    But what about the leftover knobs and nibs?

    To fit your veggies into the spiralizer you will cut off some veggie ends and be left with some spare veggie bits. Remember to waste not! Don’t throw out these delicious morsels, keep in a Tupperware for quick snacks, juicing, or for a puree that you can freeze and add into spaghetti sauce or soups down the road. Those veggie stubs are packed with vitamins and nutrients so don’t let any go to waste.

      i love to spiralize zucchini ! Garlic, lemon zest, crushed red pepper added to the sautéed zucchini is awesome ! I top it with a sauce that is made with vodka sauce and supremely spicy hummus! So good and it has a nice kick!
