How To Use A Spirilizer
So tonight I opened a gift a friend gave me. The Sprilizer. I’ve been meaning to pick one of these up. I was thrilled to get this fangled gadget. After a little finageling I figured it out. So here’s how to use a spirilizer. I stuck a zucchini in it for the first try out. Squiqqily wiggily. Stuck it in, and out pops these great spirals, but also a little surprise. A thick spindle of sorts from the middle of the spiral. And then the end piece a mushroom looking thing. Ok there’s my spindle windle garnish.
Next let’s do a carrot, same thing, spiral gira, and a mushroom looking end piece. Pretty cool and very easy to use. Ok. What am I making out of this?
A little coconut oil heated, add the zucchini and carrot and sauté until soft. Then let’s add in the sun-dried tomatoes. How about some minced garlic and hearts of palm. Make sure you rinse the hearts of palm. It is usually packed in water and high in sodium. Rinsing will help take the salt count down.
Add a little pink Himalayan mineral salt let it go on a low heat for a few minutes. I’m a big fan of this wonderful pink salt. The nutritional value of this natural mineral salt so exceeds table salt. I hope all of you replace table salt with a good mineral sea salt. Himalayan pink salt is a fossil marine salt, rich in many minerals including; magnesium, calcium, potassium, and iron. More on that later.
Lets make this kind of like a fettucine alfredo. We can accomplish this by adding 1/4 cup of vegetable broth, (or a little white wine). Now let’s add a little goat cheese, approx, 1/2 cup crumbled in. Let simmer and reduce heat to low. Add fresh basil, thyme, chives, fresh pepper. Keep warm.
Meanwhile take salmon and coat with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, and a pinch of salt and a grind of pepper. Grill on a George Foreman for 3 minutes, or on a grill pan 3 minutes a side.
Plate the veggies and top with the grilled salmon. Wa la!
