Healthy Easy Spiralizer Recipes and Ideas

A spiralizer isn’t the most commonly talked about kitchen gadget, but it’s definitely one that has been gaining popularity recently. If you haven’t heard of this interesting invention before a spiralizer is basically a neat, time saving tool that turns vegetables into thin, noodle like strips to use in a bunch of different dishes. There are plenty of easy spiralizer recipes to have a go at too.

If you have ever tried to thinly slice a zucchini using a julienne peeler, or worse – a knife – and given up halfway through because it was taking too long then the spiralizer will be your new culinary sidekick.

How to Microwave Vegetables

The best thing about using a microwave to cook your vegetables is you can be assured of great results every time. If you boil or roast them you might leave them in there too long and end up overdoing them and, let’s face it, what’s worst than soggy overcooked veggies? Learn how to microwave vegetables and you have a new speedy way of cooking them.

A microwave cooks vegetables by producing electromagnetic waves which force polarized water molecules to oscillate.

This makes the temperature increase. Plant foods, namely fruit and veggies, have more water in them than, for example, meat, making them ideal candidates for the microwave because they cook fast.

You can microwave just about any vegetable in a few minutes, depending on the wattage of your microwave and the amount of food you are cooking, along with how big or small it is cut. A one-inch cube of raw vegetable cooks in about 40 seconds on average, in a 1000-watt microwave.
