Do you have a spiralizer?

You know those kitchen gadgets that slices vegetables into noodles?

Well, I have had one for awhile and I highly recommend getting one.

Why?

There is something about eating vegetables as a noodle shape changes the taste of them-seriously.

I was never a big raw zucchini fan but spiralizing into a noodle shape I can eat gobs in my salads or at supper with my homemade meat sauce.

It is a really easy way to get your kids to eat more vegetables too. Nothing like thinly cut ribbons of cucumber or sweet and crunchy jicama to get a kid to eat them.

Instead of just lettuce and cut up cukes in my salads I now add carrot and zucchini zoodles which adds even more fiber to my salads.

So I am sharing a new slaw recipe with you all today but not just an ordinary slaw. One that has jicama, carrot, pear and zucchini zoodles in it plus matchstick pieces of those same ingredients.

I like plating the slaw on a large plate or platter with individual mounds of the various ingredients. It makes for a fun and interesting serving experience.

Two dressings are included in this recipe. One is a lime chive vinaigrette that you can pour half over your slaw ingredients and serve the other half on the side, plus I have a a spicy peanut dressing that I love love!

Add a couple bbq chicken breasts or pork tenderloin to this and you have a low carb healthy meal.

A lot of gluten-free baking tends to be high in starch, so I decided to add brown rice bran to the batter. Adding the bran and shredded carrot and apple lends this muffin to be higher in fibre.

If you are gluten free I am sure you are familiar with their products. They make a variety of gluten free baked goods from muffins, cookies, bagels to bread.
I received a box full of their products and got to work on a new recipe.

In the box were their gluten free pizza crusts and while I normally would make a savory pizza with them I thought I would come up with a sweet dessert pizza recipe.
How does apple crumble pizza sound?
This recipe is dairy free too!

On a previous cookie post I had shared a recipe for vegan caramel and being that I had a bit of caramel left in the refrigerator and apples in the fruit basket I knew what I was going to make with Udi’s gluten free pizza crust.
Once you have made the vegan caramel this pizza recipe is really easy to make.

Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

During the winter season we tend to spend a lot of time inside. As mild as our winter was here in Calgary, it was still winter til the end of March. In fact we got a dump of snow end of March that sent most of us locals out of our mind.
 

 

I love living in Calgary and appreciate so many things here, but the weather in March, April and May can be frustrating. We know in places like Vancouver it’s green, lush, and the tulips are blooming. While I was in Toronto they had fruits and vegetables outside in front of grocery stores with potted plants sprouting lush blooms.
Here, it was beige and that can be dull and depressing.
 

 
However, last week while taking a walk, I saw green grass blades pushing themselves through the beige dead winter grass. Trees in the ravine are starting to grow leaves.
I think Spring is finally here.
 

 
When those sporadic cold days arrive, I throw a warm sweater on, drink a lot of tea and decide what kind of soup I’ll make for supper. Soup warms the soul. Soup doesn’t need to be complicated, it’s not expensive, and acts like a warm blanket.
This is a smooth soup and has a tang because of the apples. Please give it a try and let me know what you think. It would also be a great soup as a starter for dinner. It’s really great with my cheese biscuits or slices of a baguette.
