Zucchini Noodles
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 1-2 zucchini (or summer squash) per serving
  • A julienne peeler - I recommend this one or this one
  1. Use firm strokes as you peel the zucchini lengthwise with the julienne peeler. Do one side until you reach the seeds. Rotate and peel the other side. Keep peel each side, avoiding the seeds in the middle of the zucchini.
  2. It's not a problem if you get some of the seedy-core when peeling the noodles, but the reason why I don't use the core is because it doesn't hold together well. I use just the firm outer flesh and then I save the cores for adding into soups or veggie saut├ęs.
  3. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the zucchini noodles and boil for only about 30-60 seconds. Taste a noodle before removing the noodles to see if it is cooked enough. It should be firm but not crunchy or mushy.
  4. Drain the noodles and add your favorite sauce and pasta toppings. Enjoy!
  5. You can peel the zucchini and store the noodles in the fridge for a day or so. But the noodles don't store well once they are cooked.
