Chances are, you’ve put your spiralizer to good use over the last few years. The advent of these nifty tools has proven that they’re a great way to get your fill of fresh veggies. Everydayhealth.com tapped spiralizing expert Ali Maffucci, founder of Inspiralized, to share some lesser known produce that’s easy and delicious to spiralize and are real game-changers like:
Apples and Pears
Certain fruits, like apples and pears, can be easily transformed into noodles, says Maffucci. Apples can be loaded straight into the spiralizer (no need to cut off the ends). For pears, cut off the top (pointy end) before spiralizing (it’s not necessary to chop off the other end). Then, load it straight into the spiralizer with the narrow end facing the blade. Incorporate apple and pear noodles into your favorite salad to add crunch and just the right amount of sweetness. The noodles can also be roasted (at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes) and topped with a pinch of cinnamon and sugar for a delicious dessert.
