How to Spiralize Resources

How to Spiralize Resources

I’m always trying to improve this website to provide better content, but most importantly, more helpful content.

While Inspiralized is a place to come and find healthy spiralized recipes, it’s also a huge resource on spiralizing. I shared a bit about this on Snapchat yesterday and received so many comments back saying things like, “I didn’t know you had that!” or “Wow, I wish I had known that the last time I went to spiralize!”

Therefore, I figured I’d go through all of the resources that are available on this website, all in one easy-to-follow blog post, step-by-step!

Step 1: Get a Spiralizer

If you’re ready to start spiralizing and eating creatively, healthfully and deliciously, then it’s time to get a spiralizer. While there are many choices out there, the absolute best is the Inspiralizer, which is the official spiralizer of Inspiralized. It was personally created by ME, based on years of spiralizing experience. I created the best spiralizer and called it the Inspiralizer!

Learn more about the Inspiralizer here, and here’s a quick intro video:

Step 2: Download Your Free Starter Guide

Sign up for our mailing list and immediately receive your free Starter Guide to Spiralizing. This includes everything you’ll need to know about spiralizing (not as comprehensive as this website, but full of great beginner information and links to must-know spiralizing information). Also when you sign up, you receive 10% off the Inspiralizer.


STEP 3: Head to the Get Started Page

On the Get Started page, you’ll find the following:

  • What spiralizing is
  • What you can spiralize
  • What you can make with spiralized vegetables
  • How to spiralize, step-by-step

Literally, everything you need to know is on that page. If you’re on the List of Vegetables You Can Spiralize, you can actually click on the individual images/vegetables, which will bring you to a page that gives you more specific information about that vegetable.

For example, if you click on the “Beet” image, you’ll be brought to this page:

Spend time on this page — it’s meant to give you a crash course in spiralizing!

Step 4: Start Cooking With Recipes

Then there’s the blog (that’s updated Sunday through Thursday) and the Recipes Archives. On this page, you can search all Inspiralized recipes by the following categories:

  • By spiralized vegetable (ie: apple, beet)
  • By category (ie: pastas, salads)
  • By protein (ie: meat & poultry, seafood)
  • By diet (ie: gluten-free, Paleo)

If you want to take it a step further, download the Inspiralized Recipe App (iOS devices only) and have the recipes on you at all time:


Step 5: binge our YouTube Channel

Hi Ali! I love to spiralize a variety of veggies, and enjoy making many of your recipes. I wondered how you dealt with the seeds in the chayote when spiralizing. Do you leave them in, and pluck them out afterwards, like a pear or apple? I clicked on Chayote (under the Get Started page), in case there was a video. There isn't, but noticed this advice: "Roasting zucchini alone causes the noodles to deflate and become less pasta-like." LOL I guess that applies to the chayote, too. :)
Ali Maffucci says:
Whoops! We fixed that! You can just pluck them out afterwards, there aren't that many seeds! Stay tuned for more resources for chayote :)
Serene Tan says:
Hi, I want to get the Inspiralizer but you are not sending it to Hong Kong or Singapore. I am hoping to get one myself and also a few for friends for Christmas. I was wondering if this could be done. Thanks. Serene
Ali Maffucci says:
Serene, unfortunately, we do not ship to Singapore or Hong Kong at this time. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Hillary says:
These are such good resources! I saw your snaps and I was so blown away. You guys really make the effort to make this easy :) Videos are great and make such a difference. Question for Ali and Meaghan - What's your favorite butternut squash spiralized recipe? Also I have a couple small broccoli stems and I haven't had them spiralized.. but I seriously don't have a lot. What could I throw them in or how could I incorporate these into a recipe? Thanks!!
Lynne says:
Spiralized broccoli stems are great in a stir fry with other vegetables. Add a nice crunch.
Ali Maffucci says:
Hillary - glad you find this helpful! Favorite butternut squash spiralized recipe is probably my simple Asparagus and Pea Risotto: As for broccoli, add them into any pasta you're making - whether regular or spiralized. Just make sure you cook them properly first or else they'll be too crunchy!

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
