What can you make with a spiralizer?
When spiralizing foods first became popular, nearly every recipe was for a form of zucchini noodles. Zoodles are a delicious pasta alternative, but spiralizer recipes have come a long way since then! There are so many fun and creative meals to make with a spiralizer. We've seen spiralizer recipes for:
- pasta salads and garden salads

- breakfast, brunch, and dinner casseroles
- desserts (YES, desserts! Just wait until you see the delicious treats you can make with a spiralizer!)
What kind of veggies can be spiralized?
You can spiralize just about any vegetable that is firm enough to take a spin through a spiralizer Some commonly spiralized veggies include:
- potatoes (russets and sweet potatoes)
- butternut squash
How to cook zoodles (or other veggies with seeds)
A common complaint about making recipes with zucchini noodles is that after cooking, they are watery and soggy. To cook deliciously tender zucchini noodles takes just a few extra minutes of prep. These tips also apply to other vegetables with seeds in them, such as eggplant, butternut squash, and cucumber.
- After spiralizing the veggies, pick out any noodles that are “seedy”.
- Place the noodles into a colander and sprinkle them with salt. Set the colander into a sink or over an empty bowl and let the veggies sit for 10-15 minutes, allowing the salt to help extract excess moisture.
- Don't overcook spiralized veggies! If you will be steaming, boiling, or microwaving the noodles, keep a close eye on them. In most cases, they will cook much faster than pasta noodles.
