I’ve been seeing zucchini noodles all over the place, as well as those super awesome spiralizers on Pinterest. I’ve been dying to try them, so I contacted GEFU to learn more about this spiralizer. They told me it was a great product, but they had a brand-spankin new one that has barely hit the market and they’d love for me to try it out.
Ta-da! Introducing the Spiral Fix. Oh. And they wanted y’all to try it out too by doing a giveaway. Three of them. This thing is so cool! It has four different settings you can set to achieve different spiral cuts. You simply pull that knob out to rotate and it changes the set of blades.
I really wanted to try the zucchini noodles because they are so prevalent, I had to see what all the fuss was about. I think this spiralizer works really well for any wide vegetable: zucchini, bell pepper, potatoes, sweet potato, beets, onions, the possibilities are endless, really!
Slice your veggie’s top and bottom so the ends are rather flat and flush with both the top and bottom of the slicing container. Stick it onto the teeth of the top.
Close the lid, hold onto the handle with one hand, and with the other hand grab the lever on top. Apply pressure to the lever on top as you rotate it around and around, pushing down on the zucchini, twirling it around, and creating noodles! Easy!
I didn’t picture it, but if you want to save your veggie for later (or for more compact storage), the clear, bottom container is detachable and comes with a lid. Best part? Dishwasher safe. My kinda gadget (although I just rinsed mine quickly after I was done and let it dry).
Oodles ‘o noodles.
I really wanted to make these zucchini noodles with meatballs and marinara sauce like I’ve seen so often, but thought I should try something new. But you can make some zoodles and meatballs and send them to me, k? Thaaaaanks.
So I went with a warm, creamy thai coconut curry soup with carb-free noodles. You could also opt out of the zucchini noodles option by thickening this up a bit and serving it over jasmine rice. Sodang good.
This smelled absolutely heavenly! I was trying to imitate one of my favorite dishes ever, the House Special from Thai Ruby in Provo. I dream of that place. That and Bombay House. Can we just talk about Bombay House for a minute here? Let’s just have a moment.
It’s like a Thai ramen, with those comforting forkfulls for twisty noodles, carb-free!
Now remember, these oodles of zucchini noodles can be yours too! GEFU is giving away three of these spiralizers! Even if you don’t win one, they’ve still graciously offered a 20% discount to any order placed on their site. Just use the code: fix13.
