Portobello Caps & Zoodles
Before I got my spiralizer I was waiting what seemed like Forever for it. First the company gave me a delivery date then soon after that I was emailed notifying me it was on back order and I had to wait a little longer. “Uuugh, A little longer!” I thought, But why (she cries) why!!!
I may have been a little intense in my desire to create zoodles (aka zucchini noodles) but come on people…can ya blame me? eh? maybe? No, not really. I wanted my spiralizer and fast.
Fast forward to the day my spiralizer was delivered. After reading the above can you even imagine my excitement? It was like a pair of brand new shoes for my kitchen. (You like that analogy? Yea, me too.)
I took out all my vegetables, big or small and started my spiralizing craze. I mean ok, yea, you can eat zucchini other ways I get it. And you can bake a potato but seriously who doesn’t love to swirl spaghetti on their spoon and slurp it up in the most lady like fashion? Yes, me, that’s me. I wanted to eat my zoodles that way, excuuuse me. (ah-hem).
This is one of my favorite things to whip up. It’s fun, easy and super healthy. You know the saying “The Greener you are the Cleaner you are”. Is that a saying? Well, if it wasn’t it is now. (hold the applause, lol) You can actually make this salad in bulk and keep it in the fridge. You’d be surprised at how much zoodles one zucchini can make. But you totes don’t have to worry because it’s a freakin’ veggie. Eat up!
For this Portobello Zoodle Salad you will need a Spiralizer. A very very well endowed purchase.
2 large Portobello mushroom caps
1 zucchini, spiralized
1 cucumber, spiralized
2 carrots, spiralized
handful of spinach or any mixed greens
5 strawberries, sliced
- Water sauté portobello caps. Take about 1/4 c water and put it in a fry pan. Place mushrooms in the pan and flip back and forth until warm. Add any seasonings of choice like Himalayan pink salt and pepper. (YUM)
- Place mixed greens, mushrooms and all spiralized veggies on your plate.
- Top with sliced strawberries. The juice from the berries compliments the salad as a nice dressing adding some kick to it. I love using fruits for juicing my salads up without having to add any crappy dressings. Lemons are a go to for me as well.
Jenn’s Note*** Store bought dressing are loaded with chemical concoctions. If you are going to go for store-bought reach for one that is organic, non gmo and has 5 ingredients or less or ingredients you can spell, by yourself with no dictionary. You get my point.
