How To Make A Gluten Free "Pasta" Dish From Veggies And The Spiralizer



    I am going to show you how to make a gluten free "pasta" dish by using three vegetables, some spices, and a cool tool called the Spiralizer from Common Sense Goods. This "pasta" is not only gluten free but is also low carb, low in calories and high in fiber. This "pasta" is made from carrots, zucchini and tomatoes. The veggies are made into strips the look like spaghetti by using this vegetable spiral slicer.

    So what is the Spiralizer vegetable spiral slicer? This cool tool transforms raw vegetables into pasta-like noodles shapes that are the perfect healthy alternative to carb heavy pasta. This veggie pasta is great for people who want to eat healthier, so gluten free, eat paleo, lose weight, or just want to make pretty dishes. This tool will also encourage you kids to eat more veggies. The vegetable noodles are made by spiral slicing raw veggies like zucchini, carrots, cucumbers, or sweet potatoes into long strands that look like spaghetti.


      I love that this tool is dishwasher safe and made from stainless steel. You can also easily wash the Spiralizer by hand too. I just rinse mine under water and use the includes brush to clean it. It also comes with an ecookbook that has 17 recipes with color pictures that uses the veggie noodles. I can't wait to make the Twisted Thai Salad, Creamy Cucumber Salad, and Salad Rolls. This tool will be perfect for this summer when you garden gives you an abundance of zucchini.
