Who here likes to cook? If I had the time I would love to spend hours preparing and making every meal that I eat. Unfortunately, time is tough to come by when your busy. Meal planning, prepping and cooking doesn't have to take up a ton of time! Planning your weekly meals can take 15-30 minutes and those meals don't have to be extravagant! My meals take 30 minutes MAX to make. Here is one of my go-to quick and easy dinner recipes that everyone seems to love! Plus it is a great way to get vegetables into your kid's diet (and husband's) without them even knowing.
Zoodles = Zucchini noodles. Zoodles are SO delicious and SO easy to make.
Tools to Use
I use a spiralizer attachment for my KitchenAid but you can purchase a very inexpensive hand held spiralizer from almost anywhere. If you don't want to purchase a spiralizer, a julienne peeler or mandolin works great as well! Before spiralizing, make sure you wash your zucchinis first! Cut off the ends and get to spiralizing.
How to Cook Zoodles
I like to steam my zoodles on the stove but you can eat them raw, boil, sauté, or bake them.
You can eat zoodles any way that you would like. I like to throw some of my favorite organic (no sugar added) pasta sauce, mushrooms and spinach on them. For protein I typically add chicken or meatballs. You can top it with some cheese or nutritional yeast flakes (dairy free) if you'd like. Use your imagination. How do you like your pasta? Prepare it the same way you would your favorite pasta dish.
