About This Noodles Super Bowl Recipe
I love noodles. All noodles. But when it comes to the noodles I cook at home, I have a few favorites that I always like to include in my dishes.
And no, I don’t mean the instant noodles you find in a plastic cup. I’m talking about fresh, homemade noodles that are bursting with flavor and nutrition!
For me, the perfect noodle dish includes a variety of noodles, each with its own unique texture and flavor. That’s why, in this recipe, I chose to combine four different types of noodles in my recipes — zucchini noodles for their softness and green color, carrot noodles for their crunchy texture and orange color, purple carrot noodles for their intense color and nutrient-rich properties, and finally kelp noodles for their jelly-like and chewy texture.
To make the dish even more nutritious and colorful, I’ve added fresh red bell pepper, kale leaves, Thai basil, green onions, and garlic chives. To enhance all the flavors, I seasoned the noodles with a delectable dressing made with lime juice, miso, sesame oil, tamari, grated ginger, black pepper, olive oil, and a few chill flakes for a little kick.
When it comes to the noodles I cook at home, I believe that variety is the key to creating a dish that is both delicious and nutritious.
This dish is perfect for satisfying your appetite. Give it a try; you won’t be disappointed!
What You Need for This Noodles Super Bowl Recipe
- Zucchini: I like to use green zucchini that I spiralize, turning them into noodle shapes, also known as zoodles. They are ideal for a low-carb diet.
- Carrots: To make the bowl super colorful, I like to use orange and purple carrots that I spiralize and turn into beautifully vibrant and delicious noodles.
- Kelp Noodles: They are made from kelp, a sea vegetable, and are an easy-to-eat gluten-free raw noodle, perfect for various diet plans like the keto, Paleo, or low calories diets.
- Kale: It is a crunchy, hearty leafy green that gives a strong and earthy taste to the noodles bowl.
- Thai Basil: It has a lovely anise smell and a slightly spicy, licorice-like flavor.
- Red Bell Pepper: I like to add some red bell pepper for an added touch of color and crunch.
- Green Onions: I like to use green onions because they have a mild, gentle flavor compared to regular onions.
- Garlic Chives: It adds a mildly garlicky taste.
- Lime Juice: It gives the dressing a bright and vibrant flavor, with a distinct zesty sour taste.
- Miso: It is a soybean-based thick paste with a deeply savory, toasty, salty-sweet richness. It delivers a wonderful umami flavor.
- Sesame Oil: It has a nutty flavor that gives the dish an instant upgrade.
- Tamari: It is mellower, less salty, and slightly thicker in texture compared to soy sauce and is perfect for this noodles bowl.
- Ginger: A bit of freshly grated ginger adds a slightly peppery, sweet, pungent, and spicy aroma.
- Chili Flakes: I’ve added a few chill flakes for an additional spice kick.
- Toppings (optional): I have topped my noodles bowl with toasted peanuts and sesame seeds.
- Purple Carrots: If you cannot find them, you can use yellow carrots or some more orange carrots.
- Bell Pepper: I like to use red bell pepper to have a more colorful bowl but any other bell pepper will work well in this recipe.
- Green Onions: You can replace them with chives, leeks, ramps, shallots, or onions.
- Tamari: You can use soy sauce instead, but be careful because it can taste slightly more salty than tamari.
- Toppings: If you want to top your noodles bowl with toasted peanuts, you can use the store-bought ones or toast them at home. You just need to add the peanuts to a small pan on low heat with a pinch of sea salt flakes and ½ teaspoon of paprika. Stir often and cook for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, let them cool for a couple of minutes, and add them to your noodle bowl.
Where can I buy the kelp noodles?
It is not always easy to find kelp noodles. The best places to look for them are in organic food shops or Asian grocery stores. They usually come in a plastic bag and are moist.
Can I prepare these noodles super bowl in advance?
You can prepare the noodles and the dressing in advance, but I suggest mixing them only before serving.
