Making Zoodles

IMG_1736

I was gifted with a Spiralizer this Christmas. It was actually part of a Yankee Swap, and one of the other players was quick to drop it in my lap and make a grab for the two bottles of wine that I was attempting to block from view.

Now I had never heard of a Spiralizer, and truthfully, the jury is still out on its usefulness, but I’ve started fooling around with it, and it’s actually showing some promise. It’s a compact device with three or four blades, depending on the model, that turns vegetables into spiral strands similar to noodles. Turning a zucchini into zoodles! These vegetables can be dressed with various sauces, cutting out the carb factor. I just read a recipe for sweet potato mac and cheese.

This thing must be pretty cutting edge. The current Williams-Sonoma catalog has devoted a page to it, and there are cookbooks and blogs and apps touting the health benefits of getting “inspiralized”! Who knew?

Stay tuned.

    I recently saw this, too, and as I read your blog I was trying to remember where I saw it. Yes, the William Sonoma catalog that came in the mail! Intriguing…will be interested to get your take as you experiment!
