Spiralized Cabbage and Scallion Fritters

Ahhhh move-in day is over and a success!

If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably sick of seeing shots of Lu lugging boxes, trips to Target, and pictures of our view.

We’re almost done — and so happy to be in a new space with a fresh start!

Today, a round 4-person dining table arrives for our cute breakfast nook that’s off to the left of the kitchen. I can’t wait to have a proper meal, sitting down with Lu! Brunch on the weekend at a table, imagine at that!

We’re in love with the apartment – it’s much more spacious, I have my own walk-in pantry (!!!), room for TWO dining tables, and I no longer have to walk sideways to slither out of my bed – I can just get up and walk around the bed like a normal person. #apartmentliving

It’s also refreshing and liberating to sleep with the windows open, not worried someone can see you in your bed (and if they can see all the way into our Jersey City windows from the west side of Manhattan, that’s impressive – enjoy the show!) We woke up this morning to the sun around 6:30am, it was amazing. There’s nothing like natural light waking you up.

Setting up the kitchen was probably the hardest part.

It’s back to work and for now, night-time unpacking and Target runs (when will they end?!) will have to suffice. We still have a lot to do – wall decor and frames to hang. The next big project: the baby’s nursery!!

Pictures and a recap coming soon, probably on inspiralizedali!

Today, I’m sharing another fun way to make a fritter: with spiralized cabbage! I used red cabbage, so these fritters look a little darker, but you could also use a green cabbage and make them lighter in color.

These cabbage fritters are flavored with ground ginger, garlic, and scallions, giving them a bit of Asian flare, sauteed in coconut oil. They’re flavor-rich, easy to make, and work well as a side dish or even as a breakfast, topped with an avocado! If you’re into the smoked salmon and cream cheese combo, use these fritters for that!

Hi Ali. These look great and I have all the ingredients to make them! I am on WW and was wondering about the portion size. The recipe says it makes 4-6 fritters and I was wondering what the serving size was when used to calculate the WW SmartPoints. Thanks in advance!
Ali Maffucci says:
This has been updated! Serving size is 1 fritter.
Ruth S says:
Hello. This looks delicious. Looking forward to trying it. Question for you though on what looks to be a red sauce. Is there a red sauce or dressing on it and if so what might that be? Thanks very much.
Ali Maffucci says:
It's hot sauce!
Sarah Danner says:
I agree, what is the red sauce?
Lottie A Parker says:
it looks like catsup to me
Ali Maffucci says:
Just a hot sauce!
Ruth S says:
Cool. Thanks! ~Ruth

Hello -- when I put this recipe into MyFitnessPal.com, the calories do not agree with your listing. It has to feed 8 to arrive at your posting.
Gloria says:
Where is information about the blades. I have an older spiralizer and I'm never sure what blade you are using. Are there pictures showing the blades and how they are identified?
Autumn says:
Please put blade "letter" on all recipes. Already lost booklet. Some recipes say the blade and some don't. Is there a link or page for those who purchase the inspirulizer to use to see all?

TWIN MAMAS - anything I'm missing?! 👇🏼👇🏼 #twinpregnancy #hospitalbag #31weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #31weekspregnant #expectingtwins #identicaltwins #identicaltwinpregnancy ⁣


we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

what are YOUR favorite ways to enjoy zoodles?! #zoodles #zucchininoodles #spiralizedzucchini #zucchinirecipes #spiralizerrecipes #spiralizerrecipe #spiralizer

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
