DIY Vegetable Pasta without a Julienne Peeler
I’ve always wanted to make the veggie spaghetti/pasta meals, but I didn’t have a vegetable spaghetti contraptions, so I decided to buy one. But I was very disappointed. It was always getting jammed and didn’t make my vegetables look like spaghetti at all instead it was a heap of veggie mince mess! Heartbroken and money wasted I decided to try something myself. I wasn’t going to spend any more money buying a different brand (I purchased the as seen on TV version) So instead I tried to do it by hand. And it worked beautifully!
Here’s how I did it:
Before you can get started You will need:
- a sharp knife
- Your vegetable, long vegetables work better like Carrots or Zucchini.
- A regular sharp kitchen vegetable peeler.
Start by cutting your vegetable in long thin strips all the way through but leave a small space about 2 cm from between the top of the veg and where you start cutting (see the picture).
The best way to describe it is to cut fingers, so your veg doesn’t fall apart. The more fingers, the more spaghetti looking.
Peel vegetable in the same direction you made your cuts. You will end up with wonderful pasta looking vegetable just the right size ready to be cooked or enjoyed raw!
I made a delicious Chicken stir-fry with this zucchini, carrot veg-pasta with bean sprout “pasta”. Fast and Easy without spending money on something that just might not work the way you expected. I hope you find this little DIY as handy as I did! It opened a window for some new recipes. Let me know in the comment what you think of this DIY.
