Butternut Beet Salad :-)

Butternut Beet Salad

I’ve been trying to cut back on the carbs recently and I’ve been making loads of stuff with the veggie alternatives to pasta, noodles etc. They have the makes such as Squoodles, Courgetti etc – all a bit odd to me, but nevertheless I think they can be used and utilised really well when you are trying to cut back on the carbohydrates.

So with this in mind  I developed  a warm (ish) salad type dish. With butternut squash noodles,  beetroot and feta – yum! I love beetroot and feta as a combination. I also love beetroot and Goats cheese too, so you could try that if you prefer!

Get your Spiralizer at the ready 🙂 Or pop down to the supermarket and buy them already spiralled! Butternut Beet Salad here we go!

Have a go and let me know

Ingredients

The quantities are up to you really – no hard or fast rules – this is what I did:

  • 1/2 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • Butternut Squash Noodles (spiralised Butternut squash – I bought mine for a £1 in M&S and also in Tesco’s)
  • Handful of spinach leaves
  • Salt & Black pepper
  • 4 Beets – small (I steamed my own but the chilled  ones would be fine)
  • 50g ish Feta Cheese – crumbled
  • Hand full of pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 Pomegranate – seeds
  • Lemon juice
  • A drizzle of olive oil

 

Preparation Method

  1. In a large frying pan add a very small 1/2 Tablespoon of olive oil
  2. once hot add your butternut squash noodles – stir fry for 2-3 minutes
  3. At the last moment add your spinach – you just want it to wilt
  4. Season with a touch of salt and plenty of black pepper
  5. Tip the butternut squash & spinach on your plate
  6. Construct now – with beets (halved, Crumbled Feta, Pomegranate seeds and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds
  7. Finally finish with a drizzle of Olive oil and a squeeze of lemon juice
  8. Dig in – guilt free 🙂
