Don't play with your food

I'm taking one for the team here...

risking getting yelled at for playing with my food.

 

 

I've bought a veggie spiralizer so I can make noodles out of: zucchini, sweet potato, butternut squash or carrots, & if I wanna blow a weeks worth of exercise; spiral fries!

apple

 

 

 

You can even make dessert by spiralizing apples for a crisp! MMmmMM!

 

 

spiralizer

 

 

It's an easy machine to run; figure out if you want your noodles thick or thin, spiral or flat & pop in the corresponding blade.

 

Suction cups on the bottom stop it from wandering while in use. I hold the machine at the top area you see, but I'm sure you will figure out how to operate it to suit you.

 

The veggie of choice is mounted on the short metal tube then the spiked hand crank holds the veggie in place via pressure.

 

The metal tube makes a core in most hard veggies, but leaves most cucumbers fairly seed free.

 

Crank the handle with slight pressure toward the blade & within seconds you have a cool item for dinner.

 

Here is a website with some great recipes!

 

salad

 

Here is a simple salad I made with grape tomatoes, feta, yellow pepper & cukes. (note the quarter of cuke on the left; you will be left with a core or small pieces of whatever you are cranking, because the blade will start cutting the spikes off if one goes too far)

 

I find the spirals can get very long so I cut the cucumbers in thirds & the zukes in half before cranking.

 

 

 

You will find out what length you like best, but I find if there's sauce & I have to slurp; I Will be wearing it...

I might need to invest in one o' dese... :D
