Incase you missed the news, I’ve completely fallen head-over-heels in love with the spiralizer kitchen tool. I guess we can blame my new friend Ali author of the awesome cookbook Inspiralized for this new obsession … after all, it was her gorgeous blog that sparked my spiralizing passion.
So I ended up chatting with Ali, you can read all about her in my special interview with her, and of course imploring her to share a recipe with us. Cause seriously, once you taste how yummy these zoodles are, your mind will be spinning with ideas on how to get your family to happily and willingly eat more veggies.
In fact, Ali’s amazing Turkey Bolognese with Zoodles is just the first in a series of pasta make-over recipes I’ll be presenting this month all featuring the amazing zoodle! (See the list of spiralizer recipes below.)
So what is a “zoodle,” you may ask?
It’s zucchini that’s been spiralized into noodles. These “zoodles” as we call them, can be used in place of pasta to create delicious, highly nutritious gluten-free and grain-free dishes with all the fun and bite of al dente pasta, but without the gluten, grain and carbs – making them an excellent choice for those on GF diets, or for those who simply want to enjoy more veggies.
A bonus to spiralizing is that it literally takes just seconds to turn the little handle and create a healthy mound of fresh zoodles. In fact, in far less than the time it takes to boil water and cook pasta, you can spiralize some zucchini and add the zoodles to your favorite sauces and sautés, as they literally only take 2-3 minutes to cook.
