Given that I don't really like to cook and solidly claim that I've already cooked my lifetime quota of meals and am therefore DONE, I'm a total sucker for interesting kitchen gadgets. Like this one.
Know what it is?
Here's a clue.
Here's the actual clue, if you haven't seen one before.
It's a spiral cutter. You can use it on any vegetable over about an inch in diameter. So far I've made cute carrot spirals on my salad, and tonight I did this with a zucchini. Pretty good. I boiled the zucchini spirals for a couple of minutes and added some sauce from a jar. Very like pasta texture but all veggies.
I suppose you could do a fairly green banana or a hunk of melon. How about green melon spirals with blueberries and cherries.
I think the cooked zucchini spirals would dehydrate well for backpacking.
I particularly like that there is no electricity or battery power required, just a twist of the wrist. Fun!
