My sister got me a spiralizer for Christmas and I finally opened the box. What took me so long? I guess I'm not one for kitchen gadgets, but this device has kept me busy. I love it! How about you? Have you hopped on the spiralizer bandwagon? There's almost nothing I'm not willing to stick in this contraption to see how it will come out, with great results. Except my finger which mistakenly got stuck in the blade and is still hurting! Spiralized Brussels sprouts anyone? In the off-gardening season, I like to experiment with food. So when I do have a surplus of zucchini and cucumbers, I give myself as many options as possible of using them up in a economical, yet innovative way. You don't want to eat the same thing every night! And you're probably not even going to believe me when I tell you the best way to use this product at the end of this post.
Any recipe that has been around and still used after 50 years is a winner. My grandmother cut this recipe out of a local newspaper many, many years ago and tweaked it to be her own. Now, it's a family tradition to make these for Christmas each year. And they have a very special ingredient.
It's crunch time. Sure, I'm giving plenty of organic vegetables away, but it's time to get serious about eating the last of the crop as well. Besides, I hate wasting food! Especially since food is crazy expensive these days. I love this recipe because it uses up so many of my veggies at the same time like cucumbers, corn, peppers, onions, tomatoes, basil and cilantro. Bursting with flavor, it's also super nutritious.
