Soft veggies like zucchini are easiest. Hard carrots are harder to spiralize, take more muscle! But they all come out so cute it's worth the effort! Has four different blades. Non electric, turns by hand.
You just put the veggie with ends cut off on the gadget like so, and turn the crank!
and this is what you get!
The grand kids loved it. A good way to get them to eat vegetables.
The center stays in tact, but there is no waste. Just cut it up and add it to the mix in the pot.
Then with a dollop of virgin olive oil saute the zucchini for a few minutes. I added a clove of garlic sliced.
Then add the tomato sauce based marinara sauce with green French lentils. (all this in a previous recipe I posted last week) and you have a delicious lunch/dinner! One small zucchini and sauce made one meal for myself. Larger or more zucchini makes meals for more.
And then a raw dessert! My favorite, low cal, absolutely delicious, decadent tasting chocolate treat:
Few ingredients, easy to make, fast, freeze them, eat them.
1 C organic coconut oil
1/2 C raw organic cocoa
1/4 C organic maple syrup
1/2 tsp organic vanilla
sprinkle of sea salt
other spices of your choice
mix by hand in a bowl (mine is my mom's old Mixmaster bowl!)
I put a little more than a table spoon into the bottom of a cupcake paper in the cupcake tin. Gives more than enough of a portion. Eat one a day!
