Golden Beet Noodles

These noodles are a bit more like pasta in their texture than spaghetti squash, and offer another option if you can't find spaghetti squash or are wanting more variety in your meals.  They are also much faster to make (as long as you have a food processor).  To make them, simply grate golden beets.  I found that 3 beets makes a nice amount of "pasta".  You can either eat them raw, in which case they have a harder, crunchier texture, or you can boil them for 2 minutes.  This gives them a texture much more like al dente pasta and reduces the bitter taste that raw beets have.  Serve them with whatever sauce you like or just with butter and salt.


  1. Such a great idea! I've done this with raw zucchini and a spiralizer (or grater), but beets didn't occur to me as I tend to use the "traditional" red ones. Gotta give this a try!

  2. Another intersting idea from you!! I'll have to try this.
