I'm in my mid 30s (gulp) and married to a great guy. We live in Northern VA with our crazy hound dog Cady. We love to travel, eat great food, drink good wine, cheer for our favorite sports teams and have fun with friends. This blog is a collection of things - travel stories, DC happenings, home improvement projects, recipes, and all kinds of fun adventures we're having!
What's a spiralizer you say? Well it takes vegetables or potatoes and turns them into spiraled noodle type things! I did some searching on Amazon and this is the one I ordered. There are several different options, including 3 and 4 blade models. I opted for the cheaper, highly recommended 3 blade option. I finally used it one night this week to make dinner!
I picked zucchini for my first spiralizer meal, since there are tons of recipes for zoodles. I found one from my favorite food blogger, Skinnytaste - Shrimp Scampi Zoodles.
It was so easy to use. You just put the zucchini on the crank, and twist!
The recipe calls for the zoodles to be sauteed for just 2 minutes - and shrimp only takes a few minutes to cook, too, so dinner was ready in no time! Perfect for a busy weeknight.
M was skeptical when I put the plate down in front of him... "What, is this like a healthier version of healthy?" Um, yes, it is. It was delicious! And he practically licked the plate, and commented that it was really good. Ha!
