Book Review: 150 Best Spiralizer Recipes @SMGurusNetwork #MySillyLittleGang
150 Best Spiralizer Recipes by Marilyn Haugen and Jennifer Williams
I am a HUGE pasta lover. This is not ideal now that I’ve had surgery. Loving pasta is hard now that I must eat healthy. Sprializing veggies gives me the same look and feel of pasta. Which is exactly what I need and why this book has been perfect for me. I have made several recipes from this book, notably the Lemon-Garlic Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles and the Hearty Mushroom Marinara over Sweet Potato Noodles.
Both dishes were fantastic, filling, and absolutely delicious. My hubby and the boys loved both of them. Even my uncle, who’s a guy with a love for pasta even bigger than mine, found these dishes satisfying. I had originally thought that vegetable and fruit noodles would be less filling than grain-based noodles, but boy was I wrong. They are definitely satisfying!
I like the organization of this book. The directions are well-written, there are tips and variations included. And I can’t forget to mention that the recipes are great. There’s all sorts that would suit various dietary needs. So if your diet calls for Gluten Free, Paleo, Vegetarian, Vegan or Raw Foods, you will find recipes in this book! I also appreciate that the book goes into spiralizing basics, and the best veggies and fruits to use. With that information I’m finding it easy to come up with my own recipes, too.
Here’s a tip for you: spiralizers can make very long noodles. So I’ve found it helps to snip them a bit shorter with some scissors as I’m churning them out of the spiralizer. This tip makes them easier to serve.
