How To Make Gluten-Free Low Carb Spaghetti with a Spiral Slicer

gluten-free-pastaI am a carb-aholic – LOVE ’em – and I’m not one you can offer “fake carbs” and I won’t notice.  No WAY! 

But I have to tell you, this low-carb and gluten-free spaghetti recipe is pretty darn good (and that’s a BIG compliment if *I* say that – pass the potatoes…lol!)

I also have a thing for my gluten – tho I probably shouldn’t.

I sure feel better when I cut back on gluten – or eliminate it all-together.

I don’t think I am truly gluten-intolerant, but if you feel better when you DON’T eat something, I would think your body is trying to tell you something, right?

But anyway…

Let’s get back to this gluten-free spaghetti recipe.

It’s yummy…and ya know what? Your kids might even eat it!

How’s that for a cool recipe?

Oh wait – there’s even MORE “coolness” –

What’s really cool is that you use a spiral vegetable slicer to make this spaghetti recipe.

I have GOT to get one and then review it for y’all here at PrimePurchaseReviews.com.

Using a Spiral Slicer to Make Gluten Free Low Carb Spaghetti

If you love spaghetti but have a gluten intolerance or are watching your carb intake, I’m going to show you how to make a healthy low carb gluten free version of spaghetti using a spiral slicer.

The spiral slicer is an inexpensive tool that turns any hard cylindrical shaped vegetable into long thin ribbons that resemble the shape and consistency of real pasta. The spiral slicer can be found online and at some specialty gourmet stores.

To make low carb pasta you will need:

spiral-slicer-gluten-free-spaghettiA spiral slicer or another similar tool called the spirooli 1 medium sized firm zucchini squash Your favorite spaghetti sauce, homemade or store bought A food processor, nutritional yeast, and pine nuts or grated Parmesan cheese

Wash and peel the zucchini squash. 1 medium zucchini squash is enough for one serving if you are making low carb spaghetti for your family use 1 squash per person. Cut the zucchini squash in half and place it on your spiral slicer and attach the lid. Set your slicer to the thin setting and with constant pressure turn the spiral slicer handle until beautiful thin angel hair like pasta strands appear. You have the choice of eating the the squash spaghetti raw or lightly steamed. If you choose to eat it raw, lightly toss it in some olive oil and add a pinch of salt and pepper. If you want to eat it steamed, put the zucchini noodles in a steamer basket and steam until tender. Don’t steam them for too long or they will get soggy.

Now for the sauce, if you want to make a raw tomato sauce you can easily make one in your blender using a few ripe tomatoes, a handful of sun dried tomatoes, Italian herbs, and garlic. Blend all ingredients in a blender and you will have an amazing fresh raw tomato sauce. If you prefer, you can buy a jar of tomato sauce and heat it up on the stove. Pour the sauce over your low carb spaghetti and garnish with some grated Parmesan cheese or you can make a non dairy version of Parmesan cheese by adding 1 cup pine nuts to a food processor with 1/2 cup nutritional yeast. Process with the S blade until the pine nuts have been chopped into tiny pieces mimicking the consistency of Parmesan cheese.

I really hope you enjoyed my recipe for making low carb gluten free spaghetti using the spiral slicer and get to try it at home. It is a healthy alternative to regular wheat spaghetti, not only is it gluten free, but it has less calories than wheat pasta. Also, it is a fun way to get your family to eat more vegetables. Zucchini squash never tasted so good! Not only does it look like real angel hair pasta, but the thin strands from the spiral slicer really transform the taste into something really special!
