So I recently brought myself a spiralizer with the idea that it would help me on my quest to cut down my carb intake.
I've always been a vegetable lover and have been a pescitarian for seven years so I thought this little contraption would be the perfect kitchen friend for me.
Little buyers note: there are lots of sprailizers on the market, some good and some bad. I find it's always best not to go towards the cheaper end of the spectrum when buying equipment that requires regular use. You'll end up spending the same amount in the long run.
There are so many reviews of sprailizers breaking due to the fact that they are way too flimsy to take the crazy amount of pressure it takes to slice down these vegetables.
Have a think about what you want to sprailizer for example wider vegetables like butternut squash aren't going to gel with dinky hand held style, however these are perfect for the likes of courgettes and carrots. (I borrowed my friends to do the butternut squash as I really didn't want to invest in a bigger one... and I truley do not have enough room in my kitchen to host another appliance.
The longest part of this meal is getting the butternut squash through the spiralizer but after that it's a breeze and should only take 15mins tops!
Recipe for two
So what's in it?
