You may know that in a ketogenic diet you should keep an eye on the electrolyte intake.

Zucchini provides 295 mg potassium and only 3 grams carbohydrates per cup.

It is well known that zucchini is great for maintaining an optimal health and helps with weight loss, protecting against infections and many cardiovascular diseases.

How to make zucchini noodles – three ways

1.Use a spiralizer

A spiralizer is a tool used by many people in the keto community because it’s fairly easy to use and clean. You get different blades, so you can make different shapes of zucchini noodles without much effort. Just cut the zucchini ends, place it on the spiralizer and turn the handle to make zucchini noodles.

Using this tool make the perfect zucchini noodles, so it’s worth investing in a high-quality spiralizer.

2. Julienne peeler

Looks like a potato peeler but has small teeth on the blades that will help to cut the vegetables into thin strips. It is a more affordable tool and you might already have it in your kitchen.
Place the peeler at the end and move it towards to another end. Repeat this process on each side until you reach the core

3. Hand spiralizer

To be honest, it was the first time using it. I’ve seen so many people being amazed by it so I had to give it a try. It does it job, meaning it turns zucchini into noodles but you need to put more effort than with the other tools. I am pretty satisfied with the results.

How to make perfect zucchini noodles?

What I love to do after I have the noodles is to sprinkle 1 tablespoon of pink salt and toss to cover well. Let them sit for at least 10 minutes. The salt will draw out some of the moisture and will make the vegetable pasta less soggy. Then I place them in a salad spinner to get rid of as much liquid as possible. This is such a genius tip.

The next important step is to sauté the keto noodles in 1 tablespoon olive oil or butter for just a few minutes.

  1. I made this tonight and OH MY GOD it was delicious. I thought the zoodles would be soggy, but they were perfectly al dente and the sauce was super delicious with the raw garlic in it.
