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.

I liked this book. Gave me many ideas for meal making beyond the basic zucchini noodles. I am now eager to go give my spiralizer a workout.

I bought a spiralizer awhile ago after trying zucchini noodles and loving them (convinced I wouldn't beforehand). This book has a lot of good ideas that I loved at first. However, a few recipes I have tried require a ridiculous amount of work for very little output. Others are not proportioned appropriately so you should use your better judgement. Still others are for only 1 serving so you have to scale appropriately. Definitely a great book for ideas if you have a spiralizer.

I've been reading the author's blog for quite some time and both my husband and I enjoy making her recipes. The spiralizer is not too expensive and it's fun to use! I highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who wants to eat more vegetables but also loves hearty food.
