The popularity of “zoodles,” or zucchini noodles, is no surprise: they are a fresh, low-carb alternative to traditional pasta that fit with many of today’s lifestyles (paleo, gluten-free and vegan to name a few). But did you know you can make your own zoodles, even if you don’t have specialized equipment? You can also make raw noodles from other vegetables like beets and winter squash.
This video demonstrates how to make raw zucchini noodles two ways. The first uses a mandoline to create broad, fettuccine-like noodles. If you have a spiralizer gadget you can make noodles that resemble spaghetti. (Want to get your hands on a spiralizer? Come pick one up at Elm City Market!) And don’t miss the tip at the end about when to salt your noodles.
