    I have always enjoyed pasta, but I don’t enjoy all of the carbs that a typical plate of pasta contains! Since I’ve been trying to lose weight, I have adopted a diet that emphasizes more protein and vegetables and smaller amounts of carbs. But somewhere in my mind, I still enjoy eating noodles. That’s why I was eager to try the 5 Blade Vegetable Spiralizer from with suction cup from Sharp Veggies & Herbs. If you aren’t familiar with spiralizers, they create noodles from vegetables such as zucchini, carrots and cucumbers. If you’re looking for low carb dishes that make you feel like you are eating pasta, then you’ll want to try Sauteed Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles and Avocado Cream.

    The 5 Blade Vegetable Spiralizer with suction cup from Sharp Veggies & Herbs is easy to use. First you attach the spiralizer to your counter with the suction cup so that it doesn’t slip or slide while you are slicing your vegetables. Then you choose the blade you want to use and place it in the machine. I used the Angel Hair blade to create the zucchini noodles for this recipe. After securing the zucchini in place, you just turn the handle to create your zucchini noodles. You can purchase the 5 Blade Vegetable Spiralizer with suction cup from Sharp Veggies & Herbs on Amazon.

    Recipe Suggestions

    I have recently switched to Avocado Oil and use it in this recipe, but you can use Extra Virgin Olive Oil in this recipe if you prefer. I enjoy using Avocado Oil not only for its nutritional benefits, but because it has a higher smoke point than Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Avocado Oil will not burn or smoke until it reaches 570°F while Extra Virgin Olive Oil’s smoke point is 375°F.

    I have used a 2% plain Greek yogourt in this recipe so that the avocado cream obtains a creamy consistency. Since Greek yogourt is much thicker than regular yogourt, I would recommend using Greek yogourt if possible. Plus, the added benefit is 2% Greek yogourt contains just over 11 grams of protein per 1/2 a cup while regular 2% yogourt contains only 5 grams of protein per 1/2 a cup.

    Combine zucchini noodles with avocado cream just before serving to prevent cream from becoming more liquid.

    Another point to mention is zucchini is 95 percent water. So it’s best to add the spiralized zucchini noodles or “zoodles” as they are often called to the avocado cream mixture as the very last step. This will help prevent the avocado cream from absorbing the water from the zucchini and becoming more liquid that it already is.

    1. I’ve seen the spiralizer before and thought about buying one. It would be great for parents with small children, I think you could more easily coax them to eat veggies if they were made into noodles. And this recipe sounds great. I’ve never used avocado oil before. I have olive oil at home; I’d probably use that.

    2. I love all these wonderful ingredients and I am excited to try this.It sounds delicious and healthy. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.
