Get the most out of your spiralizer with these delicious and inspiring low-carb recipes!
Nearly everyone loves a heaping bowl of delicious pasta—but nearly everyone, too, feels at least a twinge of guilt about eating one. Whether you’re eating paleo, low carb, gluten free, or just trying to curb those excess empty calories, carbohydrate-packed pasta can’t be high on your healthy-eating list.
But what if you could eat that heaping bowl without experiencing the guilt? With a spiralizer, you can! A spiralizer is an inexpensive, simple-to-use tool that produces spiral cuts, shoestrings, and fruit and vegetable “noodles” for adding new texture to pasta dishes, stir-fries, soups, and salads. Craving a big plate of spaghetti but don’t want to spend an hour at the gym? In a matter of minutes you can spiralize super-thin zucchini “zoodles” ready to cover with your favorite pasta sauce. And it doesn’t begin and end with zucchini, either: a spiralizer can make quick work out of carrots, sweet potatoes, beets—even apples! The Spiralized Kitchen is perfect for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.
Step-by-step instructions, practical techniques, and mouthwatering photographs accompany a variety of fun, simple recipes using fresh ingredients from Leslie Bilderback, the author of Mug Cakes. With this book you have what you need to spiralize every meal—and no one but the chef has to know it isn’t real pasta!
