Cucumber Noodles with a Dijon Tarragon Vegan Cream Sauce and Give-Away!

A while back I received and email from What is In their words, “We’re the home network. Imagine Pinterest meets Linkedin for home improvement.” They were offering me a KitchenAid® stand mixer with a KitchenAid Spiralizer attachment in exchange for a recipe (that I would create) and a blog post (this one).


Cucumber Noodles with Creamy Sauce and Chantrelles. Vegan recipe!


First, let me say, I get offers like this a lot. Almost all get deleted. When I tell you about a product, I want to make sure I tell you about are things that I love and have experience with.

But two things caught my attention with  this offer. First of all it was from Kitchenaid. I have kitchen appliances in my kitchen and love them. Second, it was a high quality spiralizer that actually attaches to a Kitchenaid mixer. Now that was something I wanted to see, try and write about.  I know that spiralizers are relevant to this blog and you, the reader.




So I said yes. And I must say, I was not disappointed. The spiralizer worked like a dream. The craftsmanship is the standard you expect from KitchenAid, beautifully made, metal, and super sharp. It was effortless and made perfect, consistent noodles. It comes with 4 blades that make 2 different sizes of “noodles”, a ribbon cut and also a peeler.  It is pretty cool and the best news is that is giving away a KitchenAid Mixer and Spiralizer that you can win.

The contest runs August 18th through the 30th and the winner is chosen on August 31st.

Creating the recipe for this post was pure fun. I started with cucumber noodles, simply because I love how refreshing they are. I started pulling together ingredients that cucumber’s like and before I knew it, I had a flavorful tarragon dijon sauce whipped up. For this recipe I actually roasted cherry tomatoes and mushrooms for the topping. But you can keep it raw by just using fresh tomatoes and mushrooms.

    I cannot find Shimeji mushrooms either–even at our large Asian market.
