Zucchini is a very flexible vegetable. It can be used simply as a tasty side dish or prepared in many different ways to make full entrees.
With the right tools Zucchini can become a great alternative to pasta!
With a Vegetable Spiralizer
The best way to create zucchini noodles is to buy a vegetable spiralizer which can be found on amazon.com or sear’s website for around $30.
This machine takes all the work out of making the noodles: simply place the zucchini in the machine and twist the handle!
Out comes beautiful spaghetti size noodles!
Simply toss in boiling water for 2 minutes then drain in a colander.
For crisper noodles these taste great raw: no need to cook!
With a Julianne Peeler
Another great tool for making fettuccine style noodles is using a Julianne peeler!
This takes more time but results in wider noodles that are great with a vegan Alfredo sauce!
Once again these can either be boiled for 2 minutes or eaten raw!
