Housewife on a Diet: Daikon "Noodles" with Chicken and Tomato Sauce

I will come back later to give a proper update, remember I update DAILY over on my youtube vlog (HCGHousewife).  I just wanted to jump on here to post this recipe for my youtube followers.  It is such a yummie dish I just could not wait to share it.

(insert spot of pic)

1 pound daikon
1 cup chopped  tomatoes
.5 cup warm water (this is “eye balled” so the measurement is really by site)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin coconut oil
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, for serving (optional for P3 and beyond, only)
1. Using a swivel-blade vegetable peeler, remove outer skin of the daikon and discard. Continue peeling down the length of the daikon, creating long ribbons that look like fettuccine noodles. Place daikon noodles in a large bowl and cover with salted water; let soak 15 to 20 minutes.
2. In a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat oil. Add onions and garlic; cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add tomatoes and salt. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until sauce is thick, 10 to 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Drain daikon noodles and dry them using a kitchen towel. Gently add noodles to sauce; reduce heat to medium. Cook until noodles are just heated through, about 1 minute. Divide among serving plates; serve immediately, with cheese, if desired and NOT on P2.

Happy Homemaking,
