Finally caved and bought one of those "as seen on tv" doohickeys that shreds your fruits and veggies into spirals. In my defense, it was markdown price and has 3 different blades.

Please fess up if you own one and share pics or name food you have used it on. Garnishes welcome too!

I've been pricing some on Amazon.  Which brand did you get?  Have you used it yet?

 

Look up "Zoodles" (zucchini noodles).  I saved quite a few ideas on Pinterest.

Yeah, I tripped upon "zoodles" a few months back while literally looking up the zoo version of alphaghetti I grew up on. Was amazed that the new zoodles were found first in the searches.

Trying to diversify beyond zucchini, so I'm thinking bell pepper, daikon, cucumber, large carrot, turnip, red onion and pear salad maybe dressed with vinegar, soya, sugar, chili oil, and topped with toasted sesame seeds and fresh cilantro?

Mine is PC brand, so either it will be amazing or the handle will break off the first time I use it.(; Either way, it was brought in at the cost of $25.00 but I knew it wasn't going to sell at such a small store, so kept my eye on it until it went down to $4.95.

I stumbled upon a book by the same name, after following a link comparing the different kinds/tools.

 

Click through "look inside" page by page.  There are oodles of ideas from rice and risotto, to buns, to beet pizza crusts etc.

Thanks heaps for the links. Please keep in touch if you end up buying one, and let me know how it goes. I will do the same.

Okey, dokey. That book looks great.  Ideas I would not have thought of.  I'm thinking carrot pancakes w raisins in place of potato or sweet potato pancakes. I would kill for a big bowl of pasta w butter & parm-reg.  *sigh*
