How to Make Zoodles
Zoodles are easy to make with a spiralizer. There are countertop spiralizers (like the Inspiralizer) and handheld spiralizers (like this one). I personally use a handheld one for zoodles as I find cleanup to be much faster (i.e., I can just throw it in the dishwasher!). Below is a shot of what making zoodles looks like.
How to Make the Veggies for the Zoodle Bowl
First you’ll want to start by roasting the cauliflower and carrots. Roasting them really does lend another flavor to this dish – you can certainly just saute them with the rest of the veggies, but I’m going to warn you they won’t taste as good. And you risk the other veggies overcooking as the cauliflower and carrots will need longer in the pan to cook than the bell peppers.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, place the cut up carrots and cauliflower on the pan, then drizzle with melted coconut oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix everything up with your hands to make sure it’s all well coated, then pop it in the oven for 25 minutes.
Next you’ll want to slice up the onion and bell peppers and get those in a non-stick pan over medium heat on the stove.
Saute those for 10 minutes, then add in the snow peas and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes.
