I love pasta – spaghetti bolognese is one of my favorite dishes! Unfortunately, I had to reduce my carb intake to lose weight for health reasons. That’s why I decided to invest in a Spiralizer, a unique gadget that turns vegetables into “noodles”! It’s so much less laborious than using a peeler or having to thinly slice them with a knife. Going keto or low carb has never been easier! Well, right now this 7-blade version is only $20 at Amazon! That’s a whopping 45% off its regular price!
With this, you can make fake “spaghetti” or “fettuccine” from vegetables like zucchini and carrots! You can spiralize everything from potatoes (for a fried snack) to cucumbers (for a fun way to jazz up a salad). Plus, the slicing attachment makes shredding cabbage quick! Simply attach the vegetable to the holder and turn the swivel handle. It’s so simple!
There are other similar machines on the market, but I like this particular model because of a few unique features. First of all, it has very strong suction cups, so it can be held securely on the counter. Second, you can actually store the extra blades inside!
About these blades: They are made from premium stainless steel. The unit itself is made of ultra reinforced ABS plastic. This means you can even spiralize tougher root vegetables like sweet potatoes and turnips without breaking the handle.
As for what you do with those veggie noodles? Why, whatever you like! I like to toss zucchini “zoodles” with ground turkey and store-bought marinara sauce in a casserole dish for an easy weeknight meal. One of the advantages of these vegetarian noodles over regular pasta is that they cook in no time, without the need to dirty another pan.
A five-star review on Amazon says it’s easy and efficient“We started cooking a lot more with zucchini noodles and other vegetables. I started with a manual hand tool, but it was so tedious that we rarely used it. This machine makes it so easy that we cook with vegetables a lot more now… It was a great purchase, and I have recommended it to other friends.”
“It’s one of those rare things that makes you realize how good well-designed products can be,” said another satisfied customer. “I first bought one of the smaller versions, the one you hold in one hand while you use the other hand to twist a vegetable. It worked, but there were a few frustrating aspects. I know that there was potential so I jumped for this more expensive spiralizer and I’m glad I did. It really couldn’t work better.
