spiralizer

I’ve been coveting a spiral slicer for a while, but they were a bit expensive on Amazon.  Last week, I looked again and this one was marked down from $49.99 to $13.77.  While it was never worth $50,  I’d spend $13.77 for a food toy.  It works a bit like a pencil sharpener–you push and turn the zucchini into the cone shape and the ribbons (noodles) come out the side.  It has two sides for two different thicknesses of noodle.  The orange in the pan is a carrot I tried which is harder to do because the vegetable is harder.  I also should have taken a picture as the noodles were coming out, but I didn’t think of it until I was all done. :>(   The noodles stir fried in a jiffy in a bit of olive oil and were tasty with salt, pepper and a bit of Parmesan cheese sprinkle on top.  I have a recipe for eggplant “meatballs” that I’m trying soon. They will look nice on top of zucchini noodles.  My mom always scolded us kids when we played with our food.  This takes playing to a whole new level. zucchini hubs

 

This funny shape is what was left of the zucchini after being spiralized.   The pan is holding two medium zucchini and one carrot. Wes and I ate it all as a side dish.

    Nathan saw one of these and called it a zucchini sharpener since it’s just like a big pencil sharpener 🙂
