I’ve been using a vegetable spiralizer for awhile now to make vegetable noodles.  When I switched over to a no grain diet I needed something to put my pesto and home made meat sauce on!  I started by using zucchini only as it is the easiest one to use (leave the skin on for the healthy green part, but you can peel to make it look more like real noodles!) I have now branched out into carrots, sweet potato and daikon radish.  I have yet to try parsnips, turnips, cucumber, broccoli stems, apples and squash!  One of my favorite recipes using daikon radish is pad thai.  A great cookbook which I got recently is here and I can’t wait to try out some new recipes!

Some other great ideas:

  • cold noodle salad made with carrot noodles
  • broccoli slaw
  • sweet potato curly fries!
  • apple dessert made with apple spirals
  • pretty spiralized beets on top of a salad or roasted (wash spiralizer right away or will stain)

There are a few different kinds out there but this is the one that I love and use regularly.  It is inexpensive, comes with three blades and washes very easily!
