Sometimes cooking can get tedious. Since I tend to resort to one of three different go-to meals and pork chops, ground beef scramble, and roasted chicken, it can get old pretty quickly. So, I recently purchased a Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer after seeing it on a paleo cooking blog to get creative in the kitchen again.
The slicer comes with three different attachments so you can slice big “noodles” (a la curly fries), small noodles, and thin slices like the picture above. Check out this video for a demonstration of each attachment. Since the weather has occasionally felt like autumn, I decided to try out variation of Marcus’ winter squash dish.
I sliced 5-6 medium squashes/zucchinis and sautéed them in butter over medium low heat until they were “al dente.” I then added cooked mild italian sausage to marinara sauce and poured it over the veggies. Next time around, I’ll probably add garlic and more spices to the veggies, but satisfied my comfort food craving and added variety to the menu. Here was the end result:
I later tried the large noodle slicer on a sweet potato and apple and fried them on high heat in coconut oil. It made for a delicious treat, especially with some cinnamon sprinkled on top. The best thing about this slicer is how easy it is to clean unlike many other cooking gadgets!
