Switching from regular noodles to healthy zoodles comes with a lot of benefits. Firstly, you cut down on a huge number of calories as regular pasta noodles are around 200 calories while zoodles are just 17 calories per serving, leaving the saved calories for you to add more of your favorite ingredients, and enjoy your zoodle meal to the maximum.
Secondly, Zucchini is a vegetable that is full of vitamins that also provides calcium, magnesium, iron, and fiber to help you feel full, faster, and for longer. So, you eat more for less calories and that is something all of us are looking for aren’t we.
Last but not least, the most important benefit is hydration. Zucchinis are high in water content; they contain around 95% of the water that helps you feel fresh.
You can create some amazing recipes from Zucchinis by adding them to your basic salads and soups to give it a kick of nutrients and taste that too in a variety of ways. Here are some cutleries we have picked to make it easier for you to convert zucchini to noodles or zoodles as we like to call it.
- Spiralizer: It can cost you an arm to invest in one but it is so worth it. It usually comes with 3 different blades so you can choose the type of shape you are in the mood for to
- Handheld spiralizer: This one is almost the same as a spiralizer but you need to put in more hard work as your hands and muscles will be at work.
- Vegetable peeler: This is a one-of-a-kind cutter that creates thin zoodles, and they get the job done as quick as a fox.
Now you can have your zoodles as thin as spaghetti or thick as a tagliatelle.
Tips on how to save your zoodle from being soggy:
- Don’t overcook your zoodles.
- After the spiralizing, the zucchini, dash some salt over it while keeping in a colander to drain the extra liquid to avoid moisture.
- Get rid of the seeds from the zucchini.
- Get fresh organic zucchini.
Storing zoodles can be pretty tricky but we’ve got you covered. Keep your zoodles in the fridge in a plastic container, wrapped in paper towels to absorb all the moisture released which will make your zoodles last longer. Change the paper towel if you plan on storing them for more than a day. Zoodles can last up to 3 days in the fridge.
