One of the most used tools in my kitchen is The Spiralizer. If you want to make noodles from veggies or fruit, you need this spiral cutter.
This is the one I use. You should check here and here and compare prices. I have the Paderno World Cuisine Model which is usually a bit more than the Epica. They appear similar but I have not compared them side-by-side to verify this. The price fluctuates often, sometimes being as low as $21 but usually it is around $28-$30. The only store local to me that stocks them sells them for $40.
So you bought one and now you’re wondering, “What do I do with it?” Besides the typical zucchini noodles (zoodles) with marinara, I gotta tell you this gadget will help you make a gazillion new dishes. Zucchini, sweet potato, carrots, beets, eggplant, they all work well in this cutter I fondly refer to as The Noodler. Plus it’s fun to use, kids love it! Below I’ve rounded up my favorite Noodler recipes from my own kitchen, as well as those from other fabulous food friends.
My absolute favorite dish to use The Noodler with is my Japchae. Click through to the post to see what folks are saying about this dish, it’s a BIG favorite of lots of folks.
One of my summer favorites is Lemon Almond Pesto over spiralized zucchini noodles. This one is from my own kitchen but I hope you’ll soon find it in your kitchen!
This great Summer dish comes from Karina at Gluten-Free Goddess. Her Raw Zucchini Pasta in a Vegan Curry Cashew Cream Sauce sounds perfect and it’s beautiful!
Another from my kitchen, Pumpkin Alfredo with Sweet Potato Noodles. I usually eat this raw, but also like it warm with the noodles sauteed for just a few minutes to soften them a bit.
For those who are enamored with Sunbutter, Lauren from Oatmeal with a Fork shares Spicy Sunbutter NoodlesThis dish is on my menu this week. If you aren’t a Sunbutter fan, just sub PB or almond butter. Super versatile!
From The Urban Poser, a visually stunning dish, Raw Noodles & Veggies with Raw Asian Pesto Sauce.
From Rawmazing, Avocado Kale Pesto with Zucchini Noodles. So creamy!
From Averie Cooks, a delightful Raw Pasta Salad with Creamy Lemon Herb Dressing. Averie says this dish came together in 5 minutes. Perfect for busy days when you still crave a light and healthy meal!
