Coastal Carrot “Fettuccine” with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Pumpkin Seeds from Amie Valpone

Carrot Fettuccine

In this dish, the “fettuccine” is actually made from carrots shredded into ribbons with a vegetable peeler. I think you’ll be surprised at how much it tastes like the real thing. The sauce clings to the ribbons, giving each bite a delectable, earthy flavor.

This recipe was contributed by Amie Valpone, Founder of The Healthy Apple. Be sure to check out her brand new cookbook, Eating Clean: The 21-Day Plan to Detox, Fight Inflammation and Reset Your Body.

  • 2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Clove garlic Minced
  • 1/2 Cup Grape tomatoes Quartered
  • 2.5 Tbsp Fresh basil Finely chopped

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and saute until soft and fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of the basil and saute until the tomatoes burst and release their juices, about 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice the carrots into ribbons, using either a spiral slicer (aka spiralizer) or a vegetable peeler (this is easiest when you hold the carrot down on a flat surface).
