Spiralize It

There was never any question about if I would get a sprializer (plantains, pawpaw, etc), it always was a matter of ‘when’ and a morning at Sur La Table convinced me.

We walked in to see a demo of two sorts, with a Plastic Spiral Vegetable Slicer and a ‘Spiralizer’.

My children were soooooooo excited, begging to have a go at the machines, and yes they were gracefully obliged.

Both machines were easy to use for small and big hands, and with a variety of vegetables.


For the Plastic Spiral Vegetable slicer, the vegetable is pinned between an immoveable part and a rotating handle.


Every turn results in vegetable curls extruded.


I was familiar with this so it was no biggie.

Enter the Spiralizer which was the big reveal for me. You use it as you would a pencil sharpener…and that was awesome.


You put the veg in at any end you like – there are two sizes of blades on either end.


You turn the vegetable and voila, vegetable shavings/ zoodles result. Now that my friends is an awesome feat. My children were eating the vegetables practically off the utensil – with pleadings of very sharp blades.


The result was lightly sauteed in a pan with some peanut sauce.


Quick, simple, delicious.


And yes, we left with a spiralizer, just in case you wanted to know.

I’m looking forward to eating very fresh ”noodles’.

Can and will wait. 

What would you make with these?[wpurp-searchable-recipe]Spiralize It – – – [/wpurp-searchable-recipe]


  1. I saw a spiralizer at TJMaxx yesterday. It is a good way to get children to enjoy and hopefully look forward to eating veggies.

  2. All my salads would be spiralized. All my steamed veggies would be spiralized. I could create a new snack with fried yam spirals, or plantain, or potatoes. I’m going to buy one when next I travel.
