Nutty Carrot Noodle Recipe That’s Bursting With Flavor!

It’s likely you’ve heard of zucchini noodles (“zoodles”), since they have become a very popular gluten-free (and healthier) alternative to wheat-based pasta.

But have you heard of carrot noodles? OMG, they are so satisfying and delicious!

That’s why I’m super excited to share this simple, mouth-watering carrot noodle recipe with you in hopes that you’ll give them a try (if you haven’t already).

This recipe is BURSTING with flavor and is loaded with clean, health-enhancing ingredients. It’s nutty, refreshing and very filling.

HEADS UP: You’ll need a vegetable spiralizer to turn your carrots into noodles. I use and love this one, which you can score HERE on amazon.

Or, you can simply use a vegetable peeler to shave them into ribbons. They won’t be as “pasta-like” this way, but you’ll still get the delicious flavor experience.

Now let’s do this!
