Beet Noodles

Updated: May 6, 2019

My monochrome menu starts at the beginning of the rainbow with all foods

shades of red.



I love my standing slicer because it can turn any shape vegetable into noodles! That gives me a lot more variety than just zoodles. I shop for the biggest produce so I can make a lot of noodles fast!




This beet noodle dish is vegan, gluten free, basically a multivitamin in a meal, great for physical stamina and natal health.


Just 3 simple ingredients with a few spices of your choice for a quick, easy and healthy meal!



Check out the nutritional profiles of each ingredient and eat with purpose. Everything we need to sustain life is in nature, we just have to know where to look!

After you turn your beets into noodles, roast your peppers and puree your tomatoes. Cook your tomato sauce for 20 minutes and season with salt and red pepper flakes. You can make this dish a cold raw noodle as well with just fresh tomato puree and julienned peppers. I added a sprinkle of tofu crumble to mine for some protein. I encourage you to make this dish personal and only use this as a guideline to build your own creation!
