10 new ways to use your spiralizer

There's so much more to spiralizing than just courgetti. Believe it or not you can make everything from nachos to a hearty mac 'n' cheese with a variety of vegetables and your spiralizer. Try out our favourite recipes with a twist.

Nachos

Black bean & potato nachos
Seriously addictive spiralized party food - if you're hosting a movie night or meet-up with friends, you can't go wrong with crispy golden potatoes piled high with salsa, beans and cheese. These veggie black bean potato nachos are easy to make and will disappear before your eyes. 

Pickles

Quick cucumber pickles
Add crunch and tang to any dish with simple spiralized cucumber pickles. They're particularly tasty with smoked fish and will be on your plate in just 30 minutes. 

Fries

Sweet potato curly fries

Everyone loves fries, that's a fact. It's even more true of curly fries. These easy sweet potato curly fries are the perfect side to any barbecue, party platter or fully-loaded burger. Scatter with our special seasoning and bake until crispy.

Frittatas

Mini butternut squash frittatas
Mini squash frittatas, topped with crumbly goat's cheese, make a great snack or breakfast on-the-go. Just mix your butternut squash spirals with chilli, onion and egg, and bake up a batch. 

Spring rolls

Spiralized spring rolls
Colourful Vietnamese prawn spring rolls taste just as good as they look. A mix of spiralized carrot and courgette adds a little crunch to the prawn filling. Pair with our chilli dipping sauce for perfectly portioned up party food. 

Sushi 

Nori
These attractive looking seaweed-wrapped veggies are the ideal vegan canapé. Try beetroot & avocado nori with our punchy dipping sauce and a blob of wasabi or the storecupboard equivalent, a spoonful of horseradish. If you're looking for a sharing platter, pile it high with these sushi bites and enjoy. 

Hash 

Spiralized hash
A quick supper of spiralized sweet potato noodles, a squirt of sriracha, dollop of guacamole, topped off with a fried egg, this sweet potato hash can be ready in 30 minutes and makes a great veggie option.

Mac 'n' cheese
