    'Noodling' Vegetables.

    Primal Fuel
    Sorry for yet another thread, but I am getting full swing into primality again and enjoying it alot. I've tried Courgette noodles before, by grating them into noodle strips, letting them dry out on a cloth (they don't really dry at all...even with a hair dryer ). I've took them to the pan and they've just gone into a sloppy mess.

    I know the cookbook says use summer squash, but call me silly, but in the UK I don't think i've ever seen one, hey, i've never looked. I've seen butter-nut-squashes about during this winter.

    What are some good vegetables for 'noodling?'. I enjoy cauliflower rice, and i'd love to get a good noodle subsitute on-board, my signature 'no so primal dish' is a great stir fry which of course uses Sherwoods chicken noodles, carb fest eep!

    Carrots, apples, mushrooms, sweet peppers, any squash.
    By the by, for the zucchini (I'm assuming that's what a courgette is? or is that cucumber?) I saute it in olive oil or butter until it's floppy like noodles and eat it like that.

    Courgette is zucchini. Do you just take a veggie peeler and do that?

    You can't noodle vegetables, they don't bite.

    Errrr.

    Naiad's zucchini noodles are tasty.

    Summer squash is the stuff that generally looks like a zucchini, but yellow.

    I take a mandolin to it, then slice it up into noodle width. Or I take a veggie peeler to it and do the same thing. Works either way.

    Zucchini IS a summer squash. There are several varieties of summer squash just like winter squashes (butter-nut, acorn, etc) But zucchini is one of them!

    That was exactly what I was thinking at first glance...

    2nd. Thanks, Mom! So much easier. They keep well, too, so it makes it easy to always have some "pasta" on hand for a quick dinner.
