Spiralizing! My New Obsession.
A few months ago I gave away my pasta machine as it was too much of a faff to make gluten free pasta with, it ended up with lots of holes. The dried gf pasta tastes fine but I wanted something healthy, fresh and quick, so I gave into temptation and bought a spiralizer. Oh what fun!! From a plain courgette to courgetti in a flash. O.K. I sound like an advert, but I love this machine! I used it for the first time today and made a sort of courgetti bolognese. So so simple! Great if you are watching your carbs, and I'm sure children would eat it even if they don't usually like courgette (zucchini to my American friends). There are different blades that come with it for different shapes, and you can use different veg. There are lots of other things you can do with it so over the next few weeks I will be playing. Here's my first attempt.
Place the veg onto the grip, and turn the handle, it's as simple as that.
Out of the other end comes very long courgetti, I used a scissors to cut it to shorter lengths to make it easier to eat.
I made a pasta sauce then added the courgetti for the last few minutes to warm it through but still with a little bite. You could also cook the courgetti separately for a few minutes. There are lots of different spiralizers, and of course I'm not being sponsored, I bought this one as I have their recipe book. Now I've just got to find somewhere to keep it.
