Not my favorite food, but my parents and one of my sisters likes these, so I make them every once in a while.
The Spiralizer is a super neat gizmo my mom bought. It has 3 different cutting settings, and is super easy to use. I love to use it for Zoodles, and cucumbers, and apples, and all sorts of different foods.
Clean the zucchini, and cut of the end of one side only. You can peal the zucchini if you want, but we don't do that.
Turn the Spiralizer until you reach the end of the zucchini.
Place the spiralized zucchini into a colander, rinse, then sprinkle 1 tsp. of salt over the zoodles.
Use your (washed) hands to softly massage the salt into the zucchini. Set aside.
Peel a large onion, cut off both ends.
Place on the Spiralizer like you did the zucchini...
And spin! :)
In a large frying pan, swirl about 1 tbsp. olive oil...
And 1 tbsp. butter.
Place on high heat, then add about 1 tsp. dried peppers.
Lower the heat to medium, add the onions, stir them around, and let cook, stirring every couple of minutes.
While your onions are cooking, take your zucchini out of the colander. Place inn the middle of a clean dish cloth.
Pick up the dish cloth with zucchini in it, and wring all the water out. This will help you zoodles not become soggy when you cook them.
Add the zucchini to the onions, and cook on high for 3-4 minutes.
Enjoy the zoodles with a little lemon juice squeezed, lamb, beef, anything that you want really.
Mix it up:
This is a super simple recipe, more like a guideline then actual fact. Change up the spices, add some new flavours, try different oils, add different veggies or meats to the zoodles while they cook. Have fun, be creative, enjoy! :)
