I love my spiralizer. It’s one of my favorite kitchen tools, and it definitely gets used in my kitchen at least once a week. I love pasta just as much as the next girl, but I’m always looking for fun ways to enjoy my veggies and get more in. Enjoying a big bowl of veggies that feels like a big bowl of pasta? Sign me up! Here are some of my favorite spiralized veggie recipes, from hearty main dishes to light and refreshing salads:
This recipe couldn’t get much healthier – it’s veggie on veggie on veggie! From the zoodle base and the asparagus and tomato add-ins to the spinach-packed pesto, you’ve got the most satisfying bowl of veggies ever. The spinach pesto adds tons of savory flavor and creaminess, while the zoodles keep it light. It’s the perfect recipe to use up lots of farmer’s market produce.
Here’s another awesome veggie on veggie on veggie meal! Sweet potatoes make for excellent hearty spiralized noodles. Then these veggie noodles are mixed with mushrooms and onions for more veggie power and swirled in a creamy and rich sauce made of, you guessed it, more veggies! This is a great recipe for when you’re craving comfort food but still want a healthy meal.
This cold zoodle dish is a delicious low carb and veggie-packed take on pasta salad. I love the combination of salty feta, sweet + tart cherries, and nutty pine nuts. This recipe is perfect for taking to a summer BBQ for a lightened up side dish.
This Pad Thai from Half-Baked Harvest mixes regular noodles with beet and sweet potato noodles for a satisfying, colorful, and veggie-filled version of traditional Pad Thai. The best part? This recipe is quick and easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner!
These noodles from Alex at Delish Knowledge are filled with salty, savory goodness from olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes, and feta cheese. The fresh veggies and basil keep everything light and summery, too. Yum!
That’s right, these noodles from Kara Lydon are totally vegetarian, but keep all the smoky, savory, filling goodness of traditional carbonara pasta! The butternut squash noodles lighten up the dish, so you can still feel good about the cheesy sauce, and the mushroom bacon is a genius meaty addition. This is another great one for when you’re craving comfort food but want some veggies, too!
This zucchini pasta from Minimalist Baker is a hearty, vegetarian take on traditional pasta with meat sauce. I love the meaty flavor of the lentil bolognese with the light and fresh zucchini noodles. It’s just about the best veggie stand-in you’ll find for spaghetti and meat sauce. 😉
This light, summery zucchini pasta salad from Nutrition Stripped features a savory hemp seed crumble as a vegan alternative to Parmesan cheese. Anything with fresh figs and avocado is a win in my book!
