Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles)

Pin It Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles)

Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles)
This handy little Supreme Home Cook Spiral Slicer unit makes both larger (like I made) and smaller spiral vegetables. When food shopping, I chose 4 zucchini similar in size to the slicer receptacle. The unit is two sided, one for larger spirals and the other side for smaller spirals. Some of the zucchini comes out fairly long if you keep good pressure pushing down as you spin. The spiral slicer should be used with care so you do not get your finger inside it while spinning the vegetables.

I used round zucchini that were 1 1/2 inch thick and it worked well. I could have used larger zucchini, but real big ones would not work well with this particular spiral slicer. I spiral sliced the zucchini after trimming the tip and stem ends. I left the skin on the squash for the vitamins.

In a small steamer, boil water and add the zoodles. Lightly sprinkle with kosher salt and steam for 4-6 minutes. If you steam them longer the texture will be too soft. This amount of time keeps the zoodles "al dente". Drain and blot zoodles with paper towel to remove excess water.

Using the spiral slicer to make the zoodles
Making zoodles
Place on plate and top with your favorite sauce, and/or meat. My wife made her quick pasta sauce and turkey meatballs. To finish the sauce she added, parsley, shredded mozzarella topped with grated Parmesan. Garnish with extra parsley and enjoy!

Super yummy zoodles
This is a healthier alternative to pasta. The zoodles were both delicious and nutritious. I purchased the spiral slicer from Amazon for around $10. I am now hooked on Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles) and look forward to making a lot more recipes using other vegetables with the spiral slicer.

Happy Eating!
