& I should add some damned good ideas, now that spring is here & lovely veges are here/coming.
Can't let these lovely recipes get forgotten.

Noted in another thread where one has purchased a Spiralizer, also others too. Now have used it a few times with great success and also another person so thought maybe we need to have a dedicated thread where we can share recipes to suit.

The first one is the one I noted too with huge and popular requested recipe.

The next one is posted by doug57 as this person has one too.

Please others would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers and all the best for 2017 for everyone.

Oh, one other thing;
Noted when using certain veges like carrot, beetroot etc then only 2 to 3 minutes cooking in hot boiling salted water as though you are cooking fresh pasta to that al dente bite or to your desired bite.
Anything like courgettes/zuchinni is best kept raw then when adding to other items will cook sufficiently as you finish of cooking that dish.

If using a machine then the threads could be very long, best to cut to suit by using a pair of kitchen scissors, I cut the to say about 30cm long.
Hopes this helps and makes sense.

Lightning fast prawn, tomato and balsamic pasta
( SERVES 4 )

400 g Spaghetti or to similar equivalent amount of Carrot, Beetroot and Courgette all spiralized and cut into desired lengths – see note below
1 Finely sliced red onion
2 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 Garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 punnet Cherry tomatoes, halved
12 Cooked prawns
¾ cup (about a bottle) Paul Newman's Own Light Balsamic Dressing
1 dash Chilli flakes

1. Bring a big pot of salted water to the boil and cook spaghetti according to packet instructions, if using the veges then cook carrot and beetroot 2 – 3 minutes or to al dente bite, leave the courgette in it’s raw state.
2. Cook the onion in a frying pan over medium heat until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
3. Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring every now and then for five minutes.
4. Drain the pasta and at the last minute, add the prawns to the frying pan, tossing so completely warmed through.
5. Tip the pasta or all of the veges into the frying pan, add the Paul Newman's Own Balsamic Dressing and a sprinkling of chilli flakes and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

Note re spiralized veges lengths – these can be very long (especially if using a machine) hence best to hold them up high and simply using kitche scissors cut them to about 30 cm or to your desired lengths. Also best to keep the veges separate aside being until using within the recipe.

salted my zucchini noodles and left while making sauce. then patted dry and dropped into pan with some butter. Quick 'fry' to soften.
Used as base for sauce made with mushrooms, cooked chicken and bacon [cooked in butter with balsamic, pepper, cream, cream cheese, parmesan]
DELICIOUS. none left!

• 2 cloves garlic, crushed
• 1 tablespoon dried oregano
• pinch of chilli flakes
• 2 x 400gm tins crushed Italian tomatoes or 6 large very ripe tomatoes, diced

Tomato sauce: Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, add the garlic, oregano and chilli flakes and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, season and simmer until reduced and thick. Set aside.
Cook the spaghetti or spiralized vegesin plenty of boiling, well salted water until al dente. Drain well and toss with a little olive oil to prevent it sticking together.
To assemble: Combine the spaghetti and ¾ of the tomato sauce in a large bowl.
Using tongs, twirl the spaghetti/veges around the tongs and place 4 separate mounds in a lightly greased baking dish.
Tear the bocconcini into pieces and push a couple into the pasta along with 2-3 basil leaves.
Dip the eggplant slices in the remaining tomato sauce and lay 2 slices over the top of each bundle.
Top with a couple of basil leaves, more bocconcini, a spoonful of the remaining sauce and finally, a good grating of Parmesan.

This one will be done this Evening, looks very nice.

Slow Braised Red Wine Eggplant with Zucchini 'Spaghetti'

1 large eggplant, cubed
2 cloves garlic, peeled and finely diced
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
2 tins tomatoes
large handful fresh basil, roughly chopped
sea salt and cracked pepper
4 x zucchini (1 per person)
1/2 cup raw or roasted macadamia nuts

Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over a medium heat. Add eggplant, fennel seeds and garlic. Sauté for 15 minutes minutes until very tender, adding a splash of water if the pan becomes too dry. Add the red wine and tomatoes and reduce the heat slightly. Simmer for 45 - 60 minutes until the sauce has thickened and darkened. Add a large handful of roughly chopped basil and season with sea salt and cracked black pepper as desired.

Use a spiraliser to create 'noodles' with the zucchini. Alternatively you can use a vegetable peeler to make thin ribbons
that also make an excellent pasta alternative.
Move the peeler around the zucchini until you’ve used all of the vegetable apart from the seedy core.
You can choose to leave the zucchini pasta completely raw or you can
quickly toss the zucchini in a hot sauté pan for 30 seconds with a generous glug of olive oil.

To serve: Place your zucchini 'pasta' in a bowl. Spoon the hot eggplant sauce over the top.
Use a microplane or very fine grater to make thin shavings of the macadamia nuts.
Sprinkle these on top and garnish with extra fresh basil as desired.

Recently we had just the basic plain potato chips done via the oven method.

Had two Chinese International students for dinner and both commented that they have their potato done not as we have our potato chips.

They noted is a lot longer similar to their noodles, thinner than our French styled and done in a wok of very hot oil.

The other day noted to one of those that are still with us that we have now an electric spiralizer hence the dishes that we have had and recalled the potato one noted earlier as above, she replied yes. very similar so now a new challenge LOL.

Spiralized Potato fried like chips, imagining a very quick cooking process.

If anyone likes to try and let us know as I do not have a deep fryer or a wok, maybe could try a big pot or an electric fry-pan 1/4 to 1/3 filled with oil and try it, yeah that would sound right but need to have them at the right length though or could be a mangled mess, LOL.

Cheers and just thinking loudly, again.

Damn typos. arghhhh.

A simple salad over the past few months (with a hand type Spiralizer) was some green and red lettuce leaves, chopped or torn a little, a spiralized courgette, a spiralized apple (all cut to desired lengths) and the other usual added items with various salad dressings has always worked great and lovely.

Simply a lot easier on my aging bite LOL.

Editing that now with an electric spiralizer, it will be a lot quicker and easier to do, will save my hands a bit. LOL again.

valentino, Jan 6, 1:28am
A whole pile of Spiralized recipes available but untried by me yet obviously but perhaps someone may want to and report back, I will do the same as I discover more.

That link.


valentino, Jan 6, 6:56am
Highly recommended.

I left the Courgettes in it's raw state and the end result was wonderful, even my student enjoyed it.

Had salmon with zucchini noodles tonight. i loved it but think i'll need to bury the vege noodles in a bolognase type sauce so they cant see them.

valentino, Jan 14, 8:12pm
Understand what you saying but keep at it.

In the past, I had younger ones turning their faces up at various veges, now they older - they are eating more of it.
They have seen what I have been doing and actually their own younger ones are eating a bit more, especially when they are say "Jazzed" up a little with various dressings as similar to using for pastas and to some degree - it is getting them to eat more veges as such.


meg1971, Jan 14, 9:07pm
I agree. my oldest went thru the yuck veges phase, but now he's off and coking in his own place, he's a huge vege fan. Think the husband will be harder to convince.

valentino, Jan 20, 12:36am
Latest inspired Dish. is very nice and different.
Remember to cut the veges to ideal lengths.

Using the larger Spaghetti/noodle option of a spiralizer, about 200 to 300 grams of Pumpkin or butternut spiralized,

Using the smaller Spaghetti/noodle option of a spiralizer, about 3 good size carrots and at least 2 corgettes.

Now blend the following, 1 avocado, about 1/4 cup slivered almonds, about 1 1/2 cups spinach preferably baby spinach leaves, 1/2 cup fresh Basil leaves, a good size Garlic clove and about 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil.
On the stove is a large pot of boiling water, add the carrot then after a minute add the pumpkin/butternut, cook for another minute then take out 1/4 cup of this water and reserve. Drain the cooked veges into a bowl with the corgettes and mix all then add the Avocado mix and gently mix all so it looks totally Green, add some save vege water to thin it a little to mix more freely. Ready to serve.

You could use other veges to spiralize to your own tastes with this sauce.


Editing typos.

Vegetini with Garlic & Chilli Prawns

Oh, just me with a new word, Hmm, basically spiralised vegetables like spaghetti/noodles, LOL.

Anyway, this is a real hit!

About 500 grams of spiralised noodled vegetables of choice
( please note that veges and fruit like courgettes, cucumber, apples etc are best kept raw until the last bit when mixed with other cooked hot/warm veges )
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 long red chillies seeded and diced
4 garlic cloves crushed
About a kilo of large prawns peeled and deveined ( P&S sells frozen packs of Prawns both in whole with tails or just the meat pieces – more economically priced )
½ cup dry white wine
½ cup vegetable stock
250g punnet cherry tomatoes
200 grams baby spinach leaves
Lemon wedges to serve

Cook the spiralised veges like you do with fresh pastas with the exception as noted, drain, return to pan and set aside.
In a large frying pan, heat the oil on medium, saute chilli and garlic for 2-3 minutes until tender.
Increase heat to high and cook prawns (Defrosted if frozen) for 3-4 minutes until browned.
Add wine, cook for another 2-3 minutes stirring until almost evaporated.
Add stock and cook, stirring for another 2-3 minutes until reduced by half.
Mix in tomatoes and spinach cooking for 4-5 minutes until tomatoes have collapse.
Toss all spiralised veges etc through on low heat for a minute, season then serve with lempn wedges.

Spiralised veges can include Brocolli stems (not the florets but florets in wee pieces can be added at the end of boiling the veges before draining).
Veges and fruit added at the end could be spiralised apple, cucumber, celeriac, courgettes etc.
