How To Make Zucchini Noodles With A Peeler

Julienned noodles are thinner and straighter than spiralized noodles, but they taste just the same! I love this option because julienne peelers are tiny, so they’ll fit in any drawer. They’re also cheap! I tested out three types so that I could recommend the best one for you (this one, this one, and this one).
