HOW TO MAKE ZUCCHINI NOODLES
The easiest way to make zucchini noodles is with a spiralizer and I recommend this spiralizer!
If you don't have a spiralizer then you can thinly shave the zucchini and then cut into long matchstick strips.
I highly recommend owning a spiralizer since they can save you a lot of time.
And you can easily spiralize most any vegetable.
INGREDIENTS FOR THIS RECIPE
- Zucchini Noodles
- Olive oil
- Parmesan Cheese
HOW TO COOK SPIRALIZED ZUCCHINI NOODLES
The key to making the best noodles is to avoid over cooking them.
You only need to cook them approximately 1-2 minutes..
And it's a good idea if you can salt the noodles and let them sit in a colander prior to cooking...
This helps release some water from them.
RECIPE NOTES AND STORAGE TIPS
The raw zucchini noodles for this recipe can be made ahead and stored in covered container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
