Spiralizer vegetable recipes are so much fun and really good for you. Do you own a Spiralizer yet? There are a few different kinds you can buy if you do not own one. Spiralizers are great because they can turn fresh vegetables into a healthy pasta shape in minutes. Vegetables that taste and look like noodles are a winning combination with kids and adults.
The most popular Spiralizer you can buy is this model. It is less than $30 and comes with five different blades. It is very versatile and can not only make spiral veggies, but can also cut veggies with the different blades. This model comes with a lifetime warranty!
Another great option is this model. It comes with 3 blades and is under $15!
If you want to start with the simplest choice, you should choose this handheld model with three blades for only $8.
What vegetables can you spiralize? I have had great success with all of these:
- Sweet Potatoes/Yams
- Broccoli Stems
Don’t stop there. On the sweeter side of the menu, apples can turn into noodle just as easily, along with a full rainbow of more exotic fruits and vegetables. Once you have a spiralizer, you have instant access to endless pasta replacements. Keep on whirling you way through the produce bin with abandon! There are just a few guidelines to determine the best bets for noodling:
- Don’t use anything with a hollow or highly seeded core
- Pieces should be at least 2 inches in diameter and 2 inches long to create full
- Firmer, more solid-fleshed options will yield the best results
No matter which model you buy, vegetable noodles are minutes away. Do not be afraid of these time saving devices. You will find lots of great recipes here to try and learn ways you can add more healthy vegetables into your diet. If you have never considered a spiralizer vegetable recipes to add to your menu, now is the time to try!
Spiralizer Vegetable Recipes
1.This dump and bake zucchini pizza from The Seasoned Mom looks so good for a summer dinner. No flour is used for the crust. Anything with the word pizza in it is good by my family! Just spiralized zucchini, eggs, and cheeses for the crust!
2. I love the use of sweet potato noodles in this Coconut Curry soup from Veggie Inspired. This soup can be prepared in less than 30 minutes! We are definitely trying this as soon as it is cold outside. My son loves curry soups.
3. These gluten free meatballs over zucchini noodles look so delicious. Cooking on the weekends created these pesto meatballs as a perfect complement to the summer squash spiralized noodles. The addition of sun dried tomatoes in the meatballs is a great idea.
4. SpaBettie used 3 vegetables in this dish and turned them all into noodles. I love the combination of asparagus, sweet potato and zucchini in this healthy dish. And guess what she got for her birthday, a spiralizer! Such a perfect present.
5.This raw vegan noodle salad is prettier than the rainbow. Check out all the vegetables The Stingy Vegan used to create this salad: cucumber, zucchini, carrot, pepper, cabbage, tomato, and onion. After topping these spiralized veggies with a light dressing it would make a perfect lunch for me!
6. I love the big ribbon noodles in this Spring Pasta dish from A Side of Sweet. She used a mandoline instead of a spiralizer to get the larger noodle shape. This dish has a light sauce with a yogurt base. The pine nuts, feta, and fresh basil look divine.
7. Spiralized zucchini noodles in a low fat alfredo sauce? Yes, please! I think this dish looks so decadent, but in reality it is way less calories than an actual bowl of fettuccine alfredo. Wholesome Yum has all the secrets on making this lighter summer dish.
8. This dish is great if you do not have time to spiralize tons of vegetables. Coffee and Crayons combines the ease of ramen noodles with the freshness of zucchini noodles and creates a lovely dinner that my kids would love. The sesame seeds, cilantro and poached egg are the perfect toppings.
9. I love recipes that are super fast. This 10 minute one pot spiralized zucchini soup from Peas and Crayons looks easy and delicious. Perfect dish for those nights you are hungry for something filling but have no time to make something complicated.
10. This vegetarian souvlaki from The Healing Tomato is a delicious spiralizer sandwich. Both zucchini and butternut squash are spiralized and combined with portobello mushrooms and green peppers. A tortilla is heated up, the veggies are added and a little feta cheese goes on top. Perfect lunch time sandwich option!
