When I first got into the raw lifestyle I was cautious and didn’t rush out and buy all the equipment that many of the books and websites recommended. Fast forward four years – wow that went quick – and my kitchen now contains many kitchen appliances that seem vital to making this lifestyle work. Blender, juicer, food processor and the biggest expense – my dehydrator. The one thing that was missing and the one thing that didn’t really bother me to be without was a ‘spiralizer’. However, last week I succumbed and ordered one. It arrived the next day which was something of a shock!! the post is never usually that good so I took it as a sign that I had made the right decision in buying it.
I unpacked it and put it to one side and didn’t actually use it until a few days later but once I did I couldn’t believe what a difference it made. I can now make proper ‘spaghetti’ out of courgettes instead of of the thin strips that I used to make using the vegetable peeler. I don’t know why but it made the meal so much nicer having the proper consistency and length. I have to use my fork and wind the spaghetti around just like you would with the real thing!! Yeah ok so maybe I do need to get out more but I am seriously in love with my new piece of ‘raw kitchen kit’.
Here is a piccie of dinner last night – brocolli and mushrooms in hoisini sauce with courgette noodles…… yummy……
So to any raw food newbie or anyone who just wants to add a bit of raw food to their diet I would highly recommend this appliance. It isn’t expensive, its manual so no motors to explode or fuses to blow but above all its simple to use and very effective.
I’m off to spiralize something for tea……..
