I was inspired by some of my friends to try zucchini noodles, or ‘zoodles’ (s/o to Sarah and Asma!). The easiest way to do it is to get yourself a Veggetti, one of those As Seen on TV contraptions.
I sliced a zucchini using the ‘thin’ side (you can make thin or thick noodles depending on which side you twist from), and then added it to boiling water for a couple minutes. Don’t do this too long because it will end up too mushy. My friends have told me varying things, that you can sautee it to make it more crispy, or just stick it in the microwave to warm it up. Boiling it made it soft, and it was nice for this dish, though next time I might try making it a little more crispy. I cooked some beef I got from 5 oz burger from Honest Chops, a butcher shop in the East Village which specializes in organic and halaal meats (I find a big difference in the quality of meat from this one and other butcher shop meat so I like to stick to them, check them out). I made it more or less using this recipe I posted, only I added garlic salt and coriander to it. Just add a little tomato sauce and you have a healthier alternative to pasta.
Anyone try the Veggetti or making zoodles? Let me know if you have any good recipes I can try :).
