Even If You Can Barely Cook, You Can Make These Mystical Unicorn Noodles

Unicorn noodles are about to be the biggest thing to hit the dinner scene since mermaid toast was introduced to the breakfast table.

Thanks to our food-obsessed Instagram feeds, we’re already well versed in mystical food creations like color-changing snow lemonade, and we can’t wait to add this mystical bowl of noodles to the mix. A.J. assures us that it’s “so simple that I almost feel ashamed making a post on it.” OK, that’s definitely a recipe we can get behind.

And the dish isn’t just a food-coloring dump: All those purples are courtesy of fruits and vegetables. You start with purple cabbage to create the deep purple, then use lemon and lime juice to make color variations. How’s that for food chemistry? There are countless color variations, depending on how much citrus you add.

So what are you waiting for? Go forth and conquer unicorn noodles. And then, of course, Instagram it for all of us to see.
