Butternut Squash Noodles with Harissa Cashew Cream and Crispy Brussels Sprout Chips

I have had a long and very romantic love affair with my spiralizer, since the moment we met. It just gets me and it has never, ever let me down. So, it only seems appropriate to share another spiralized recipe, this Valentine’s week! This post is part recipe for Butternut Squash Noodles with Harissa Cashew Cream and Crispy Brussels Sprout Chips and part ode to my spiralizer!

Every single time I pull my spiralizer out to use it, I find myself blown away, not just by how simple it is to use, but also by all of the fun and creative recipes I can create with it. I find myself making the ever-popular zucchini noodles (aka noodles) on a nearly daily basis when I have zucchini growing in my garden, but I am also quite obsessed with yellow squash noodles, as well. Some of my other favorites are sweet potato noodles, cucumber ribbons and celeriac noodles. I have also been known to spiralize apples and pears, onions, and the list goes on and on and then on some more.

Butternut squash is one of my very personal favorites, made into spiralized noodles. They are hearty and stand up well in so many various recipes. They are great simply just tossed with a little olive oil and garlic with fresh herbs, or maybe some browned butter with toasted hazelnuts or I really enjoy them in a hearty, but healthy creamy sauce, like the one featured here. Before I get more into this particulars of this amazing recipe, I want to take a moment to share this incredible how-to video from my girl Ali of Inspiralized. It’s a simple, easy to follow, step-by-step video on making the perfect butternut squash noodles.

Outside of these swoon-worthy butternut squash noodles that I could easily carry-on about, I also have to tell you of another current food crush – Brussels Sprout Chips! Take what you know and love about kale chips and multiply that times like, I don’t know – a million zillion!! Brussels sprout chips are one of my most favorite things, currently. Crispy and browned – they have the most amazing flavor. They are great as a snack but even better served on top of a bowl of goodness like this one.

Finally, the Harissa Cashew Cream used as the sauce over the butternut squash noodles, is super simple to make and loaded with delicious and robust, spicy flavors. I, of course, made it with my homemade harissa sauce, which allows you to control the level of spice, but you could certainly use pre-made/store bought and if you don’t have any harissa, sriracha would also be great!
