...when you're vegan.
Or gluten free. Or trying to lose weight. Or just in love with the taste of red sauce but really not too psyched about regular, plain old noodles.
I've been thinking about buying a veggie spiralizer for a while now. Like 3 years. They're under $30 -- how I waited this long is really beyond me?!?
Anyway, mine came in the mail and I tried it out this week and I think my life has been forever changed. This thing is amazingly fun and pumps out handfuls of green, low-cal, zucchini noodles.
So when I'm not eating green shakes, vegan homemade muesli or coconut yogurt, I'm cooking up some zucchini pasta in about 10 minutes flat.
Here's what you do:
Run the zucchini through the veggie spiralizer.
Heat olive oil and garlic in a saucepan.
Saute for 3-4 minutes until zucchini noodles are soft but not too soft.
Serve topped with (vegan) tomato sauce or homemade pesto (recipe to come -- this one has been a staple for me for a few years.)
Super easy, delicious and carnivorously friendly -- you can just cook protein and leave it on the side for your flesh eating friends.
