RAINBOW VEGETABLE NOODLES
1 Medium Zucchini
I'm not even joking when I tell you that my spiral slicer changed my life. These "noodles" are so versatile for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Baking them in bacon fat makes them the perfect accompaniment to eggs and your favorite breakfast meat. I have included some other photos of recipes that will be posted soon to give you an idea of just how versatile these "noodles" truly are. To make this a vegetarian dish, simply replace the bacon fat with avocado oil or butter. But trust me when I say the bacon fat really does complete this dish.INGREDIENTS

Below is how I like to cook them to use them as a breakfast dish. I like to get them nice and crispy like hash browns. You can just as easily saute them with a little oil, salt and pepper and use them as a base for your favorite pasta style dishes. There are many more recipes featuring these noodles still to come.
1 Medium Summer Squash
1 Large Carrot
1 Small Sweet Potato (The thinner the better)
4 oz. Red Onion
6 oz. Mixed Bell Peppers (I use yellow, red and orange)
3 Large Cloves Garlic
4 Tbs. Bacon Fat
Salt and Pepper – To Taste
(2 Tbs. Peace and Love)
Preheat oven to 400° Coat a baking sheet with the bacon fat. (Alternatively, you can use oil or butter.)
Using a spiral slicer , spiral the zucchini, squash, carrot and sweet potato into noodle-like ribbons.
Using a mandolin , on the thinnest setting, slice red onion, bell peppers, and garlic.
Combine all vegetables, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to mix.
Spread vegetable noodles in a thin layer across baking sheet . Bake for 20 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes.
