I have just discovered spiralising! It’s so easy and it’s such a different way of having veg! I was inspired by a cookery book that I picked up in the supermarket called Cook, Nourish, Glow by Amelia Freer. I liked the pictures of the fresh, healthy food! I bought the book and flicked through various recipes and a lot of them seemed to have some kind of spaghetti/noodles as their basis. Yet there was no list of pasta in the ingredients, and she kept talking about ‘spiralising’! I didn’t have a clue! Good old internet filled in the rest! Then I bought a spiraliser on-line after reading some reviews. I bought ‘Spiralo’ from Lurch – a German company. It came through the post really quickly.
Then the cook book and the machine sat there for over a month! But tonight was the night! I washed the implement, set it up and, hey presto, in just a jiffy I had lovely little ‘spaghetti’ spirals of cucumber! I followed the recipe ‘Cucumber noodles with tahini dressing’: a bit of orange juice and zest, some tahini (although I think a good peanut butter would be just as good), some chopped fresh mint and flat-leaf parsley, pinch of salt and some sesame seeds on top. It was all done in about five minutes. Yummy scrummy! I think I’m going to be doing more of this!
