6 Delicious Spiralizer Recipes
Spiralizers essentially make noodles out of hard/dense vegetables and fruit. They're perfect for making spiral slices from firm fruits and vegetables like apples, onions, carrots, zucchinis, cucumbers, cabbages, potatoes, beets, turnips, rutabagas, cucumbers, and more. It’s a great tool for (with your supervision, of course) getting the kids involved, since it will remind them of those cool Play-doh extruder kits (it kind of feels like using a big pencil sharpener!), and since spiralized... vegetables look so cool, it’s quite likely that they will be more inclined to eat some of these vegetables. The USDA recommends eating 3-5 servings of vegetables per day, so this is a fun and interesting way to incorporate vegetables into the meal.
