AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Eat your vegetables. Everyone from your mother to First Lady Michelle Obama has said those same words and still no one has introduced recipes outside the time tested that will modernize the traditional carbohydrate laden meals. 150 Best Spiralizer Recipes will change all that.

Well, a revolution is about to begin with the introduction of Spiralizers to the market. Spiralizers are more than simply switching traditional wheat based pasta and substituting with zucchini noodles (which can be accomplished using a handheld potato peeler) adding turkey meat and/or turkey meat balls with a classic marinara sauce and one has created a low carb, low calorie, surprisingly delicious meal.

And that is not the only spiralizer recipe that is covered in 150 Best Spiralizer Recipes, complied by Marilyn Haugen and Jennifer Williams.

150 Best Spiralizer Recipes, introduces new and exciting way to add fruits and vegetables into every meal and disguises the vegetables blending them into traditional appearing meals.

Traditional wheat based pastas, spaghetti, from angel hair to fettucine, are a staple of most kitchens. These types of noodles can be replaced with Spiralizers, from Parsnip to Zucchini to Kohlrabi. I know, impossible, my child, myself, husband would never, never eat Parsnip Spaghetti.

That can be a general reaction. The idea, a bit deceptive, is to be creative and create Parsnip Spaghetti with Pine Nut Basil Pesto. It even sounds delicious.

The 150 recipes include Thai Sala with Peanut lime Dressing, Spinach and Apple Salad with Pecans, Cranberries and Feta, Pancetta and Lentil with Zucchini Pasta, Curry Beef with Sweet Potato Noodles, Chicken trazzini, Summer Squash Galette, Savory Skillet Turkey Sausage with Potatoes – Celeriac Noodles and Mexican Chayote Squash Spaghetti Pie.

The Spiralizers tool range from the handheld to the industrial size which is reminiscent of a Food processor. Testing out the idea a hand held potato peeler would deliver Fettuccini size noodles, and still produce the same results.  

Spiralizers are relatively inexpensive even for the industrial size which runs in the $19.99 to $29.99 range and the handheld which can run as low as $6.99. A small investment with huge rewards from guilt free pasta to increased healthy eating.

Potato curls or curly fries would be the nearest spiralizer vegetable that are common or known in diets. Moving away from the deep fried to sautéed, steamed maybe seem less fun it is also less calories, less damaging and more healthy.

150 Best Spiralizer Recipes has been organized into chapters for Gluten-free, Paleo, Vegetarian/Vegan and Raw diets so it is easy for anyone following these types of diets to immediately find a recipes that is inviting.

Q & A with Marilyn Haugen

Q. What do you think are the key upcoming spiralizer trends for 2016?

A. I think more and more we will see traditional recipes begin adapted to use spiralizer vegetables and fruits. Look at the recipe for Sweet Potato Noodle Buns. Who would have ever thought we’d be substituting wheat buns with buns made with vegetables. I’m also seeing more type’s pf spiralizer on the market, so I think it will be easier for the home cook to choose a spiralizer that makes sense for them. Spiralizers are certainly here to stay.

Q. How does your own health philosophy tie into this book?

A: Like many of us, I knew I should have ore vegetable into my diet, but it is hard sometimes. I am also a die-hard cheese lover, not surprising since I grew up in Wisconsin. So for me, I can get more vegetables in to my diet, cut down on the calories and still add my cheese. Have my cheese and eat it too?

Q. What would be your top five tips be for someone just starting to use a spiralizer.

A: 1. Start Simple. Choose an easy recipe and just experiment with getting the spiral cutting down.

2. Do go to the Farmers market or grocery store and but out everything you see I’m guilt If you but too much you risk produce spoiling which can be disheartening.

3. Take a look at our pantry suggestion and make sure you have a good base that will make the most of t else recipes easy to make. You don’t need to buy a lot of specialty ingredients to make spiraling for you.
