What I am about to show you has changed many of my dinners for good. It used to be that in order to have a “spaghetti-like” dish without the high amounts of unneeded calories/carbohydrates, I would have to cook a spaghetti squash like in the recipe Super Simple Spaghetti Squash. However recently I saw a fellow lean health professional, Registered Dietician Georgie Fear (www.askgeorgie.com), cooking up a storm making spaghetti-like meals with zucchini, beets, carrots, you name it! I was very intrigued and luckily she shared how she did it.
Ever heard of a spiralizer? A spiralizer is a contraption that was made in order to make garnishes and also curly potatoes. However, its true potential is how it turns healthy veggies into long spaghetti-like strands with ease! Georgie recommended the World Cuisine brand spiralizer, which you can buy at amazon for about 35 bucks. Here is a demo of how it works.
This was all pretty easy and kind of fun too! I will say though that you will likely need a few zucchinis in order to make enough because it cooks down and is also very tasty. I will post how I made a super delicious pesto chicken zucchini “pasta” dish using this method soon. 🙂
