Fab Frugal Friday: Zero Carb Zucchini "Noodles"

A fabulous discovery: Homemade Zero Carb Zucchini Noodles.

I love to order the “No Carb Noodles” at Pizza Factory, a local family favorite. With zucchini being so prolific and cheap right now, I decided it was time to add these healthy version of noodles to my list of Ways To Get Rid of All That Zucchini. And, health -wise there are very few things better to put into your mouth than zucchinis.

Turns out it is very, very easy. Just slice the zucchini into long planks on a mandoline (or use a large chef’s knife). I like the 1/8 inch thickness, but 1/4 inch is more substantial and yummy, too.  Then, steam them for just a minute or two. Really. They get too soggy if you steam them any longer. And don’t even think about boiling – just turns them into a pile of mush.

You can use them just like you would cooked spaghetti, or my favorite way: while they’re hot, stir in some butter and pressed garlic, salt and pepper.  Instant Zucchini Heaven.

    Oh, yes – what was I thinking?! I can’t believe I forgot to write about the fab spiral slicer Anne gave me as a gift!! Sheeeeesh!

    The spiral slicer is fun because it changes the whole presentation – more fun and festive looking!
