Zucchini noodle “zoodles” with a spiral slicer

Also called zoodles or zucchetti, zucchini noodles made with a spiral slicer are a fun, fork twirl-able staple food for anyone looking to add a nutrient-dense, gluten-free/grain-free, Paleo compatible noodle into their meals.

You will need a spiral slicer like this one to create long, thin strings.

We made zoodles in our Paleo-inspired staple foods cooking class and everyone loved them! Here’s a “how to” excerpt from our class:

“This recipes requires a spiral slicer. This is a tool worthy of investment if you are serious about being grain free.

  • Slice ends of zuchinni off and slice zuch in half.
  • Then insert each half on the spiralizer and use smallest triangle blade for small noodles.
  • Rotate until all of zuch is used, repeating for each zuchinni half.
  • Cook on low-medium heat in olive oil for 10 minutes. 1 zuch per person.  OR bake in the oven on a tray lined with paper towels (to soak up moisture) at 250 for 20  mins.
  • Top this with pesto, sausage, and fresh tomatoes or a homemade tomato sauce.

It’s as simple as that! You can spiral slice sweet potatoes for homemade fries, cucumbers, apples, etc.
