I finally purchased a Vegetti just to try out the zoodles (zucchini strands like spaghetti to fettuccine noodles) phenomenon. I got it at Burlington Coat Factory for $10. So yes, it’s not one of those highly advanced, super sophisticated veggie pasta makers, but it did a fine job for my first attempt. Quite an amazing little gadget- holding onto rinsed zucchini and twisting it in the contraption. I did, however, manage to cut my index finger on a blade (those babies are sharp despite being cheap!). I recommend extreme care with these handheld devices. Hopefully no one else is as clumsy as I am.
Alongside piping hot sauteed zoodles, I threw in “sauce” ingredients instead of simmering it in a separate saucepan. Black beans, diced tomatoes, soy ground, and corn are the components of making a zesty accompaniment with a little lime juice squeezed action going right in. This makes dinner time quick and easy. Nothing like the pleasant sound of crackling sizzle and the beautiful eye palette of magical enticement greeting me. Bright vivid red, green, yellow, and black make for a presentable dish packed with so much flavor that one doesn’t even miss the actual pasta. Zucchini has the texture perfect and laps up savory ingredients like a beneficiary soulmate! What’s not to adore?
I am eager to start up some raw recipes! Imagine how walnut cream and walnut meatballs will taste on irresistible zoodles or a rich, tangy sweet peanut sauce! My guess? Raw noodles will be superb!
