The best recipe for making and cooking delicious healthy zucchini zoodles using a peeler or a spiralizer!




Making Zoodles with a Peeler:

Make long peels down the length of the zucchini.

Making Zoodles with a Spiralizer:

Follow the spiralizer directions.

Cooking Instructions:

For the best, less-watery results, sprinkle with a little salt, then press your zucchini noodles between paper towels and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Pat with a paper towel one more time before cooking. You can skip the waiting step if you’re in a rush and still have tasty zoodles however they may be more watery.

Saute your zoodles in a pan with a little avocado oil or olive oil over medium heat. Cook for 4-6 minutes or until the zoodles become tender. Sprinkle salt and pepper over your zoodles, stir once more, and serve with your favorite sauce.
