Catchy, isn’t it?
Here, you’ll find everything you need to know about spiralizing and cooking those spiralized vegetables and fruits. As you’ll learn, spiralizing is versatile, fun and life-changing! Inspiralized is what you and your meal will become – a healthier, more inspired version of the original!
Spiralizing is the art of turning vegetables and fruits into noodles. Simple as that, but so revolutionary. Spiralized vegetable pasta or “Inspiralized” pasta is inherently gluten-free, paleo, vegan and vegetarian friendly, low carb friendly, and of course, it’s a cleaner, more wholesome way to eat. Spiralized pasta is not only nutritious and filling, it’s easy to make. Spiralizing is for all ages, diet lifestyles and skill levels. The spiralizer allows you to transform a healthy, low-calorie, low-carb vegetable into a giant bowl of pasta! Top with the right sauce and protein and you’ve got a delicious meal that won’t break the diet bank– in minutes.
Why everyone should spiralize.
No, you can’t spiralize chocolate – or chorizo. Trust me, we’ve tried. There are a few simple rules to determine whether or not a vegetable or fruit can be spiralized or not (if it’s “spiralizable.”)
Run to the farmer’s market.
Below you’ll find a list of the most commonly spiralized vegetables, alphabetically. Click on a vegetable to learn more about how to prepare and cook it. Depending on where you live, there may be other indigenous vegetables and fruits that can also be spiralized.
When your Inspiralizer arrives, you take it out of the box and then what? What can you make? We’ve got you covered – here are some ideas, but the possibilities are endless.
The Inspiralizer comes complete with a thorough instruction manual. It comes fully assembled, all you need to do is decide what you’re going to make first!
Slice the ends of the vegetable or fruit off flatly and evenly. Then, peel it (if applicable.) Slice the vegetable or fruit in half, if it’s larger than 6” long, for best leverage.
It’s imperative that the Inspiralizer is firmly suctioned to your countertop space to properly spiralize. Make sure the area is dry and then press down on the middle of the Inspiralizer and turn the clamps from left to right to secure. The Inspiralizer should not budge.
The blades on The Noodle Twister are clearly labeled A, B, C, D. Simply pull and turn The Noodle Twister (the green knob) to select the noodle shape you want.
First align the center of one end of the vegetable or fruit with the central coring blade (above the blades.) Then, press firmly to secure the teeth of the handle into the opposite en. Make sure the vegetable or fruit is securely attached before spiralizing.
Grasp the side handle for leverage and then grasp the turning handle (with the teeth.) To spiralize, spin clockwise, applying pressure towards the blades. Watch the vegetable or fruit instantly turn into noodles!
