Sunday in the Kitchen - Basic "Zoodles"

We tried out "zoodles" a while ago after we bought the spiralizer after seeing a lot of recipes for them and they came out really yummy! There's tons of recipes we haven't tried but these are the very basic ones we made the first time around. This recipe made two servings.

Ingredients:
1 medium spaghetti squash
1 medium zucchini
2 TBSP olive oil
Garlic and salt to taste

Get the spiralizer set up. We used the thinnest cutting option because I like the food sliced thin. Wash the vegetables and then cut the ends off the squash and zucchini, load them up on the spiralizer one by one and take them through the machine.

I chopped up the spirals because I didn't want to deal with long strands, then rinsed them and tried to squeeze as much liquid out of them as possible in the strainer. There's a lot of liquid and I'm still trying to find the best way to get rid of it.

Put the olive oil into a frying pan and heat on medium. Add the spirals along with the garlic and salt and fry for about 2-5 minutes depending on how soft you want the veggies. I think they get softer the longer you cook them.

I drained and squeezed more liquid out after they were done and then ate them plain but I think adding some sauce would help.

Those are the basics and I'm looking forward to trying out some actual recipes!
