Since i am totally grain and psuedo-grain free, I have really missed pasta.

I'm quite excited at the thought of getting my teeth into something that vaguely resembles pasta.

I've done lots of research and have ordered this:

Has anyone else tried it?

Thanks

Oooo, that looks interesting!

I'd love to know how you get on with it :)

Well, it came today, and I'm rather pleased!

So, breakfast was carrot and courgette noodles (using the thicker noodle blade) with an egg and some pesto sauce. I stir-fried the noodles for a minute or so, then cracked an egg in the middle and covered the pan with the lid so the egg cooked in the steam - it was very yummy.

For dinner, we'll have swede (rutabaga) noodles using the thinner noodle blade, fried onions, another veg and the slowcooked beef that I have cooking in the slow cooker.......

The noodles it makes are mostly really long, except for a few shorter ones depending on the shape of the veg.

I.e. much longer than I could acheive on a mandoline. I have a photo, but can't see how to post it....

I can see a lot of veg noodles in my future, lol.

It was a bit pricey for wlhat it is, but at least it seems like the build quality is good. Not sure I'd say it's a 'must-have' like I would about my stick blender or my Ninja blender, but it will make the large amount of veg that I eat daily, a little more interesting.

Thanks-- went back to work today for the first time in a week. Tuckered me out!

Wow, I took my eyes off the board for 2 mins and so much went on!

I hope you like your spiraliser as much as I do - I've had vegetable 'noodles' for every meal but dessert, lol. I like the thin noodle attachment the best. So far I've done: courgette, carrot, swede and now butternut squash (just used the solid top section).

I still think it's great, I get that'stuff your mouth full of noodles' feeling that I miss. Also, however you cook the noodles, it takes a LOT less cooking time than if you cooked the veg 'chopped up'.

I had to turn the swede using my hands, rather than by cranking the handle, but I did put the whole thing on at once! If I had cut off an appropriate sizes portion, then it probably would have worked just by cranking the handle.

Happy noodling! :-)

One happy noodler here :D

 

much improved ZuNoodles over my julienne mandolin!

 

Also made sweet potato and yam curly Q fries -- yum and more fun than my regular version.

 

Was set to try a butternut squash today --- glad to hear it went well for you.

 

HIGHLY suggest any grain-frees out there order or pick up one of these little machines

 

Oh I used the small attatchment for ZuNoodles and the larger one for the sweet potato fries..

 

Thanks again for posting this fun machine :)

Sweet potato curly fries! Great minds think alike, they are next on my list, I might try them with the straight blade though....I haven't even taken the protective sticker off that blade yet, so not sure how thick it will cut.

I did thin parsnip noodles, sprayed with a little oil and fried in a non stick pan, I was going for crunchy, but didn't have enough oil to shallow/deep fry and not enough time to use the oven to bake them, but the result was tasty all the same!

If you have any more successes, I'd love to hear.

Another reason I like this is that I'm also nightshade free, and missing chips (fries) and crisps (chips, lol). The vegetable crisps that I buy are very expensive, and my attempts to make parsnip crisps (thin slices using a peeler and baked in the oven) so far have been a fail....

Exactly -- what I would give for a real potato chip substitute -- we do pretty well with baking sweet potato chips in the oven -- the thinner you get them the better....we have fried some in oil that turned out ok...but for the huge amount of oil in the pan and eventually in my body -- the oven ones get my vote - thus far.

I am going to get a Spirooli (same idea).  I have been very interested in a raw food diet and if I decide to move forward with it or not I know having veggie pasta would be a huge improvement from rice pasta.  I am also going to plant my first garden this summer and will need to get crafty with how I am going to consume my harvest.  I read some of your comments and I am glad to know that you are enjoying yours! :)

Well, I'd certainly serve protein containing foods with it. E.g. Homemade beef/turkey bolognese, a piece of pan-fried salmon, or a piece of chicken.

Or I even like it sprinkled with roasted sunflower and pumpkin seeds - one day.......I would love to try something creamy or cheesey, but I can't do dairy, yet, lol.

Is that what you mean?

    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. Once I get glutened I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
    • I'm confused. You don't have celiac? Have you had a blood test or biopsy? Have you been diagnosed with DH?  What were you diagnosed with 9 years ago? If it was celiac or DH why have you only been gluten-free for 6 months? We need a better picture of what's going on here to help you more successfully.
    • Okay good point. I did not know that about ketosis. Thanks for educating me.
