7 Fruits & Veggie You Should be Spiralizing
1. Broccoli Stems
Many people toss away the broccoli stem after picking at the florets. Next time save them and spiralize them! The stems are less flavorful therefore making them a great blank canvas for any sauce or topping you have in mind. Plus, the broccoli stems contain more calcium, iron and vitamin C. Only the florets contain more vitamin A!
Similar in taste and texture to a carrot, parsnips have a hint of sweetness and a lot of crunch like other root veggies celery and turnips. Because parsnips can be cooked a little longer before they soften, they make the perfect addition to soups. Try spiralizing them and using them as the noodles in chicken noodle soup. Parsnip possess many poly-acetylene oxidants giving them anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-cancer properties.
With a texture similar to brocooli stem and cabbage, kohlrabi has a crunchy texture that's bright and fresh. Replace cabbage with kohlrabi in a coleslaw or pickle them in a sweet vinegar mixture for a tasty side dish.
Jicama is a great alternative to celery sticks. Sweet and crunchy, it’s delicious in salads, soups, or a cold noodle dish.
