A simple vegetable peeler turns carrots into beautifully thin strips in this healthy vegetable side dish recipe. If you have a spiralizer, you can go for an artful tangle instead. Serve with miso-glazed fish or tofu. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2017

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using a vegetable peeler or mandoline, make long, thin strips of carrot until you have about 8 cups of carrot ribbons.

  • Whisk orange juice, vinegar, tamari (or soy sauce), oil, honey and garlic powder in a large bowl. Add the carrot ribbons and scallions and toss well to coat. Let stand 5 minutes; toss again. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.


To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 1 day.

People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
