Thai Almond Sweet Potato Noodles

Thai Almond Coconut Sweet Potato Noodles Caras Kitchen

Its time to use that spiralizer again. I seriously can’t get enough of it these  days and eating something in noodle form is just more fun isn’t it? Atleast I think so. Even saying the word noodle is kinda fun. nooooodle. Ya know? (not adultish). If there is one thing the paleo and gluten free diet produced that I am thankful for its the idea to turn vegetables into noodles. I’m a big fan.

Holiday Kale Salad with Fennel, Sweet Potato, Apple and Pomegranate

Winter Kale Salad 058 #vegan #glutenfree #kale

Over the last 9 years I have been living apart from my immediate family spending 8 of them in Los Angeles and 1 in Melboune, Australia. There have been many years where I haven’t made it home for the holidays for various reasons including school, work, boyfriends or because sometimes going home for the holiday’s is difficult. Like many, my parents are divorced and figuring out which parent to spend what holidays with isn’t always easy. On the upside, so many people I know and love in LA also don’t go home for the holidays so there is always a friends-giving or gathering of the like so I’ve never felt like I missed out. However this Thanksgiving I am traveling with my dad back to Chicago to see the extended family- cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. My traditional Italian family is not very vegan or vegetarian friendly so I have been thinking a lot about what I want to contribute to the meal and this kale salad recipe is a serious contender.

Spiced Sweet Potatoes with Cashew Supreme and Cilantro

spiced sweet potatoes

 

I love poatotes of all kinds, and have overwhelming gratitude for all the wonderful things they give us. I mean think about it, potatoes give us vodka, french fries, hashbrowns, chips, and latkes to name a few. This recipe is so easy to whip up and I love anything with cashew sour cream. You could use this easy recipe for the sour cream on tacos, roasted corn, mango and avocado salad, nachos, or a burrito bowl but topped over these sweet potatoes is to-die-for. These are perfect as a snack, or used a side dish along another dish. I hope you enjoy.
