Zoodles. Fun name, great taste. Zucchini noodles, or zoodles for lazy people, are just that. Noodles made from zucchini. They are gluten free, low carb and nutrient rich. Zoodles are also incredible easy to make though many recipes will call for a spiralizer, julienne peeler or mandoline to create them. I do not have any of those devices so I used a normal vegetable peeler to make the thin strips and it worked a treat.
As I am saving up vegetable scraps for making my own stock the first strip, which is all peel, went into my scraps container. Once the first strip was done I just continues making strips down the entire length of the zucchini and rotated it as needed to create as many strips as possible.
Pairing this with a zesty salad dressing, finely chopped apple pieces and some beautiful pomegranate seeds made for a refreshing and substantial salad. You should try it out today!
