Large noodle-like ribbons of fresh carrot are tossed with feta, pine nuts and fresh rosemary for a super simple, meatless, pasta-free noodle dish. Delicious couldn’t be any simpler! Using a variety of colourful rainbow carrots will make this salad look even more unbelievable.
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) pine nuts
  • 6 large carrots, peeled
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) chopped fresh rosemary
Directions
  1. Heat a large skillet on medium heat. Place the pine nuts in the pan and stir frequently for a few minutes or until fragrant and lightly toasted. Remove the nuts from the pan and set aside in a small bowl.

  2. Use a handheld cheese slicer to slice the carrots into large, flat strips. The strips should be the width of the carrots, approximately 1 to 1½ inches (2.5 to 4 cm). Place the strips in a steamer or saucepan of water, and gently steam or cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until just tender. Remove the strips from the steamer, place in a medium-large serving bowl and toss with the feta cheese, toasted pine nuts and rosemary. Serve.

  3. Dairy-free option :Replace the feta cheese with soy, nut, seed or other dairy-free cheese.

  4. Vegan option: Replace the feta cheese with soy, nut, seed or other vegan cheese.

  5. Raw option: Replace the toasted pine nuts with untoasted, don’t steam the carrots and use raw nut or seed cheese.

  6. TIP: Don’t have a handheld cheese slicer? Use a wide vegetable peeler to slice large, flat strips of carrot.
