I am so excited to share with you about the new gadget I recently received as a gift from one of my great friends. When I opened the box, I was a little unsure of what this small gadget was until she explained. See I had been talking for months about finding a kitchen tool that could make zucchini noodles aka “zoodles”. Zoodles are an alternative to your go-to pasta, hold the flavor of the sauce and add flavor and nutrients to your dish. My friend remembered that I had been talking about this and took time to find something to make my zoodle desire a reality. See this tool may be small, but it can do wonders for you in the kitchen. You can find this julienne peeler at Williams and Sonoma.
I know that there are other gadgets that can do something similar to this, but most are more expensive and larger and who needs another pricey gadget taking up space in your cabinets…I know I don’t. With this amazing new gadget I have made zoodles with marinara for my family and they liked them so much, I had to make more that night. I have also julienned carrots with the zucchini for a quick lunch and then topped them with a fried egg over easy. So delish!
Simple Zoodle Recipe
1 medium zucchini
1 tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil
First, julienne the zucchini to make your zoodles. Then heat the oil in the pan. When pan is hot add zoodles and season with favorite seasonings. Let them cook for about 2-3 minutes; stirring occasionally. Serve warm and enjoy.
I hope you will give zoodles a try and tell me what you think. I also would love to hear about some of your favorite kitchen gadgets. Have a fabulous foodie Friday!
