Food trends may come and go, but the latest craze for spiralized food seems to have real staying power. Because, real talk, there’s something insanely magical about the ability to transform practically any vegetable into a mound of beautiful, edible sprirals. From delightfully bouncy salads to gluten-free (and guilt-free) pastas, what’s not to love? Today, Ali Maffucci, the founder of Inspiralized, is sharing a delicious recipe with rutabaga noodles that are—you guessed it—spiralized!

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the onions, celery and carrots, season with salt and pepper, and cook for 3 minutes or until softened. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Then, add the curry powder, turmeric, cumin, coriander and chili powder and stir until vegetables are coated in the spices.

Add in the tomatoes, cauliflower, split peas, coconut milk, and broth and stir to combine well. Season with salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and let cook for 30-40 minutes or until peas are tender.

While curry cooks, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Peel and spiralize the rutabaga with Blade C. Lay out the rutabaga noodles, season with salt and pepper and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through.

When curry is ready, divide the rutabaga noodles into bowls and top with curry. Serve.

Hi Ali
I have tried some of your recipes and they have been wonderful and so does the split pea and cauliflower curry look wonderful. I am making myself a cookbook with all of the recipes that I like. Nothing fancy, just for me. On your recipes I have to write it out since I don’t see anywhere that says “print”. It looks so much nicer when I can just print them instead of writing them. Any thoughts on that?

Can you recommend a substitute for coconut milk? I am allergic to coconut but would love to make this.
Thank you!

This looks delicious! Do you leave the lid on while the curry is simmering for 30-40 minutes?

I love curry and I love cauliflower so this was a win-win. I didn’t have lite coconut milk so I used whole fat coconut milk — tastes just fine. Great recipe and I think it will taste even better tomorrow.
