I've been known to get hooked on certain kitchen gadgets and use them obsessively. This is what happened with my Spiralizer.
When I spotted my new favorite kitchen gadget, I couldn't wait to start churning out some amazing, healthy recipes. I'm sure you've also have spotted a new breed of noodles. And, I'm not talking about rice, corn, or quinoa spaghetti...I'm talking spiralized vegetables.
I'm sure once you get your hands on the Spiralizer you'll love it. It's an inexpensive tool that turns fresh veggies into faux-noodles. It isn’t just for the carb-averse. Everyone from home cooks to restaurant chefs are spiralizing. The first dish I made was a butternut squash noodle dish. From that moment on, I knew we would have a very beautiful cooking relationship.
Here my favorite things to make with this trendy tool.

Apple plus cabbage slaw equals delicious. The combination of tart-yet-sweet apple with cabbage, topped off with poppy seed dressing will leave you very satisfied.
