Review of the Veggetti: Turning Veggies into Spirals of “Pasta”

…Why you Don’t Have to Be Vegan to Love the Veggetti!

Review of Veggetti: Turning Veggies into Spirals of Pasta

Yes, you CAN easily turn vegetables into spaghetti! (Translation: Yes, you can cut carbs and calories and still have delicious, healthy “pasta.”) I wouldn’t have believed it or found out how easy it is if my thoughtful sister-in-law hadn’t presented me with a Veggetti and said, “Here’s a gift—it’s perfect for you!” It actually IS perfect for me and, (I know that I’m going out on a limb here, but, dare I say), it’s perfect for you, too!

As far as kitchen gadgets go, I don’t run out to get the latest and the so-called greatest new widget, especially if it’s expensive. But I have to admit not only do I love Veggetti but I am having lots of fun using it and here’s why:

….or Why You Don’t Have to Be Vegan to Love Veggetti!

  • the Veggetti only costs $14.99 (and that’s for 2 of them if you buy it on the buyveggetti.com, so pay it forward and give one to your sister-in-law!)
  • it’s as low-tech as it gets (it’s all hand-powered, no batteries or electricity needed)
  • it’s so small that it fits easily into a drawer
  • its really easy to use
  • it goes in the dishwasher
  • it makes “spaghetti” from zucchini and squash
  • it makes curly fries and hash brown from potatoes, sweet potatoes and yams
  • it makes salad squiggles from cucumbers and carrots (also zucchini and squash)
  • it is easy to make the strands either thick or thin, whichever your preference
  • veggie spaghetti cuts carbs, calories and gluten and adds nutrients, minerals and fiber

I know there are a few other gadgets and gizmos out there that can do what the Veggetti does but they are large and I don’t want to use precious kitchen real estate for another large behemoth appliance on my counter or in my cabinets. This little guy is small and fits in a drawer! It can also be washed in the dishwasher.

Hard-core pasta lovers may be shaking their heads right now, being understandably skeptical and, well, pasta-loving. But when you stack up about the calories and carbs in typical wheat pasta or even gluten-free pasta and compare that to zucchini or squash “pasta,” this is a great alternative!  For paleo-people, for my GFF’s, (gluten-free friends), and for those trying to lower they’re carb intake and calories, this is a win-win!

You can treat zucchini or squash noddles like pasta and quickly cook it up in a large saute pan and use your favorite pasta sauces and toppings. Curly Cucumber Salad is awesome with a splash of apple cider vinegar and salt and pepper. Carrot Salad is simply delicious. And all these veggies lend themselves to great stir-fry ingredients.

And then, of course, there’s curly fries, hash browns and potato pancakes—not gonna lie, the Veggetti would be wonderful for all three.Review of Veggetti: Turning Veggies into Spirals of Pasta

The only way to find out if you like it is to try it and I recommend that you do! It seems to be available online and also at Bed Bath & Beyond & Amazon & Target, etc.
