Cook Quickly

Most weeknights, 30-minute dinners are all you have time for. Generally, spiralized vegetable recipes only have to be cooked for a few minutes — or are even served raw — which cuts down on cook time. Toss zoodles with some olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, and other vegetables you have on hand for a basic recipe that you can customize in almost any way.

Eat Seasonally

Once you turn some zucchini and carrots into noodles, you’ll be tempted to do it with almost everything you see at the grocery store or farmers market. And you should.

Get Fired Up
