The spiralizer gives you license to actually play with your food - legit. I firmly believe this is going to be one of the hottest food trends of 2015, even though it is not a food group. Spiralizing vegetables and fruits gives recipes a fresh look, as well as offers people an alternative to how they use 'noodles' in recipes - since you can now make noodles out of actual food. Folks living with celiac or GF sensitivities can now enjoy recipes in a whole new way - even if you are trying to limit carb intake, this took is for you!
The Paderno Spiralizer has four, different blades so you can decide how thick or thin you want your food 'pasta' to be. At $49.95 - it's an investment in your kitchen you will not regret, available here: www.padernousa.com/4-blade-spiralizer/
To help fuel your spiralizing inspiration is a book I discovered by auther Ali Maffucci, owner of www.INSPIRALIZED.COM, which is where you can find her cookbook that is filled with a myriad of amazing recipes and adaptations for this food trend. She even shows you ways to make rice out of food - wow! Three of the recipes I feature on the segment are from the book, with slight adaptations to one.
Butternut Squash Macaroni and Cheese
Chicken and Carrot Noodle Soup
Apple Ambrosia Salad
Italian Cucumber Noodle Salad
