Spiralizer tips & tricks
Here are some tips and tricks on how to use a spiralizer:
- Use medium to large fruits or vegetables – but not too large!
- Pick symmetrical foods for the best spiralized noodles. If the food your spiralizing is crooked, you can cut it to make it more symmetrical for easy spiralizing.
- Wash and peel your veggies beforehand.
- Cut any noodles after spiralizing so they're not super long and are easier to eat!
- Always position the food you're spiralizing at the center of the spiralizer to avoid half moon noodles.
- After spiralizing zucchini, dry the noodles and sprinkle them with salt to soak up some of the excess moisture.

Yes! If you don't have a spiralizer, you can still make these recipes using pre-spiralized fruits or veggies (which you can typically find by the bagged salads at the grocery store). You could also use a julienne peeler or mandoline to achieve a similar effect.
If you're ingredient prepping your spiralized veggies, dry them off completely after spiralizing and store in a paper-towel lined airtight container in the fridge. The paper towel will soak up any excess water and prevent the veggies from getting soggy until you're ready to use them.
You don't have to cook spiralized veggies – it all depends how you would eat the vegetable if it wasn't spiralized. For example, you wouldn't eat raw potato, but you would eat raw cucumber.
After spiralizing your zoodles, discard any that are seedy then place the ones you're using into a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let them sit for 10-15 minutes to dry out a big, then steam, boil or microwave the noodles. Make sure to keep a close eye on them, as they cook faster than traditional pasta noodles.
