One of the best things I have ever bought is a vegetable spiralizer. You have probably seen them before on instagram and wondered.
a) which one & how much
b) what can actually cook with it....
Seen here by @LoniJane on instagram
I bought mine 3 years ago and haven't looked back.
Now there are a fair few on the market but I personally recommend the Veggie twister seen here below. You can purchase it from any home wears place (think house) for about $40.
Thumbs up: it's really small and not very cumbersome. It doesn't need to be attached to the bench so you can whip it out all the time. Simply choose your end thin spirals or wide tendrils and twist away.
Thumbs down: you have to have straight medium size vegetables. i.e Carrot and Zucchini.
The next best option is Paderno World Cuisine Tri-Blade Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer, again available at all good home wears stores or amazon.
Thumbs up: can pretty much spiralize any hard fruit or vegetable i.e. potato, apple, beetroot, carrot, zucchini. 3 different size options.
Thumbs down. It's significantly bigger and there are more parts (more parts you to lose).
There are a few other styles on the market but these two are definitely the most accessible and cost effective!
Now my two favourite things to cook with this gadget..
I use it to make zucchini and carrot spaghetti. Toppings such as beef Bolognese, tomato Napolitano with chicken and avocado and pesto's go great!
Thai Beef salad:
Using the thin tendril end I put carrot and cucumber through to add a different texture to my salad.
