It’s all about easy delicious recipes, especially in the summer. Simple ingredients are you need. Just like this old-fashioned pea salad.
Zoodles (zucchini noodles) are so much fun. Enjoy them in zucchini salads and zoodle bowls. How do you like to eat them? Healthy Zucchini Noodles with Shrimp One Skillet Dinner is a great option too.
I am obsessed with zoodles, but it doesn’t stop there. There are so many great spiralized veggie recipes to make. Zucchini, potatoes, cucumbers, anything that can get turned into noodles will have their turn.
Thick, thin or long shaved strands, new and tasty recipes will be happening in the kitchen. Zoodle spaghetti is fun to make and fun to eat. Just like in this easy zoodle recipe.
HOW DO YOU MAKE ZUCCHINI NOODLES?
The easiest way is with a spiralizer. Believe me, I didn’t think I needed this handy dandy kitchen gadget. I know there are ways to make zucchini noodles without a zucchini noodle maker.
I have a mandolin (yup another gadget) that works fairly well. My husband stresses me out when I use it, so I try to make sure he is not around. Too many horror stories seen on MasterChef and Hell’s Kitchen have him hovering over me when I use it.
After hours of research, I finally decided on the *OXO Good Grips 3-Blade Spiralizer. So many reviews on other brands commented on poor design, hard to clean, and not effective. This IS NOT the case with this particular model. It works FANTASTIC. Easy to clean. Suctions to the counter (REALLY WELL) so it doesn’t move around while you use it either.
You can buy ready-made zucchini noodles. Actually now, there are several spiralized veggies available in the grocery store. Get yourself a handy spiralizer and make them. Not only are they fun to make, but you will also save money doing it yourself. Your new kitchen gadget will earn its keep in no time.
ZUCCHINI NOODLE FRENZY
Zucchinis are available all year round. When the growing season is in full swing, everything from muffins, bread, cakes, and one of our favourite ways to eat it, Zucchini Burger with Sriracha & Pancetta top the list. Oh, don’t let me forget to tell you about my Refrigerator Zucchini Pickles! A must during grilling season. The perfect topping for burgers, hot dogs and sausage on a bun.
Have you tried Zucchini Noodle Gazpacho? What a great cold soup for the summer months.
Zoodles have been on the culinary scene for a long time. What a fun way to incorporate nutritious zucchini into healthy zoodle recipes.
