Cooking with the Moms

We dig beets especially when they're roasted and served as a side dish ... or added to smoothies, salads, and even meatballs. On this week's show, we dish about the nutritional benefits of beets, explain how to roast them and how to cook up the mild-flavored greens, and we share three new recipes: Strawberry and Beet Smoothies, Turkey Beetballs, and Beet Green Omelets. On the show, we also share a Youtube link on how to make the perfect omelet, hosted by Jamie Oliver.

Got picky eaters? Your mealtime woes are about to end thanks to an oh-so-cool kitchen gadget: the spiralizer. Getting kids excited about eating their vegetables can be easy, especially when you turn carrots, zucchini, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, and even beets into noodles! With the spiralizer, everyday vegetables get turned into adorable, impossible-to-resist curly noodles. On this week's show, we dig into the spiralizer craze, chat about the equipment you'll need to turn veggies into noodles, and share two new recipes: Cucumber and Carrot "Noodle" Salad and Zoodle and Carrot Lo Mein. While many spiralizer recipes are gluten-free, vegan, and paleo, we're more excited about the craze because it makes veggies just so darn fun to eat. If you'd like to purchase our favorite spiralizer, check out the Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Spiralizer.
