Zoodles? Say What?
by Abby Forman, MS RD
You may have noticed a new colorful trend popping up around online and in restaurants – zoodles. This is the term for using a spiralizer on zucchini to make a noodle substitute. They work great for those looking for a lower carbohydrate option to regular pasta or a fun way to get vegetables into their diet for summer. You can actually use the same technique on a variety of vegetables such as carrots, yellow squash, parsnips and beets. Simply blanch them in boiling water and serve with sauce. You can also use them raw in a cold summer salad for a unique texture!
If you don’t have a spiralizer you can use a julienne peeler or cut the vegetables into thin strips. The sky is the limit and zoodles of new ways to get in your veggies!
