I zoodles! In fact I have them on the menu for tomorrow nights dinner along with grilled prawns and garlic butter. I was just looking at Linda Sue's website and she posted that she uses an OXO julienne peeler to get awesome looking zoodles. I am gonna have to find one of those immediately! I usually just use a plain ol' veggie peeler but mine arent purty like hers.

If you can still get one, a Spirooli is a very fun thing to make zoodles! I've been using mine for about 7 years now and it's as much fun to make them as it is to eat them.

Also fun for making sweet potato "strings" which you can ovenfry or deepfry. Works well on any veggie that you can put on the thing and turn!

Those look yummy. How about just using a potato peeler? I will try it and report back.

I use a potato peeler to make thins slices (ribbons). I just keep turning the zucchini. Then I melt some butter in a none stick skillet and add baby dill and quickly saute the zucchini, add a little fresh cracked pepper. YUMMY

Seeing as how we most likely go to the same Trader Joe's, I guess I won't go there tonight when I get out of work. Be a doll and keep me updated, will ya? Gonna go to Stop and Shop and get regular old ghetto zucchini just so I can try this sooner than later.

These are great with plain old meat sauce and parmesan cheese. It really hits the spot when you miss pasta.

The Worcester TJ's has been out of organic cauliflower lately as well, and I was hoping to make some shrimp and bacon bisque this weekend. Oh well.

Um yeah, gonna need the shrimp/bacon bisque recipe seeing as to how I'm drooling just reading the title. lol (Could you pick up some organic veggies at the grocery store in the interim?

I'm going to Banana Joe's this afternoon for some ribeye ($7.99 a pound and SO delicious) so I'll ask them if their veggies are all organic and report back.

[COLOR=Black]The shrimp and bacon bisque recipe is super easy. It's just Linda Sue's [/COLOR][COLOR=Black]Cauliflower Bisque (I double the recipe). To that I add an entire package of fried uncured bacon (save your bacon fat!) that I also puree with a stick blender so there are just specks of bacon throughout the soup, and then a frozen bag of medium sized shrimp. I cut each shrimp into three pieces and toss those into the soup at the end. Awesome on a cold day.

Mark - that sounds delish!

So I made the zoodles for dinner the other day and served topped with shrimp scampi. The shallots, garlic and butter were sooooo good running through the zoodles, it made it a perfect dish! I cant believe I didnt make them for so long. I guess I forgot how much I loved them.

That WAS easy and delicious. I got the frozen bag of itty-bitty shrimps and chopped those in my mini-blender before throwing them in. (Good call on mini-specks of bacon too btw) I have no stick blender so mine is more like a chunky sort of soup. Definitely still tasty, but I am going to get a stick blender ASAP ~ tried to use a handmixer and burnt myself pretty good so won't be trying that again.

(Also, didn't make it to Banana Joe's to ask about their organic selection ~ since it's going to snow tonite, everyone's acting like it's the end of the world and jamming up all the grocery store/markets/etc.)

I made Zoodles tonight--I actually went out and bought a Julienne Peeler!

I combined the Zoodles with a small handful of mushrooms, chopped ham, chopped baked chix, and topped it with a Garlic Parmesan cheese sauce. Yum!!!!!!

Thanks for the recipe, it's delicious and healthy and is going to be a staple!

[COLOR="Magenta"]I always make zuc noodles with a potato peeler, never occurred to me to use a julienne peeler.. But then I probably never knew what one was... I'm going to be picking one up soon!

We usually have ours like spaghetti with LC meatballs...

I'm kind of excited to try this peeler...[/COLOR]

With the Julienne Peeler, the Zoodles come out VERY thin. They'd be great with an Asian Stir Fry.
