Zucchini "Noodles"

Zucchini noodles are easy and quick to make. If you are eating low- or no-carb give these a try. You can make noodles with a vegetable peeler or with a spiralizing tool such as Joyce Chen's Saladacco Spiralizer. or the Benriner Cook Helper Slicer. In the photo above, the noodles to the left were made with a veggie peeler and those to the right with the spiralizer.

Peel off skin of one medium zucchini. Make "noodles" with a vegetable peeler or spiralizer. Sauté in a frying pan along with:

1-2 tablespoons OLIVE OIL
A good dose of GARLIC POWDER or one minced GARLIC clove
SEA SALT and GROUND PEPPER to taste

Transfer to plate and top with your favorite sauce or  Veggie Vodka Sauce.

Post Update October 25, 2010:

Heather, one of my favorite readers, shared another brand of spiralizer that has gotten some pretty good reviews. We both have been having issues with our Joyce Chen model, it can be somewhat cumbersome. So before making your purchase, look into the Benriner Cook Helper Slicer.
