If you haven’t already heard of ‘courgetti’, take note, because the Spiralizer is coming to a kitchen near you.
As the quest for optimum health continues, consumers are stocking up on juicers, slow cookers and smoothie makers in their droves.
According to British Vogue’s lifestyle guru Calgary Avansino, health conscious foodies should swap carb laden pastas and spaghettis for a vegetable alternative.
With the help of a Spiralizer, vegetables can be turned into spaghetti, linguine, noodles, capellini and spirals.
This means that traditionally calorific dishes can become free from refined wheat and gluten, while the nutritional value is significantly boosted.
The appliance works best with thick vegetables such as butternut squash, sweet potato, beets, courgettes, carrots, cucumber and celeriac and yellow squash work best.
Prep time is minimal - simply wash and peel the vegetables and then place them through the gadget.
