One of the best ways to enjoy your favourite pasta and noodle dishes without the heavy carb count is to replace the pasta with a spiralized vegetable. Read on to learn all about how to do this!

 

Before you do anything... get a spiralizer!

A spiralizer is a kitchen tool which allows you to cut vegetables into long, ribbon-like pieces. Having one of these makes it incredibly easy to cut the vegetables into the desired shape.

Then, you pick your vegetable

Some vegetables are more suited to being turned into a long ribbon than others, and these veggies are zucchini, carrot, butternut squash, beets, broccoli stems, yellow squash, kohlrabi, and cucumber.

After that, spiralize them!

Generally, cutting off the top and bottom of the vegetable (if anything on the above list except for broccoli stems), placing the widest side of the veggie closest to the blade, and cranking the handle is the best way to get beautiful, long ribbons. If you wish to peel the veggie before spiralizing, which is especially important for butternut squash, feel free to do so.

Cook your veggies!

All of the veggies mentioned, except for cucumber, work as great pasta substitutes in both warm and cold dishes. Cucumber, on the other hand, is best kept for cold dishes, and should be spiralized on the day the dish is served.

Here are some delicious recipes for you to try out!
