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 optimal health and helps with weight loss, protecting against infections and many cardiovascular diseases.

Tools to Make Zoodles

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 another end. Repeat this process on each side until you reach the core

3. Hand spiralizer

With this one, you will exercise your arm a lot. I used this cheap gadget to make the zucchini noodles in the recipe I am going to share with you today.

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.

Keto Zucchini Noodles Recipe

What I love to do after I have noodles is to sprinkle 1 tablespoon of pink salt and toss to cover well.

Let them sit for at least 10 minutes in a colander. 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 to make less watery zucchini noodles. Try to get as much moisture out as possible.

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

  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.

  2. 5 stars
    This is such a versatile sauce, love it! I used it for Alfredo over zoodles the first night, spread for my sons toast the next morning, dip for keto breadsticks, and still have some left to get creative with tomorrow- super yum, thanks!

  3. I think the carb info might be a little off. I came out with about 3 cups of alfredo sauce. The whole 3 cups should have about 30.4g of carbohydrates total, so 1/4 cup of the sauce should come out to about 2.5g of carbs. And 1 cup of cooked zoodles (i.e., about one medium size zucchini) has 6g of carbohydrates. That’s 8.5g of carbs total. It’s a small difference, but I’m finding that sometimes small differences can matter for keto dieting.

    How the alfredo sauce comes out to 30.4g carbs in total: 10.4g in the 8oz cream cheese, 6g in the 6oz cheddar cheese, and 14g in the 2 cups heavy cream.

    The nutritional info on these things per *serving* often leaves out carbohydrate content because the serving sizes (which are usually quite small) only have 0.5g of carbs or less, which allows them legally to round down in the nutritional info display.

    1. This is one of the first recipes on this blog, so I’ll have to revise the macros. Thank you for this comment. It might be beneficial for other people!!
