I’ve been longing for a spiralizer for quite a while – I even wrote about it here – but I finally got inspired to actually purchase one after I received a review copy of The Spiralizer Recipe Book. And, boy, am I glad I did. It is such a fun tool!
I purchased the Paderno 4-Blade Spiralizer because it folds up neatly into its own box for easy storage. I’ve used every blade and am loving it.
This summer I played around with spiralizing carrots, potatoes, onions, sweet potatoes, beets, and my favorite, zucchini. In The Spiralizer Recipe Book, author Carina Wolff gives a nice introduction to spiralizing and the equipment.
I loved her basic Summery Lemon Dill Zucchini Salad and thought the Potato-Crust Pesto Pizza with Avocado was an ingenius way to create a gluten-free pizza crust out of spiralized potatoes.
Zucchini-Wrapped Dates are on my must-try list for this winter!
