Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! I’ve just gotten back from New Hampshire, where I spent the weekend with my parents. They have a lovely little house up near Keene, and we love escaping to the land of wide open spaces and starry night skies. My parents’ house doesn’t have internet and has terrible cell service, so it’s really a complete cut-off from technology. It’s nice to take a break from all that, though. As a blogger you continually have to be present on social media, and it can get exhausting after a while. So it was nice to not be able to check on my blog while I was up there!
Unfortunately we had to cut our trip short because my mom got injured while walking the dogs. My parents’ dog (Scout) gets really excited and aggressive when he thinks other dogs are around. My mom was walking him on a rope instead of a leash, and the rope got caught around her foot. Scout, of course, at that moment decided to run after another dog he heard in the street, pulling my mom’s leg out from under her. My poor mom got a terrible rope burn on her ankle and pulled her hamstring very badly. She can barely walk, so I’m going to go home tomorrow and take care of her while my dad’s at work.
This noodle bowl here is very representational of what I’ve been craving lately – fresh, produce-driven meals that are light yet still flavorful. I love making noodles with my spiralizer because they’re so fun to eat, and the fact that they’re noodles encourages me to eat more whatever vegetable I’ve used. This bowl combines daikon, beet, and carrot noodles, providing a powerhouse punch of nutrients and vitamins. It’s topped with a spicy tahini sauce that’s mouthwateringly good. I couldn’t stop sneaking little tastes while I was assembling the bowls! I hope you all love it!

Putting it All Together

I hope your mom’s okay! I had a similar situation happen to my arm a couple years back. My dog took off, and, I’ll leave out the gory details, I ended up with a major rope burn. And can you believe that I have owned a spiralizer and have not used it yet? It has been a year! Thanks for the inspiration. I need to get after it! :-)
SarahMarch 13, 2016 at 9:11 pm
Thanks Jayme!! And you’ve gotta use that spiralizer, girl! I’d recommend starting with zucchini, they’re the easiest to make into noodles! :D
ErinMarch 14, 2016 at 8:07 am

I love how simple these noodle bowls are. It is pretty cool what an inspiralizer can do. Another kitchen gadget that I gotta get! I have been going bowl crazy this year. But sometimes instead of normal noodles you just want bright and fresh things! Pinning this for later for sure.
SarahMarch 14, 2016 at 3:23 pm
Thanks Linda!! And you should definitely get a spiralizer… it’s so much fun to use :)

What is the name of the spiralizer you use. I have a hand held model, which is rubbish for beets, radishes etc Your dish looks awesome and I’d love to try it!
Wishing your mom a speedy recovery. ?

Thank you so much for your kind sentiments, Valerie-Anne! My spiralizer is made by Paderno, which you can purchase on Amazon. :)

[…] Spicy Root Vegetable Bowl So I completely messed up this recipe. I made the dressing, but for some reason it went MIA. When I went to actually put it on the salad., it was gone. My only guess was I tossed it out when I was cleaning the fridge out. I didn’t have another lemon or lime, so I had to make up something. I wasn’t in the least disappointed with my creation! This salad was sooooo good. Josh nor I expected for it to be as good as it turned out. The dressing I ended up using was honey, apple cider vinegar, and whole grain mustard. Win! The macros on this salad were awesome and it tasted great! I have never had raw beets spiralized, but they were great. Took some muscle to spiralize all the veggies, but it was well worth it. […]

We made this and it was amazing- my family doesn’t do well without a meat option so I paired it with a grilled lemongrass chicken. My teenagers who I struggle to get them to eat well loved it.
SarahJune 29, 2022 at 3:06 pm
So glad the whole fam liked this recipe, Melissa! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review :)
