Spiralized Parsnip Noodles with Faux Cheese Sauce

By May 21, 2014

If it's noodles you crave but the carbs got ya down, try spiralizing some veggies instead.  The main "pasta" in this dish is spiralized parsnips, but I threw in some Mung Bean black bean noodles for the "black and white effect" and to add some protein since Mung Bean noodles (I hate the name but I love the noodles) have tons of protein and loads of fiber.  Yes, you will need a handy dandy spiralizer kitchen tool for this, but I assure you, it'll be the best $35 you ever spend (check Amazon)!  The "cheese" sauce is simply kabotcha squash, so this dish can be vegan if you omit the chicken.
