Turnip 'Noodles' With Roasted Garlic-Pepper Sauce.

We have been exploring new possibilities to make our raw 'noodles' and our latest find is turnip. Turnip has this crispy and juicy texture which makes it perfect for raw eating. A raw sauce or dressing would have been good, but the taste and smell of roasted garlic and pepper was so irresistible that I went with it.

For noodles:

  • Purple turnips - 2 medium
  • Lemon juice - 2 Tbs.
  • EV Olive oil - 1 Tbs.
  • Peel turnips and slice using a spirooli or spiral slicer into thin noodles.
  • Toss with lemon juice and olive oil and keep aside for about 30 minutes or so.

For the sauce:

  • Yellow or orange bell pepper - 1
  • Tomato -1
  • Garlic -2 cloves
  • Red chilly - 1 -2 as per spice level
  • Sea salt as pet taste
  • EV olive oil - 2 Tbs.
  • Cut the bell pepper, tomato and garlic  into big chunks and lay on a cookie sheet and drizzle 1 tsp of olive oil and roast in toaster oven at 370 degree for 10 minutes.
  • Let it cool down a little bit and blend everything along with red chilly, salt and the remaining olive oil to a nice and creamy sauce.
  • Toss the 'noodles' with the sauce and serve with salad greens or sautéed vegetables on the side.
