Noodles noodles & ZOODLES!!
These spiraled zucchinis are a great substitute for regular noodles. They are low-calorie, low-carb, and are an alternative option if you have certain diet restrictions such as gluten. One great thing about these is you can flavor and spice them up however you want! All you need is a zucchini squash (yellow or green is fine), some olive oil, and a spiralizer. I use this one. I like it because it’s super simple to use and it is small, so it doesn’t take up a ton of room in my cupboard/counter!
1/2 Tbsp of olive oil
Desired seasonings. Some options are: garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper, chili powder, etc.
1. Wash zucchini with water. Use spiralizer to make long, noodle-like strips.
2. Put olive oil in bottom of frying pan. Turn on coil to medium-high heat, and add zucchini to pan. Add desired spices.
3. Sauté zucchini for 5-7 minutes, or until the noodles turn tender. *If you prefer your noodles to be slightly crunchier, sauté for less time.
4. Use zoodles with spaghetti sauce, cheese, or alredo, etc! The options are endless!
*Note that the zucchini will shrink in size once it is cooked. Typically one medium zucchini can serve two people.
