Zucchini noodles are a healthy alternative to pasta that I often order, while eating out. When I came across this gadget online, I knew immediately that I needed to own it. It spirals every thing from zucchini to cucumbers, and is really simple to use.
Once zucchini is spiraled, it can be eaten raw in salads or boiled like pasta noodles. In a sauce pan, bring water to a boil and add zucchini. Boil for two minutes. Strain the noodles and get rid of any excessive water.
Get creative by adding a sauce and additional veggies. For a quick dinner, I added organic marinara sauce, fresh oregano, pepper, kalamata olives, cannellini beans and nutritional yeast (which has a nutty/cheesy flavor & is high protein & in Vitamin B.) Vegan, gluten-free and low calorie, it’s great for a “lean & green” dinner.
