Ingredients in Carrot & Cabbage Noodles
These whole30 cabbage noodles are naturally gluten free and have no added sugar. My recipe is made with 5 simple ingredients:
- olive oil
- dried rosemary
This recipe, like most savory recipes, is highly customize-able. All you really need are a couple carrots, cabbage and some oil. The seasonings are optional. But, I strongly recommend using some spices and salt to flavor the noodles.
In addition to the noodles, this Paleo vegetable recipe can be topped with nuts, seeds and dried fruit. I added some dried cranberries, raw pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds to these vegan cabbage noodles and ate them alongside a few boiled eggs.
How to Cook Vegetable Noodles
To make these noodles, you'll need a medium-sized frying pan with a lid. Before cooking the veggie noodles, first peel a large carrot. A simple carrot peeler will do the trick! Then, cut the cabbage into thin strips.
Turn the stove top on and set to medium heat, then add the oil. After letting the pan heat up, add the cabbage and the carrots. Place the lid on the pan and cook on medium heat for 3 minutes.
After 3 minutes, remove the lid and add the rosemary and salt. Cook an additional 3-5 minutes (uncovered), stirring frequently.
You can toppings such as nuts, seeds or dried fruit. I added a handful of dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds.
Plate and serve immediately!
What To Serve with Carrot & Cabbage Noodles
You'll want to add a decent amount of protein to make this a full meal. Anything from salmon to meatballs to eggs would pair well with this Paleo noodle recipe.
How to Store Noodles
These noodles are best eaten right after cooking. Rather than storing pre-cooked veggie noodles, I recommend prepping the noodles beforehand and then cooking them when you're ready to eat.
For example, peel a bunch of carrots and chop a head of cabbage. Store the veggies in an air-tight container in the fridge. Then, take out the veggies and cook just before meal time.
