Golden Beet Noodles

I am not a fan of pasta, or any grain-made noodle to be exact.  As a child, I was never a huge fan of spaghetti or mac’n cheese (unlike many kids) and still don’t have any interest in eating those foods to this day.  One type of noodle that I do love: veggie noodles.  Give me zoodles, spiralized carrots or beets and I am one happy girl!  I still have yet to try spiralized squash or broccoli, but that’s at the top of my to-do list.

The recipe I am sharing with you today was inspired by Lindsay, from The Toasted Pine Nut.  She posted a beautiful bowl of spiralized golden beet on her Instagram and right away I knew I needed to get myself a golden beet!

Although you can consume raw beets, I prefer my cooked.  This recipe calls for sauteeing your spiralized beet in a little avocado oil, apple cider vinegar and spices, just enough so that the beet loses a little bit of its crunch and earthy flavor.
