The original. Courgetti is the one that began the trend of vegetable noodles. What better way is there to cut out carbs than to make your vegetables look like carbs? None at all.
Hassle-free ‘slaw, neatly shredded cabbage in a salad, a simple spiral but a good’un nonetheless.
As the summer approaches, it’s time to jazz up the water jug or, far better, the G+Ts. Spiralize some cucumber into ribbons and drape it into the water.
If courgette spaghetti is courgetti, is a beetroot noodle a boodle? A beetoodle?! If you’re looking to impress with a salad, spiralize the beetroot into mess-free boodles. No purple juice in sight.
The days of weeping into a bowl of chopped onions are past. Whether it’s to make healthy baked onion rings or to avoid crying as you chop them, a spiralizer is the way.
6. Broccoli stems
Got kids who don’t like broccoli? Try this ploy. Fool them by spiralizing the broccoli stems into noodles (broccoodles?). Drizzle it in parmesan, lemon and garlic. They’ll never suspect your trickery…
7. Sweet potato
Last year was the age of the sweet potato fries. Now, it’s time for the sweet potato spiral. Make healthy (and, most importantly, fancy) baked fries.
Here’s a curve ball. A spiralized apple. Whether it’s in ribbons or noodles, it’s the garnish of champions. Chuck it in salads, on tarts, draped over deserts, glaze them, stick it in a ‘slaw. It’s an Instagram-ready endeavour.
Homemade curly fries? Enough said.
10. Butternut or yellow squash
Whether or not you enjoy a squash, no can argue with the aesthetics. Vibrant yellow noodles that are good for you too? Heck yes. And, with a bit of pancetta and a poached egg (courtesy of the culinary geniuses at Inspiralized)… bejesus. What a combination.
So, there you have it. All you could ever need to know about our Tower Spiralizer. All that’s left is to try one for yourself.
