Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Let me let you in on a little secret. I am a sucker for cool kitchen gadgets. I even have an entire pinboard dedicated to them. I wish I had the kitchen space for all the cool gadgets I want, but sadly I do not.
That’s why I love this little thing, the Superswizz Spiral Slicer. A handy dandy little gadget that lets you turn any vegetable into awesome long skinny “noodles” to use in your recipes. As delicious as pasta is, sometimes I just don’t want that really filling feeling I get after eating it. Plus, eating veggies like noodles is really kind of fun and makes me feel fancy. The second I saw this thing, I knew I needed to have it. I decided, since zucchini is my favorite vegetable of all time (I even loved them as a kid!) that my first veggie noodle would be a brown butter zucchini noodle, yum right? The spiralizer is a strange looking gizmo, but it’s actually really easy to use. It’s concept is similar to that of a pencil sharpener, you stick the veggie in and twist, and out comes the veggie noodles! There are two different sizes, one side is more of a spaghetti noodle and the other is like an angel hair. I recommend using heartier veggies (think carrots) on the smaller side and stick to the large side for everything else. When you get down to the nub, use the included pin plate to twist the remaining pieces through the spiralizer, (I think the little cone is really cute), you’ll have a big bowl of veggie pasta, ready for cooking! I very quickly sauteed my zucchini noodles in browned butter for about 5-7 minutes, tossing frequently and sprinkling with salt and pepper. Transfer your noodles to your plate and enjoy! You can use your noodles for a side dish (like I did) or as the main course. It’s a great way to cut carbs and to increase your vegetable intake. When cleaning, use the inclosed bottle brush, the blades inside the spiralizer are very sharp and can cut you very easily. Rinse with water and let dry, or run it through the top rack of your dishwasher. Have you ever used a vegetable spiralizer? What types of veggies do you use with it?
