Inspiralized Gift Guide for the Holidays + Cookbook Giveaway!

Inspiralized Gift Guide

I’m jumping on the “gift guide” bandwagon. I like easy. I like simple. I love lists.

With the Inspiralized Gift Guide, you can ask Santa (or the tooth fairy – whatever you believe in) for exactly what you’ll need to become Inspiralized

Or, if you’re feeling generous (’tis the season to be jolly!), buy the items on this gift list to Inspiralize someone this year! 

Item #1: Spiralizer (Paderno)

Pretty obvious. You’ll need a spiralizer to, well, spiralize!

Item #2: Inspiralized: The Ultimate Guide to Spiralized Cooking (the cookbook)

For newbies to spiralizing, this is the comprehensive resource for how to spiralize and how to cook spiralized noodles. It’s packed with how-tos, full step-by-step picture tutorials, 20 recipes, and much more.

Item #3: Vegetable Peeler (OXO)

You’ll be needing a solid peeler for removing the skin off your vegetables for spiralizing. This is most important for butternut squash, which has a very tough and hard-to-remove outer skin. It’s also important for sweet potatoes, carrots and sometimes, zucchinis.

Item #4: Pasta Tongs (KitchenAid)

I use these tongs every time I make a spiralized noodle dish. Tossing the noodles with these tongs cooks them efficiently and evenly. These tongs are sturdy for making large batches of noodles. I can’t go a day without them.

Item #5: Round Scrubbing Brush (OXO)

Once you have a spiralizer, you’ll need to clean it. In order to do so (without slicing your fingers), you’ll need this brush to scrub out the vegetable bits. The vegetable meat gets crammed in the crannies of the blades and this brush gets them out easily. Plus, you can fill it with soap so it does double duty!

Happy Shopping! I just hope y’all make the Nice List this year.
