I feel that the new year has brought a few new veggie and veggie product trends: kalettes (read about them HERE), everything cauliflower, and spiralizers. Today we are going to talk about spiralizers or a spiral slicer. This is a kitchen product that takes veggies and turns them into “noodles”. Some of the best veggies for the spiralizer or spiral slicer are zucchini, squash, beets, onions, carrots, and potatoes. Ever since receiving my spiral slicer, I can’t stop making recipes using the product. My favorite veggie to use is zucchini. Here is the first recipe I made with my spiral slicer!
Tomato Sauce (amount depends on how much sauce you prefer)
Salt, Pepper, and Cayenne Pepper
Olives (optional, for garnish)
Add 2 TBSP coconut oil to a skillet on medium-high heat
Once coconut oil is melted, add ground meat and cook until brown
Remove meat from skillet and place in bowl (strain if there is a lot of juices)
Melt 2 TBSP coconut oil to skillet, add mushrooms, and season with salt and pepper
Once mushrooms are tender, add meat to skillet, and tomato sauce
Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste
While this mixture is heating, spiralize zucchini into zoodles
Heat zoodles in oven safe dish in microwave for two minutes
Add kale to mixture on stove and stir to combine
Plate zoodles and spoon mixture over zoodles
Top with feta cheese and olives, serve, and enjoy!
There are many, many more spiral slicer recipes coming your way! In the meantime, here are two of my suggestions for spiral slicers:
This is the spiral slicer I have. I suggest purchasing this one if you aren’t sure if you will be using the slicer often or want to get the hang of making recipes from it.
This model I suggest if you know you will be using this product a lot.
