Beetroot and Feta 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. So I’ve developed this Beetroot and Feta Salad with butternut squash noodles and it’s super tasty!!
They have lots such as the likes of, Squoodles, Courgetti etc they have some very funny shapes
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.
I do this from time to time as I seem to lose the ‘bloat’ which is always a good thing. But I miss carbs – so anything that remotely feels like carbs is good as far as I’m concerned
I’m such a carbs girl, so limiting them occasionally is good for me.
Warm Butternut Beetroot & Feta Salad
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.
There is something about beetroot with feta. I’m not sure why it works so well. But it just does
Maybe it’s the saltiness of the Feta combined with the sweet earth beetroot? Then when you chuck in butternut squash, well it just makes it
Beetroot and Goats cheese is also something I love, so you could try that if you prefer!
Low Carb Salad
Mix that with pumpkin seeds, pomegranate seeds, lemon juice and olive oil and you have a winner!
And how pretty do those pomegranate seed look next to the pumpkin seeds, like little jewels 🙂
Lovely low carb salad here we go! Do they call it Keto?
Have a go and let me know
Spiralizers for making your courgetti / squoodles
I’ve been looking around at ‘spiralizers’ and here’s one I can recommend, from Joseph Joseph and it’s simple and amazing
I’ll do a live video when I get a chance.
What I do like about making my own courgetti or squoodles is that it’s dryer and fresher than the shop bought courgetti! :
Look at the picture – no soggy here:
