Quick Way To Create Zucchini Noodles

Zoodles are the perfect healthy swap for pasta, and there’s no need to buy a special spiralizer to make them. Instead, use a julienne peeler and run the blade lengthwise across the veggie – the unique blade creates thin strands. Bonus: You can use it to julienne lots of other veggies like carrots and beets.
