The low-carb trend has been sweeping the nation as of late, and many people have hopped on board. Others, however, are hesitant to try this fad for fear that they will have to give up their favorite dishes, like pasta. Thankfully, there’s a way to compromise: vegetable spaghetti noodles, a carb-free pasta copycat that is both healthy and delicious. These noodles are most easily created with a spiralizer – a kitchen tool that effortlessly slices vegetables into spaghetti-like shapes – though standard graters can also create a similar product. Spiralizers are available at numerous retail stores and are found in the same area as other kitchen tools and appliances.
Some of the vegetables you can use to make vegetable spaghetti noodles include:
- Sweet potato
- And more
Once in noodle form, these vegetables have seemingly unlimited uses and can be cooked in a number of ways. For example, you can create a low-carb version of your favorite pasta dish, make a true vegetable lo mien, add the veggie noodles to a soup, or bake the sliced sweet potato in the oven to make your own curly fries.
