Noodling is not just for zucchini! Ever tried carrots? Granted, you will need carrots with a large diameter for it to work (baby carrots aren’t going to cut it), but delicious noodles they make!
And although it may sound strange to add fish sauce to beef, the umami it brings to the dish is delicious. This meal is pretty quick to pull together and noodlizing the carrots is a great way to get your kids involved.
This spiralizer, available here on Amazon, is the same one I’ve been using for years.Print
