How to Make Zucchini Noodles



For next year I am making one of my New Year's resolutions to cook more. I started a little late this year, but I've found some really good blogs that have shared some great recipes. I'm looking forward to more recipes to try and to share on the blog for 2015. One of the things I'll be incorporating in my menu are zucchini noodles. They are super easy to make and a great alternative to regular noodles. You can eat them raw in salads or prepare them like regular pasta. Personally I prefer to sauté them in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil and season with just a little bit of salt and pepper.



I used a vegetable spiralizer I purchased from Amazon to make the zucchini come out like noodles. No joke I literally ordered it and the next day it was on my door step. I just love Amazon! Anyways there are many kinds of spiralizers you can use.  If you just have a regular slicer lying around your house, you can use that one too. I purchased the SpiraLife Vegetable Spiralizer and Recipe eBook . It comes with two blades, a cleaning brush, and a recipe eBook.




All you do is twist your zucchini in the spiralizer and voila! You have yourself some zucchini noodles. Now at this point you can eat them raw but like I said I wanted mine sautéed.


I placed my zucchini noodles in a wok with some extra virgin olive oil and some salt and pepper to taste. I stirred everything together for a few minutes until zucchini got tender and then they were done. Plain and simple! I ended up using three average sized zucchinis, enough for my husband and I.




Have you ever tried zucchini noodles?

  1. The zucchini noodles look really cool! I haven't tried those, but I made squash ribbons one time that I served mixed in with some pasta, and they were really good.

  2. Your spiralizer looks so different than mine! I have the one that's big white and plastic - basically it looks like those things you use to cut apples with for pies! Now that it's winter I haven't used it much but I guarantee it will come back out in warmer weather!

    1. I saw that one too, but I went for that small one because it actually had good review on Amazon.
