Carrot Noodles with Red Pepper Sauce

This raw red pepper sauce is delicious, healthy and super easy to make – just throw all the ingredients into a blender and it is good to go! It can be used as a sauce, a dip for veggies, chips/crackers, or as a salad dressing.

Shepherd peppers are not just sweet but also packed with vitamins and nutrients which seem to have nice side effects: increasing one’s libido and building collagen 😉 – so they say.

Just half a cup of sliced red pepper meets a quarter of the recommended adult daily dose of Vitamin A and almost the total recommended adult daily dose of Vitamin C, all for just 12 calories – and no fat or cholesterol. Red bell peppers are also high in carotenoids, which provide a healthy dose of fiber.

The noodles are made of carrots, but you can also use squash or zucchini. There are quite a few ways you can turn carrots into noodles. Some people use julienne peelers. You can also use an ordinary potato peeler.

The most popular tool with which to make vegetable noodles is a Vegetable Spiralizer (special spiral vegetable cutter). I’ve been using my mandolin. When using a mandolin, use the thickest blade setting possible.
