Ode to the Spiralizer

I know I haven't blogged in a long time, but it's because nothing has really inspired me lately...that is, until I got my Spiralizer!

I have been wanting one of these things for many years and I finally got one for Christmas.  Even though someone already discounted it as a trendy kitchen accessory that I will never use, I love it so.  I will definitely be using it a lot.

Easy, beautiful "Zoodles"

It's perfect for me because it is a great way to get vegetables into your meals without having to eat a meal that tastes too vegetabley, and you can basically make anything into a pasta-like meal with it.  I actually don't like pasta much at all but adore pasta sauces and all accompanying toppings, so I can get the good stuff I like without all of the calories of the pasta itself.

And it leaves this funny shaped thing behind in it's spiralizing wake.

This is what I made last night and it was wonderful.  It was also my first time using anchovy filets.  Exciting!


This is what I want to make next.

Spiralized Sushi Bowl with Salmon Sashimi and Ginger Miso Dressing

And thanks to this website I have endless inspiration.

Also, I really want to be healthy with all of Spiralizer creations, but doesn't this just scream, "Make curly fries next!"

I think so.
