Enjoy.

  1. Place all of the ingredients in your food processor. If using a salt based lemon zest, omit the sea salt. Otherwise, grate the skin of an organic lemon with a fine grater. Word of caution: Don’t over-process as nuts will turn into a paste. Use the pulse setting at the end if you have one. 
  2. Store in an air-tight jar in the refrigerator. Add to anything and everything.

Easy Sourdough Bread Recipes

Easy Sourdough Bread Recipes

Colleen: March 68, 2020. 

The Coronavirus quarintine really does feel like Mother Nature is mad and sent us to our rooms. But this isn’t a punishment. It’s a wake up call. We cannot continue to be “too busy” to take care of ourselves, each other and the planet. That’s not going to work. While we will emerge from our homes at some point, we can’t go back to business as usual–lest we find ourselves right back in our rooms–and worse.

We’ve been forced to take a break from the fast-food culture. We’ve cooked more meals at home in the past month than we have in a year. Hopefully, you’re finding some new habits and recipes that will stick with you.

Let me tell you why you should try your hand at homemade sourdough bread. I’ve been making it for four years. It has not gone to my waist–despite the fact that I’m a 46 year-old female. Properly fermented sourdough doesn’t make you fat. The long fermentation process breaks down the gluten and anti-nutrients. It has a low glycemic index and doesn’t spike your blood sugar. Natural, wild yeast boost immunity, reduce allergy symptoms and enhance nutrient absorption. They are both pre- and probiotic. In contrast, commercial yeasts are associated with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, acid-reflux, diabetes and wheat allergies. They are foreign to our digestive and immune systems.

This recipe is no-knead, no fuss and no mess. It takes time, but very little effort. If you don’t know anyone with a starter, I can show you how to make your own in one week. To help you through the process, I’ve created a free step-by-step guide for download, and two videos. I’ve walked many people through the process. I can help you too.
