How To Make Zucchini Noodles

How To Make Zucchini Noodles

Happy Tuesday! Every Tuesday I share a tip that I’ve found useful in my kitchen or home. Today I’m sharing a tip on how you can turn zucchini into noodles in just a few minutes!

I’ve been making zucchini noodles for years. It’s a great way to use up the plethora of zucchini growing out of the garden this time of the year. You can eat the noodles raw or gently steam them for a softer, pasta like texture.

How To Make Zucchini Noodles

Spiral Slicer



  1. Follow the manufactures instructions that come with the slicer you purchase. I use this spiral slicer which is very easy to use. All you have to do is slice your zucchini into 2-3 inch chunks (make sure to cut the zucchini evenly). Place one piece of zucchini into the slicer and turn the slicer until the zucchini is sliced up.
  2. Serve with homemade alfredo sauce or your favorite pasta sauce.
  3. We also make carrot, beet, cucumber and squash “pasta” and salad with our spiral slicer! You can make a colorful salad with different veggies from your garden.

    This is a nice one, much less bulk than some of the others I have seen and less wasteful, too. Thanks!

    Silly question, do you cook them or eat raw?

    • Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama August 22, 2013, 5:01 pm

      Both. I like it raw but my kids like them cooked. They taste good either way! :)

      Not a silly question…because I was going to ask, too! :-)
