Noodles made out of Zucchini
Yup. We were a little underwhelmed too. Until we tried these imposter noodles! And, oh my gosh, they are delicious. They’re called “zoodles” and they’re oodles of flavor without all the carbs of regular noodles.
Plus, they’ve got all the health benefits of eating your recommended daily dosage of vegetables…because you are!
Make spaghetti-shaped zoodles yourself with a hand-held vegetable spiralizer, egg-noodle-shaped zoodles with a counter-top vegetable spiralizer, and lasagna-shaped zoodles with a mandolin slicer.
Once you’ve sliced your zucchini, creating gorgeous zoodles, simply place your zoodles in an airtight container and leave them in the fridge for 6-8 hours to remove any moisture. Then, place your zoodles in a pot of boiling water for 1-2 minutes.
They cook faster than you can say zoodles!
If you plan to put them in a casserole or microwave them, you don’t need to boil them at all. Simply bake them according to the recipe you’re using or microwave them on reheat.
Zoodles stay fresh for about a week when refrigerated in an airtight container.
Try making zoodles tonight! If you’re anything like us you will be overwhelmed with happiness.
