Presenting: unicorn noodles! These gorgeous colorful noodles need to artificial colors. All you need is noodles, purple cabbage, and lemon juice! It's like magic, but really: it's science. Purple cabbage has a pigment called anthocyanin, which changes color when it makes contact with something acidic. When you cook purple cabbage for a short time in some water, you’ll get a nice blue shade, cook it for a bit longer with a bit more purple cabbage will give you a nice purple shade. Now when you add something acidic (lemon or lime juice) to the blue colored noodles, the pigment from the purple cabbage will react and takes on a bright pink color.

Unicorn Noodles [Vegan, Gluten-Free]

Ingredients

  • Rice noodles or glass noodles, use whatever amount you want to make
  • Purple cabbage
  • Juice of lemon or lime

Preparation

  1. Start with a piece of purple cabbage. Add to a pot of water and cook for 5 minutes. The amount of cabbage you use for the water and the time you soak the noodles for will affect the vibrancy of the noodles.
  2. Turn off heat and add the noodles. Let soak for 5-10 minutes, depending on how deep you want the color to be. Soak for 5 minutes for a pastel blue color. Remove noodles and place in a bowl.
  3. Take a lime or lemon and squeeze some of the juice wherever you want it to be pink and watch the noodles change color in front of your own eyes.

Meyer Lemon Coconut Cream Tarts With Mint and Lavender [Vegan, Raw, Gluten-Free]

To make the crust: put the oats and almonds into a high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick, slightly crumbly paste. If needed or desired, add a little maple syrup, then press into two tartlet molds or whatever shapes/molds you like. Put in the fridge. To make the lemon coconut cream: put the coconut and cashews into your high speed blender and blend until it turns into a thick paste/butter. Stir in a 1/4 cup lemon juice and the maple syrup until evenly combined (or blend it in). If you'd like more lemon flavour, add more lemon juice! I like mine quite tart - no pun intended, seriously - so I used a full 1/2 cup. Spread this mixture evenly into your crusts, then let them sit in the fridge overnight or for at least a couple hours so the flavours can get to know each other. Garnish with mint, basil, lemon zest, maple syrup or whatever else you like! Life is good!

These are pretty, but how do they taste? Does it need a sauce and if so what kind?
