From The Author
The Inspiralized cookbook includes everything I’ve learned through spiralizing nearly every single day for the past couple of years. It’s truly the definitive resource for cooking with a spiralizer (and it actually says that on the back cover!)
This book is filled with everything you need to know to start spiralizing. It’s filled with tons of technical tips, tricks, and detailed descriptions and nutritional benefits for each spiralizeable vegetable, including how to prep, spiralize and cook them. There are best practices and cooking method charts, along with picture tutorials on how to make spiralized meals.
The recipes in this book include a few blog classics that I’ve strengthened, while the rest are brand-new, original recipes that are meant to inspire you to try different cuisines, meal types and vegetables. Each recipe has nutritional information, to help you maintain your healthy diet.
However, there’s so much more to this book that just the recipes and the how-tos. A small piece of me lives in every page – whether it’s a picture, the introductory story or the anecdotal headnotes to the recipes. There’s no shortage of love in this book.
Most importantly, I could never have done this without the support around me. All of you, my readers, my followers – I am so thankful for your support. You’ve been with me every step of the way, and I love sharing my recipes and stories with you. I consider you all my extended family and friends, and without you, none of this would be happening. I’m very grateful and I know it shows throughout this gorgeous cookbook.
