Spiralized Zucchini and tomatoes

vegetable spiralizer

I’m a bit of a kitchen gadget junkie. Seriously, I have a strawberry slicer, a dooby that I use to make shoe string strips of my carrot and a so many different zesters it’s verging on a problem. I do try to not buy every kitchen gadget I see but it’s not easy.

I knew my cause was lost when I started to see recipes popping up with ‘veggie speghetti’ and talk of spiral zucchini/courgette and all manner of squash turned into speghetti. Finally a friend of mine got one and she raved and raved about it. I hopped on line lickety-split and ordered one. I arrived on Thursday and I’ve used it twice.

I decided to go for a full on spiralizer but they come in all shapes and sizes- this is mine. It’s super easy to use and dare I admit it, fun!

They make long stands of zucchini and a couple a few c-shaped ones.

I wanted a light lunch so I simply coated a pan with Fry Light and sautéed the zucchini. A little salt and petter to taste and some chopped San Marzano tomatoes and it’s ready. start to finish 20 minutes maybe?

I’ve started a Spiralized veggies Pinterest board to collect any recipes. Do you have a spiralizer? Care to share any recipes?

    Yumm that looks really nice. I’m going through a bit of a pesto phase and would be tempted to stir a spoon in. I just need one of those spiralizer thingies!

      my first batch I used pesto along with prawns, mushrooms and peppers- was delish but less is more in this case.

    I really really want a spiraliser – in fact I would go so far as to say I NEED one!
