Rutabaga Noodles

I decided to try making rutabaga noodles to go with my leftover Korean BBQ pork, instead of having rice. I pulled some rutabagas from the garden. What is left is mostly stems. Here they are all pealed.

I put them through the spiralizer.

I looked at a variety of recipes.  Some called for sautéing the noodles and some boiled them.  The one I chose sauteed for 5 minutes and then steamed them for 8 minutes.  I used chicken broth instead of water and added some toasted sesame oil to the olive oil for some flavor.  Here it is in the pan before cooking.

Here they are all cooked up.  They didn’t taste that great at this point.

But then I put some soy sauce and then the warmed pork on top. And it was really good.

So that is a good use for rutabagas.

Here are the obligatory Ryeleigh images.  Here she is with a new-to-her ball. 

And here she is later sleeping on the couch next to me while I knit.
