Spiralizing in Season

Inspiralized - Spiralizing in Season, Veggie & Fruit Seasonality Chart

Inspiralized - Spiralizing in Season, Veggie & Fruit Seasonality Chart

I post zucchini noodle recipes all throughout the winter. However, outside of summer, zucchinis tend to be smaller, won’t show up in your CSA deliveries, nor can you find them at your local farm stand past October.

Clearly, that hasn’t stopped me. Luckily, grocery stores tend to keep all types of vegetables year-round and zucchinis are one of them.

However, if you only get your veggies from CSA deliveries or going to that local farm, today I’m going to prepare you for the rest of the 2014 season (and beyond!) with this “Spiralizing in Season” veggie seasonality chart.

This seasonality chart is a rough guideline of the seasonality of these popular spiralizable vegetables (to find out if your vegetable is spiralizable, click here.)

Of course, you can find apples year-round. However, their peak harvest is in the fall and certain apples don’t show up in the grocery stores during certain months, as they’re not at their freshest, prime for the picking and then selling.

However, if you’d like to eat in season, then check out this chart:

You are amazing, Ali. Thank you for being there with all your marvelous ideas. You are an inspiration, Madame Inspiralized
Madame Inspiralized, that's a first! I kinda like it :)
jesusan says:
Yes, these kinds of charts are very helpful. I like being able to get summary information about techniques. I'm sure this, along with your tempting recipes, will help me get to use my spiralizer more.
Thanks for the feedback!

Hi, Ali .... I can't begin to tell you how much I'm finding I am addicted to zucchini noodles. Have you ever tried freezing them? I have a bunch of zucchini coming up in my garden. Last night I made your Basil Pomodoro Zucchini Pasta with Chicken and practically "inhaled" it. Keep up the good work :-)
Chuck - so glad to hear you're liking the recipes! If you go to my How To page you can see information on freezing and preparing spiralized veggies in advance!
Chuck says:
Thanks, Ali .... I ordered a machine through your Amazon link. I am using your pictures on my website and linking back to your site for the recipes (as you required). I am getting LOTS of people interested in this. Hopefully they will order from you. Your pictures are AMAZING .... do you do your own photography? I will def look at your How-To pages. Thanks :-)
Chuck - thanks for the kind comment (again!) - yes, I do my own photography. Thanks!

I just got my Spiral Vegetable Slicer and love your sight. I'm sure this will help with my veggie eating and eating less "white". The charts are indeed helpful!
I'm happy to hear that, Irene! Thanks for the feedback! :)
Sharon says:
Is it possible to be addicted to inspiralizing? I think so. Healthy, delicious recipes. Huge thanks to you Ali. You restore my confidence in the youth of America.
Of course it's possible to be addicted... case in point: me!!

I just ordered 3 more spiralizers and your inspiralized tote bags. I came up with the absolute perfect gift idea, even for those who have everything. My gift basket includes (per gift)- a paderno spiralizer, an inspiralized tote bag, a set of tongs, a gift certificate to a local farm market & hopefully soon your cookbook. (& of course a note with the link to your blog). Of course, you can omit some items for a cheaper version but for $50-$100 (Depending on items included) i have built the best gift basket/bundle ever! What is better than giving someone you love a healthy new way of life! I have 3 people finished for Christmas & birthdays already. Everyone can improve their lifestyle so it even covers that person who has everything & is tough to buy for.. My mother-n-law, case in point. Oh, & i cannot wait to see how it gets fought over at the white elephant parties! Thank you so much Ali! I really see big things in your future! You have tapped into something special here. & i appreciate anyone that helps me get my holiday shopping done early. This year is record early!
That is amazing - I am sure you are a hit amongst friends. What a great idea!
Denise says:
Do you ever Blanche the zucchini noodles? I have only sautéed them in a pan.
No, never! Blanching them makes the noodles soggy and floppy!

cleaned the grill today, which inspired me to grill for dinner, so I kept it simple with grilled potatoes, broccoli and chicken sausage. 🥦🥔 I also made some BBQ tempeh for myself, which was nice and hearty and I am excited to make it more this summer 🌽👏🏼 basically, I steamed it for 10 minutes and then slathered it in barbecue sauce and threw it on the grill for 10-15 minutes. super easy and delish! 🙏🏼

what’s everyone having for dinner tonight?! 👇🏼 #whatsfordinner #vegandinnerideas #vegandinners
...

MEXICAN STREET CORN SALAD 🌽, made with a creamy avocado lime sauce instead of mayo, for a lighter, “less-dairy” version of a street corn salad! so flavorful, addictively tasty, and works well as a vegetarian main dish or can be a side dish served with your favorite protein 👏🏼 grab the recipe on the blog now!! hope everyone had great weekends, see you monday!

it's friyyyyyyaayyyy and that means cheese & cracker plates, right? 🍷 my Pistachio & Cranberry Vegan Cheese Ball 🌱 is perfect for any occasion (yes, friday is an occasion!), a throwback recipe from my Inspiralized & Beyond cookbook! if you have the book, flip to page 88 and make this - definitely no cheese coma and you'll be amazed how cheese-like it tastes (kind of like a spreadable ricotta with tons of herby goodness!) 👏🏼⁣

what's everyone's weekend plans? I'll be in NYC for the second part of the photoshoot for my collaborative cookbook with @feedinglittles! 👯‍♀️⁣
