How to make zucchini noodles without a spiralizer?
- Thinly slice zucchini (a mandolin is great for this, but not imperative) and stack them.
- Stack several layers together and finely slice the long way creating long thin noodle shaped strips.
- If possible, select zucchini that are very straight with an even diameter from end to end. This will make this whole cutting process easier.
Make basil ribbons by stacking 8-10 leaves, rolling them up and slicing into thin strips.
Shave or grate a little pecorino-romano cheese. If you would like to have shaved cheese, use a vegetable peeler, it works great.
Top the flavorful Zucchini Noodles with a piece of seared fish, chicken or tofu – or serve it just like it is!
