I just can’t get enough. I need oodles of Zoodles. My mom introduced the spiralized vegetable concept to me a few months ago. If you are trying to lose weight or are gluten-sensitive, spiralizing vegetables are a perfect pasta replacement. Zoodles, spiralized zucchini, place high on my favorites.
But that’s not traditional…
However, my husband and I are adventurous eaters, so I have been trying unusual twists on our classic favorites, like Pad Thai. Restaurant pad Thai is delicious, but packs a calorie wallop of almost 1000 calories a bowl! For most women, that’s most of our daily calorie allotment.
I wanted to create a similar recipe with fewer calories but still maintain that bold, Pad Thai flavor. Deviating from tradition, I made it with zucchini noodles – and shaved several hundred calories. We were pleasantly surprised! This zoodle Pad Thai dish rated so highly, David asked me to add it to our favorites and make it again. Since he’s a huge fan of traditional Pad Thai, his approval came as a massive compliment!
How to make Zoodles with a Spiralizer
Of course, you can make spiralized vegetable noodles using a vegetable peeler as I did in the Zucchini Pasta with Lentil sauce, I recommend investing in a compact device made for this purpose. I used the WonderEsque Tri-blade Spiralizer to make this recipe and cut my time in the kitchen by more than half.
If you have never used a spiralizer, check out my video. I demonstrate how to use a WonderEsque brand spiralizer. It’s similar to other countertop-style spiralizers in use, so you can get the basic idea.
I did receive a discounted product to try for the purpose of this review. Regardless, my friends and family depend on my recommendations for purchase decisions. I never recommend a product I don’t believe in.
We enjoy hosting parties and my husband and I are both avid gamers. You can find me on PS4 as SunshineFlaGirl. We also play tabletop RPGs and eurogames.
