How To Make Carrot Noodles With A Spiralizer

This week I signed myself up for a Snapchat account (username: kirbiecravings). Then, I spent nearly two hours reading articles on how to actually use Snapchat. All these new social media avenues make me feel really old and out of it and Snapchat is particularly frustrating. That little ghost is just dancing around and taunting me. I haven’t posted any videos yet, but I have made it my goal to do so sometime this week. Let’s just hope I don’t accidentally post anything embarrassing.close-up photo of a forkful of Roasted Garlic Parmesan Carrot Noodles I’m not really good at jumping on trends. Look how long it took me to start spiralizing vegetables. But I’m so glad I finally discovered it so maybe I’ll feel the same about Snapchat.close-up of Roasted Garlic Parmesan Carrot Noodles on a white dish I’ve discussed this before, but I purchased the iperfect kitchen hand-held vegetable spiralizer*.

Here is my latest spiralized vegetable creation. I’m obsessed with rainbow carrots and I really like how they look all mixed together like this. The carrots were easy to spiralize, though they don’t come out in as long of strands as the zucchini and cucumbers. Some come out in long strands and some come out in short curls, but the curls are quite pretty.process photo of raw spiralized carrots on a cutting boardprocess photo collage of spiralized carrots in a bowl tossed with the seasoning and cheese and another photo showing the carrots on spread out on a baking sheet

I wanted to share my favorite way of cooking carrot noodles with you after trying a few different methods.

Then, what to do with a bowl of spiralized carrots? Tossing them with a vinaigrette and making a carrot salad or raw pasta would be a simple solution.

When carrot noodles are boiled, the water is absorbed and they fluff up nicely, taking on a texture that’s almost velvety and soft on the outside but still firm. They take on the consistency of a whole-wheat bucatini.

Carrots are surprisingly hardy; while they are delicious raw, their true potential is realized when boiled and used in a pasta or noodle dish!

Carrot noodles can be easily prepared by simply bringing water to a boil. After the noodles are drained, they can be combined with pasta sauce. Warm carrots will aid in the sauce’s melting into the noodles, giving the dish a very pasta-like texture.
