Noodles with a sauce of carrot tops, radish greens, and yogurt

Added by: on Nov 3rd, 2010
This sauce is a bit mysterious because it’s made from those greens that we usually discard—carrot tops and radish leaves—and whose flavor eludes us. They’re lively, interesting, and tangy, especially when mixed with the yogurt. This dish is not meant to be served piping hot, because the .. more >

Directions:

1

Sort through the greens and discard any funky-looking leaves. Wash and chop them coarsely. Pour the yogurt into a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to drain. Heat a large pot of salted water for the pasta.

2

Heat the oil in a wide nonstick skillet. Add the chile and onion and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for a few minutes or until the onion turns translucent. Next add the greens with the water clinging to their leaves. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and cook until wilted, turning them with a pair of tongs after 3 or 4 minutes. Puree with the drained yogurt, then transfer the mixture to a large skillet. Turn the heat on low to warm the yogurt. Don’t get it too hot or it will curdle.

3

Cock the pasta in the salted water until al dente, then drain. While it's cooking, toast the pine nuts in a small skillet until golden. Add the pasta to the sauce, toss well, and salt to taste. Scatter the cheese and pine nuts over the top.

Cooks' note:
Variation: In place of the feta and pine nuts, halve a pint of cherry tomatoes, toss them with minced chile, cilantro, and a little lime juice, and set them aside to come to room temperature while you make the dish. Spoon them over the pasta just before serving.

I wanted something healthier, and low in carb after a week of pretty heavy meals. And yakisoba comes to mind, because of it's tangy and sweet sauce base. So I replaced the meat/seafood with tofu, and replaced the noodles with thinly sliced/shredded cabbage.

Carrot cake is especially moist because it is made with oil. Oil, unlike butter, remains liquid at room temperature, so the cake stays moist even when cool. This recipe contains walnuts, which give the cake a delightful crunch, and pineapple, which adds flavor and contrast. The carrots are best when grated on a box grater. Some graters have tiny punch-outs instead of teeth for the finest grate. ..

This healthy and simple side dish is very easy to make. Great side dish to add to your dinner table or lunch box. By using the dehydrator, the carrots become crispy and chewy without losing any nutrition.
