Last week Rosie of The Londoner (the first blog I ever followed and my inspiration to start blogging!) posted a recipe for Lemon, Tomato and Feta Coodles. If the pictures weren’t enough to sell this recipe to me, the combination of lemon, garlic, tomatoes and feta surely did.
However the recipe calls for a spiralizer and I don’t own one.
There are some cheaper spiralizers on the market, but most decent ones retail from about £20 upwards. Now I LOVE my kitchen gadgets and am always on the lookout for things to make life a little bit easier or faster. However I already have a little gadget at home that makes a very decent dupe for the spiralizer, so I have decided to save my pennies (and cupboard space) this time.
What’s my secret saviour?
All you have to do is run the peeler along your vegetable and voila – long thin strips!
I am happy to report that Rosie’s recipe was as delicious as it sounded, so I’ll be giving some of her other spiralized veg recipes a try now too… with my humble peeler!
So go ahead – pick up a peeler and give coodles a whirl! (Pun intended).
