As rainbow food hues continue to hold the attention of millennials and Instagrammers all over the world, this Dutch Instagram user invented unicorn noodles that are featured in a wide variety of healthy bowl recipes.
AJ (@theindigokitchen) invented the colorful noodles ranging from bright neons (glass noodles) to soft pastels (rice noodles). Instead of using synthetic food coloring, AJ uses brightly colored produce such as purple cabbage and citrus fruit. The noodles are often enjoyed alongside other multihued vegetables.
The unicorn noodles join the ranks of other photography-friendly foods including grilled cheese sandwiches and sugary coffees. Others have also followed The Indigo Kitchen instructions to create their own versions, and adding feminine flourishes like edible flower petals and tiny stars.
