The Spiralizer- A Great Kitchen Gadget

Are you familiar with Spiralizer machines? – Handy for turning vegetables like zucchini into curly pasta-like strands.

This handy slicer creates beautiful mounds of julienne squash, carrots, zucchini, cucumbers and other vegetables for garnishing, toppings, and create recipes.

It’s simple to use and makes nutritious spiral vegetables & noodles – a gluten free, grain free, low carb alternative to pasta!
Add new texture to your dish, stir-fries and salads. You can make long ribbons of cucumber, carrots and radishes for salads, or apple spirals for apple slaw.

It’s a must have in my kitchen! Make “pasta” in no time!

Spiralizing a food, such as a potato or zucchini squash is the method of spinning the veggie while slicing and/or julienning all at the same time.

What you end up with are these long, noodle-like formations of the vegetable which can be eaten raw, cooked by themselves or can replace pasta in any recipe.

Or eat the zucchini pasta raw and top with the Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Marinara Sauce ( raw)

This Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Raw Marinara Sauce is easy, light, healthy. Any leftover sauce would be really really good  as a dip for tortilla chips.

I love this sauce with zucchini noodles. It’s thick and hearty, and really delicious.
