For the Carrot Pasta:

  • 5 large carrots peeled and spiraled into noodles or grated on a box grater
  • 1/3 cup roasted cashews
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro finely chopped

For the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted unsweetened creamy peanut butter
  • 4 tablespoons coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • 2 cloves large garlic finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Kosher salt to taste


To Prepare the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix together until smooth and creamy.

To Prepare the Carrot Pasta:

  1. Wash carrots well, peel them, and pat them dry.

  2. Using your spiral slicer, make noodles out of all of the carrots. It will be more difficult to make the noodles once there is only a few inches of carrot left, so you can grate what’s left of the carrot.

  3. Place all carrot noodles into a large serving bowl. Pour the Ginger-Lime Peanut Sauce over the noodles and gently toss together (I use my hands for this part).

  4. Serve with roasted cashews (or peanuts) and freshly chopped cilantro.
