An Overview On Spiralizers
Need to up your veggie game but intimidated by those whole foods? Take your veggies and turn them into delicious noodles for an easier, prettier way of eating them. The only tool you’ll need for this is a spiralizer. This kitchen tool will change the way you look at veggies forever.
Let’s begin by taking a look at the different kinds of spiralizers. There are several different types of spiralizers. You’ll find tabletop spiralizers like the Brieftons Vegetable Spiralizer 7-Blade, the OXO Tabletop Spiralizer with Suction, 3-Blade and the Spiralizer Heavy Duty Vegetable Slicer, 7-Blade. You place these on your countertop over a cutting board, place the veggie in the cradle and crank the handle to slice the veggie against the blade. There are also hand-held units like the Fullstar 3-in-1 Vegetable Spiralizer Slicer. Those are hand-propelled and typically have an attached container for the veggies to be stored in until ready to eat. You might even be able to find electric spiralizers to make life in the kitchen super easy.
When using your spiralizer, it’s important to know that some veggies work great in a spiralizer and others do not. The number one food used in a spiralizer is zucchini, as it turns into “zoodles” or zucchini noodles. You can use the spiralizer with sweet potatoes, butternut squash and carrots to get similar results. If presentation is important in your cooking, use the spiralizer to make curly cucumbers, thin-sliced beets, or string carrots. There is so much creativity you can have with the spiralizer but it’s also important to note that not all veggies will move through the tool so well. Things that are softer or crumbly like broccoli or cauliflower will only jam up your blades and create a mess.
Another way to work around veggies that may not respond well to a spiralizer is to play around with the different blades. Some blades create a thicker slicing pattern than others. If you have a veggie that is large like a sweet potato or butternut squash, you’ll want a larger slice. For veggies that respond well to thin slicing, you can use a smaller blade. Most spiralizers will have several options for blades for you to use accordingly.
Whether you are a seasoned pro at spiralizing veggies or just starting out, you can explore tons of different recipes to make healthy eating much more enjoyable with the spiralizer. Make the time to experiment with your favorites and you will find such flexibility with nutritious foods. Healthy eating shouldn’t be bland and boring so use a spiralizer to spice things up.
