In my continued quest to be healthy, I have come to know the zucchini as a major ally. Zucchini's texture makes it a perfect substitute for so many other elements in cooking. I use it to substitute lasagna noodles in vegetable lasagna, beans and meat in enchiladas, and now my newest obsession is to substitute it for noodles!
Using a spiralizer (I tried this spiralizer, but I've heard this one is also great), I've turned my beloved zucchini into pasta-like noodles- zoodles! I've played around with subbing them for spaghetti and asian noodles to make a couple of really good dishes. Here are the dishes I've tried.
|Asian Fried Zucchini Noodles - Recipe here.|
Modifications: I used egg whites and cooked the zucchini for 3-4 mins.
|Zucchini Spaghetti with Marinara Sauce - Recipe here |
Modifications: I made my own marinara and added mushrooms.
I plan on experimenting even more with these cool zoodles but am on the hunt for more recipes. Any suggestions?
