I was quite intrigued by the term ‘spiralizing’ – had to get on that bandwagon! Not only does it make vegetables ‘taste’ different – it makes you cook healthier. I researched models and found this high-rated model:
Paderno World Cuisine 3-Blade Vegetable Slicer / Spiralizer, Counter-Mounted and includes 3 Stainless Steel Blades
I am quite happy with it and have now bought it as gifts and suggested its purchase to countless friends. Why use it: 1) It’s fun 2) You tend to use veggies that you would not have tried previously. 3) The combinations are endless.
My favorite things to spiralize:
- Zucchini – I was not much of a zucchini fan prior to owning the spiralizer – but now I am a convert – ‘zoodles’ as they are called, are all the rage and are making non-veggie eaters unite for the cause!
- Sweet Potatoes – Love, love, love the great taste of a spiralized sweet potato.
- Onions & Potatoes – a mixture of both, topped with salt, pepper and olive oil – high roasted on a sheet pan – makes a wonderful side dish.
