Sesame Carrot Noodles: A Beautiful Plant-Based Salad


Chef Candice Kumai says you can spiralize your way to healthy glowing skin with her carrot noodles recipe. This side dish or light main is rich in antioxidants, and the carrots are a natural way to help our bodies produce vitamin A. The avocado also adds a boost of healthy fats, and the edamame balances out the protein and dairy-free calcium.

Special Diet Notes: Sesame Carrot Noodles

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, nut-free, peanut-free, optionally vegan, plant-based, and vegetarian.

For soy-free sesame carrot noodles, you can omit the edamame or swap in your favorite soy-free, dairy-free protein. You can also substitute coconut aminos for the soy sauce. Coconut aminos are naturally much lower in sodium, so you don’t need to seek out a low-sodium version. And finally, you can use a soy-free, chickpea miso.
