I received a new cookbook recently, just in time for the inevitable bounty of cucumbers, squash, zucchini, and other summer produce!  This new book is all about turning those vegetables into healthy noodles. Nourishing Noodles by Chris Anca of Tales of a Kitchen has more than 150 pages of pasta-less noodle recipes and ideas and includes recipes for non-summer produce as well, such as beets, potatoes, and carrots. There are even recipes for using up those broccoli stalks!
There are seven beautifully photographed chapters for recipe which range from the simple to the elaborate, along with helpful information about what Spiralizing is, what you need to do it, how to get started, etc.

Mmmm . . .  Dessert.  Sweet Potato Brownie anyone?
The book ends with a chapter based on Basics, Condiments, Toppings and more, as well as a complete Index to all of the recipes in the book.
Some recipes do call for stocking the pantry with ingredients you might not already have on hand, such as hemp hearts, miso and za'atar. And many recipes will require a good spiralizer than can handle fruits and other produce that may not easily fit in a smaller sized hand held spiralizer, but even if you can't make some of the noodles, this book is still really helpful.   I am keen to try making some of the basics like nut milk, coconut bacon, vegetable stock powder, preserved lemon and raw "Parmesan."
This book is great for people who want to manage their gluten or refined grain intake, but its also really helpful for anyone wanting to easily incorporate more vegetables into their diet, or even just looking for quick dinner ideas. Spiralizing vegetables is much faster and easier than chopping and grating, and its a lot of fun!
