When was the last time you actually had fun cooking dinner or doing food prep? I don't mind food prep but I wouldn't say it's "fun"…that was until we got a spiralizer! Scott was pretty skeptical at first and said it was a waste of money…that was until he started using it! He started acting like a little kid and trying to find other things we could spiralize. He even said "kids would love to do this!".
We have the Excalibur Spiral Vegetable Slicer from Kohl's which has an interchangeable blade so that you can make a variety of different cuts and sizes. They also have a few different types of spiral slicers, ranging from $14.99 to $119.99. We've only done sweet potato and zucchini in ours but there are so many options!
Below are a few ways we have used our vegetable slicer.
Clean Eat Recipe: Spiraled Sweet Potato Shoestring Fries!
- Sweet Potatoes
- Olive Oil
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper (for easy clean up)
2. Wash and prep your sweet potatoes by cutting the ends off. Make sure to cut the ends off leaving a flat surface to make using the slicer easier.
3. Place one end of the sweet potato on the prong and the other on the white spiky side.
4. Turn the handle and the sweet potato will go through the slicer. You can place a bowl or baking sheet on the other side to catch your spiralized sweet potato!
5. Drizzle olive oil (or use an olive oil mister) on the sweet potatoes and sprinkle with sea salt & black pepper.
6. Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy (keep an eye on the oven as these will burn easily).
These will not be as crispy like real fried sweet potato but as a healthier alternative these are great! We've mixed these in with our Honey Chipotle Chicken and even topped our Lean Mean Cheeseburger with them!
Clean Eat Recipe: Sautéed Spiralized Zucchini
- Coconut Oil
- Sea Salt
- Black Pepper
1. Wash and prep your zucchini by cutting the ends off. Make sure to cut the ends off leaving a flat surface to make using the slicer easier.
2. Place one end of the zucchini on the prong and the other on the white spiky side.
3. Turn the handle and the zucchini will go through the slicer. You can place a bowl or baking sheet on the other side to catch your spiralized zucchini!
4. Rub just enough coconut oil on the bottom of a pan to prevent sticking.
5. Heat the pan on medium-high heat until coconut oil is melted.
6. Saute in the pan for a few minutes and sprinkle sea salt & pepper.
7. Continue to saute together until zucchini is the tenderness you prefer.
Zucchini is a great replacement for noodles in spaghetti or you can eat it as a side dish with any meal!
