Dishing Up the Dirt

Turnip Noodles with Sausage & Kimchi-Miso Sauce

We’ve been on a big vegetable noodle kick here at the farm recently. We love these noodles so much that we’re actually going to be making and bagging our own to bring to the Hood River Farmers market from here on out! So if you live in the area and you don’t own a spiralizer we’ve got you covered. However, for everyone else, I love this little tool so much. We make noodles out of everything from turnips, zucchini, beets, carrots, parsnips, kohlrabi and sweet potatoes. You can go wild with all of your favorite pasta toppings or keep it simple with just a little oil, salt and vinegar and a bunch of fresh herbs. I love this recipe that I’m sharing today because it’s perfectly satisfying on a hot summer day. The kimchi-miso sauce is pungent and delicious and pairs so well with the turnip noodles, sausage, crushed peanuts and cilantro. I chose to keep my noodles raw for this because I love the slight crunch, however a quick sauté in a little oil would be nice too. I’ve made them both ways and enjoy them equally.

I hope you all enjoy these fresh noodle bowls as much as we do. And if you live in the area you can pick up most of your ingredients for these bowls at the Hood River Farmers market this Saturday. Everything from your veggies, kimchi and sausage. Happy cooking everyone!
