There’s something to be said for having the right tools for a job. That’s true whether you’re building a house, fixing a car, or cooking dinner. Sometimes you just need some better tools to do a better job though, and one of the best kitchen tools is a stand mixer. There are so many attachments that make your job easier and allow you to cook like a pro, one of which is a spiralizer.
In case you aren’t familiar with it, a spiralizer allows you to cut fruits and veggies into nifty, twisted sections. It’s one of the most unique attachments you’ll find for a stand mixer and it can help you make some really fun (and tasty) dishes.
One of the most common uses of this spectacular attachment is to make a healthy alternative to starchy pasta by creating “noodles” from vegetables. In our fun list of 40 recipes, you’ll find a wide array of vegetables twisted into noodles. Butternut squash, zucchini, beets and even sweet potatoes can add a healthy spin on various dishes. Don’t forget about fruits, though as apples work incredibly well with this tool, too.
So, without further ado, check out the gallery above and get spiralizing! We guarantee you can find a fun recipe that’s also tasty and healthy. After creating a few of these dishes, you’ll surely be attached (get it?) to your new spiralizer.
