Before we get to the recipes here are some tips to help you make zoodles:

Tips for making zoodles:

  • You can julienne your zucchini or even use a potato peeler, but that obviously takes more time than buying a spiralizer. They aren’t too much money (this one is less than $10!) and worth the investment if you like zoodles. And a spiralizer works for more veggies than just zucchini.
  • Try to buy zucchini that is straight for the most part, it makes it easier to turn them into noodles.
  • Cut the tips off of the zucchini so that they can secure on your zoodle maker more easily.
  • If you do have a bent zucchini you can make your zoodles in sections to make the process easier if you have a really long zucchini.
  • If you don’t get it right the first time don’t panic! It took me a couple of tries to feel like I knew what I was doing.
  • After making your zoodles place them on a paper towel on the counter and sprinkle with salt and let them sweat for 20-30 minutes. This helps release a lot of the moisture so you don’t end up with soggy noodles.
  • Zoodles don’t take long to cook. You basically just need to warm them up because if they cook too much they’ll be mushy. So you’re looking at 1-2 minutes!
  • One of the best parts of substituting zoodles for pasta is that you don’t have to cook them separately. You can cook them in the same pan with whatever sauce your making until they’re done.

If you’re looking for a zoodle maker (also known as a spiralizer), these are a few that I really like (click on the photos to check them out):
