It has been a crazy, busy and beautiful few months opening The Kindred Kitchen and now we are sitting at 2 weeks open and are so grateful to every person who has come in and had some of our food.
I am also 14 weeks pregnant and have been noticing all the little kiddies around and would love for mine to enjoy their vegetables as I don't keep anything else in the house :) So rice noodles that are purple and turn pink with a little lemon squeezed over it just seems like a great way to get kids to eat all the weird and wonderful things I like to cook.
So all you need to do is bring a pot of water to the boil with purple cabbage in the water - I use the outer leaves that don't look so great and the core and it colours the water really nice and purple.
Place your noodles in the boiling water and let cook for 3 minutes - taste one to see that it isn't still crunchy and if it is soft then drain and rinse with cold water to stop from cooking.
Place the noodles in a bowl and serve with a lemon - When the person squeezes the lemon over the noodles they will change colour to a beautiful pink :)
I served mine this time with steamed broccoli and butternut, cucumber ribbons, spiralized beetroot, kale, sesame seeds and soy sauce with a squeeze of lime.
