A series of easy and accessible tools and ways to make zero carb noodles out of zucchini.
Zucchini noodles are all the rage these days. Whether you're going keto, trying to lose weight, vegan or just wanting to incorporate some more veggies into your diet- these noodles are an important staple to implement into your repertoire.
Method #1 - Julienne Peeler
This method is one of the cheapest and easiest ways to make zoodles. You can pick up a julienne peeler on Amazon here. This method is super simple and the best part is that you can use a jilienne peeler on carrots, radishes, laukhi. The down side of these zoodles is that they're a bit thin and wiry.
Method #2- Hand Held Spralizer
The hand held spiralizer makes beautiful textured long rounded noodles. It's a great way to churn out zoodles and the best part is that these spiralizers are fairly inexpensive. The only downside (or maybe upside) is that it's a bit of a wrist workout. You can check these out on Amazon here.
Method #3 - The Spiralizer
This is our preferred method for zoodle making. These hand cranked machines are a bit more expensive but well worth the investment as they last for years and churn out zoodles super quickly and easily. We highly recommend investing in one of these if you're planning to have zoodles on a regular basis. This machine also works great with carrots, beets, turnips, potatoes, cassava, and even cucumbers and has multiple settings for thicker and thinner cuts. You can check it out on Amazon here.
PRO TIP: When purchasing your zucchini, try and get super straight ones (bendy ones don't do so great in these spiralizers!) and then before starting the zoodles cut a very straight edge on the zucchini and place it exactly in the center of the blade. This will ensure a smooth spiralizing process.
We've illustrated all of these methods in a video which you can watch here to get and idea of what the process looks like.
If you're wanting to go all out with zoodles and all the veggie noodles it's not a bad idea to invest in an electric spiralizer that'll zip noodles out in an instant. It's pricy but worth it if you're wanting to invest in zoodles for life. Check out the electric spiralizer on Amazon here.
