I might not be ‘on trend’ with a lot of things, but I’m not so far behind the times that I’m not aware vegetable noodles are ‘a thing’. However, I happened to get my hands on a shiny new White Magic Masha and Spiraliser recently and I went nuts making vegetable noodles.
I’ve had a spiraliser collecting dust in my kitchen drawer since about 2013. Either it was a dud or I just didn’t know what I was doing, but it never made the ‘perfect noodles’ its packaging proclaimed it would. I happen to like appliances that will make my life in the kitchen more efficient, and given that I didn’t need another university degree to operate the White Magic Spiraliser, making vegetable noodles could not have been easier. (If you’d like to know more about my thoughts on the spiraliser appliance, leave me a comment below.)
With so many noodles there were a few recipes coming to mind, but none simpler than this flavourful, hearty, protein- and fibre-rich lentil bolognese with zucchini ‘pasta’ noodles! You’ll have a delicious dinner on the table in roughly 30 minutes. It goes without saying that because this dish is meat-free, it’s great for vegetarians, vegans, and those looking for gluten-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar-free meals.
