We've been supporting local farmers by participating in a food co-op each Saturday for fresh produce. One Saturday we saw this large object that looked like a giant white carrot. We figured we wouldn't use it, particularly after we identified it as a Japanese root called Daikon.
Low and behold, Martha Stewart came to the rescue with a delicious recipe that I thought would be too good to be true! Daikon fettuccine with tomato sauce.
Here's the link with a how-to video:
It was delicious! If you're trying to cut carbs, calories, or gluten, this is the perfect alternative! It tastes like normal pasta with a very slightly different texture.
We will be making this one again!
