About The Book

The definitive cookbook for using a spiralizer: the kitchen gadget that turns vegetables and fruits into imaginative, low-carb dishes.

On her wildly popular blog, Inspiralized, Ali Maffucci is revolutionizing healthy eating. Whether you’re low-carb, gluten-free, Paleo, or raw, you don’t have to give up the foods you love. Inspiralized shows you how to transform more than 20 vegetables and fruits into delicious meals that look and taste just like your favorite indulgent originals. Zucchini turns into pesto spaghetti; jicama becomes shoestring fries; sweet potatoes lay the foundation for fried rice; plantains transform into “tortillas” for huevos rancheros.

Ali’s recipes for breakfast, snacks, appetizers, sandwiches, soups, salads, casseroles, rices, pastas, and even desserts are easy to follow, hard to mess up, healthful, and completely fresh and flavorful. Best of all, she tells you how to customize them for whatever vegetables you have on hand and whatever your personal goal may be—losing weight, following a healthier lifestyle, or simply making easy meals at home. 

Here, too, are tons of technical tips and tricks; nutritional information for each dish and every vegetable you can possibly spiralize; and advice for spiralizing whether you’re feeding just yourself, your family, or even a crowd. So bring on a hearty appetite and a sense of adventure—you’re ready to make the most of this secret weapon for healthy cooking.

The Friday #56

"Most important, they're made with a Mexican root vegetable that's low in sodium and high in fiber - a heavenly combination for those of us looking to eat fries without going up a size."
Here the author shares a recipe, Spicy Jicama Strings. Basically, use 1 large jicama that is peeled and spiraled with Blade C. Cover them with 2 TBL. olive oil, salt, 1 TBL. onion powder, 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, and 2 teaspoons chili powder.

My Thoughts

I am all for keeping a healthy lifestyle, and making easy delicious meals at home. I own a great tool that is a must to accompany this awesome cookbook. I am very excited to have so many new recipes added to my library. Since I grow a large garden every summer loaded with tons of fresh vegetables, I am impressed with the author's research on transforming more than 20 vegetables and fruits to look and taste like our tried and true favorite meals. I was pleasantly surprised to find sections on breakfasts and desserts, too. I especially like the salad and wrap entries. The shrimp meals are fantastic, too. It's truly rewarding to have a plethora of good eating recipes you can count on at your fingertips, whether you're eating solo or serving a crowd. Get the book. You won't be disappointed!

5/5 stars! Highly recommend to friends.
