21 Delicious Veggie Noodles To Make With Your Spiralizer

Every zucchini is just a bowl of zoodles waiting to be set free.

If you haven’t tried a spiralizer yet, it’s time to jump on this (beautiful) bandwagon. Just LOOK at these mesmerizing curls made out of zucchini.

A spiralizer works by rotating a sturdy vegetable through a blade, turning out pasta-like strands of zucchini, sweet potato, carrots, cucumber, and more. Then you can cook your veggie noodles (or not) and serve them all kinds of delicious ways.

But what kind of spiralizer should you buy?

The OXO spiralizer (above) comes with color coded blades, a storage box, and a suction cup to keep the spiralizer stable as you crank. We like this Paderno model, too. No matter which you buy, look for one that’s stable and sturdy. You don’t want to feel like the food is going to fall out or that it takes a lot of strength to crank things through.

And once you’ve got it, here are 21 cool recipes to in-spira-lize you. LOL, sorry.
