20 Awesome Spiralizer Recipes To Try Today

I love my spiralizer! It makes preparing vegetables quick, easy, and fun plus a little different to slicing and dicing. There’s also something very attractive about a pile of colourful vegetable spirals. Fruit and vegetable noodles can be used to make delicious raw salads, as a low carb pasta, noodle or rice replacement, added to stir fries, soups, latkes, or pancakes. You can even make baked treats like sweet potato curly fries, onion rings, or crispy apple chips.

What can I spiralize?

You can spiralize all kinds of veggies: zucchini/courgettes (known in the spiralizing world as “zoodles” or “courgetti”), carrots, cucumbers, sweet potato, pumpkin, beetroot, radish, turnips, even onions, cabbage and that broccoli stem you never know what to do with. You can also spiralize firmer fruits like apple and pear. The possibilities are endless (well, almost – a tomato won’t work) so get creative.

To get you started here are some of my favourite spiralizer recipes to inspire you. But before we start…

Which spiralizer should I get?

I use the classic Paderno spiralizer which I love, but there are many others on the market.

Don’t have a spiralizer?

If you haven’t yet invested in a spiralizer, don’t worry. You can use a julienne, mandolin, or a plain old vegetable peeler (you’ll get ribbons rather than spaghetti). If you have a lot of time on your hands, you can even recreate the same effect by slicing the vegetables thinly with a sharp knife.

How to use a spiralizer such as Paderno brand?

When using something like a zucchini or sweet potato, choose a straight, thick vegetable so it stays centred when fitted between two ends of the spirazlizer, and to make sure the noodles don’t get cut too short. Here is a little video on how to use the Paderno spiralizer, the same one I have at home, to make zucchini noodles, potato curly fries and apple chips.

6. Chicken and Chickpea Broccoli Pasta from Inspiralized (omit the chickpeas if following a legume free paleo diet, otherwise make sure to presoak them well before cooking)

Making noodles from the stem of a broccoli (which sometimes gets discarded) is a great way to use up the whole head of broccoli without wasting anything. Because of their firm texture, broccoli noodles (‘boodles’?) make a great substitute for pasta or noodles.

7. Slutty Low-Carb Pasta all Puttanesca from The Londoner (use some nutritional yeast flakes instead of Parmesan if avoiding all dairy)
