It’s no secret that I’m a tiny bit obsessed with my food spiralizer kitchen tool. Honestly, veggies are much more fun when they’re in a spiral shape or made into noodles and I’m sure anyone who has ever tried them that way would agree! Sometimes I get in a spiralizer recipe rut, though, and I feel like I’m making the same darn things over and over, so today I’m sharing all my favorite spiralized recipes! I’ve broken them down by vegetable or fruit type, so hopefully that makes it a little bit easier to navigate. I’ve personally tested all of these spiralized veggie recipes and can vouch for their deliciousness. I’m covering spiralized zucchini, spiralized sweet potatoes, spiralized apples and so much more. So whether you’re new to the spiralized veggie noodle craze or an old pro, let’s dive into 25 Spiralizer Recipe Ideas!
25 Spiralizer Recipe Ideas
First things first – this is the spiralizer I use. I like it for a couple reasons, but mostly because it’s insanely affordable, comes with 5 blades, is easy to clean and has lasted me for a few years with absolutely no issues thus far. Prior, I had one that was a hand crank and while it was fine, my arms hurt so badly after using it. So before we get into any recipes, just know that I love mine, they don’t pay or sponsor me to say it and I would buy 20 more if I needed to..it’s THAT good. Now, let’s get to the recipes!
Zucchini Alfredo – You cannot go wrong with this delicious zucchini alfredo from Damn Delicious. I mean seriously – what is bad with alfredo sauce on top?
Chicken Parmesan with Zucchini Noodles – This is a classic substitution I used when I was really early on in my zucchini noodle making adventure and I made it OFTEN, because I was like well, at least if Dane doesn’t like the “zoodles”, then he can eat the chicken. Oh no – he likes the zoodles! That said, I would highly recommend easing any hesitant family members into vegetable noodles this way 🙂
One Pan Zucchini Ribbon Skillet – For awhile, I was completely alluded by the ribbon-ing effect on vegetables. I realized a few years back that they aren’t spending hours upon hours with a peeler in their hands, they’re using a different spiralizing blade! This meal is DIVINE!
Spicy Shrimp With Basil Lime Pesto Noodles – In heaven, I hope they serve this meal. That is all.
Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Zucchini Noodles – Okay I admit, my version of this recipe did NOT, I repeat NOT, look as pretty as Whole and Heavenly Oven’s, but her directions are simple to follow and this meal is a total 10!
Lemon Garlic Butter Shrimp with Zucchini Noodles – Not only does this meal come together quickly, it’s filled with flavor. The key is not overcooking the zucchini noodles so they still have a bit of a crunch!
One Pot Pesto Chicken Alfredo Zucchini – Another one of the meals I used to get Dane on board with vegetables as noodles. It’s safe to say this is still one of his very favorites!
French Onion Zoodle Bake – French Onion Soup is one of our favorite foods, so when I saw this I knew I needed to try it out immediately. OMG – thank you Climbing Grier Mountain for this gem!
Sweet Potato Noodles
Sweet Potato Pad Thai – Would this even be a good blog post if I didn’t include one of my own recipes? But seriously – I make this at least 2 times per month and it’s AMAZING as leftovers, which says a lot considering you can’t usually get me near something leftover!
Sweet Potato Noodles with Creamy Cashew Sauce – Can you go wrong with a Pinch of Yum recipe? I mean, I’ve been making these recipes for years and have yet to encounter a bad one. I will say that this recipe takes a bit of prep work, but it’s SO worth it!
Thai Peanut Sweet Potato Noodles – This recipe from The Fitchen was one of the first sweet potato noodle recipes I ever made and I still make it all these years later. It’s a keeper that’s filled with flavor!
Brussels Sprouts and Sweet Potato Noodle Bowl – I think most people would agree that Inspiralized is the OG vegetable spiralizer and this bowl does NOT disappoint!
Sweet Potato Noodle Salad – This Savory Vegan knocks it out of the park with this crunchy salad that is incredibly filling. Make sure you make extra dressing!
Spiralized Sweet Potato, White Bean + Kale Bake -Another dinner winner from Inspiralized. I was initially kind of hesitant about this one, because I just didn’t know about those ingredients mixing together flavor-wise, but I should know better than to doubt her at this point! So tasty!
Spiralized Sweet Potato Enchilada Bake – Oh man, my mouth is watering big time on this one just typing it up. This is a favorite at our house! I switch up the add-ins based on what I’ve got in my pantry/refrigerator.
Honey Mustard Sweet Potato Salad – Okay, Kevin Is Cooking is GOLD with this one. I was kind of hesitant about it, because eh – warm salad?! But OH MY WORD…get on this ASAP!
Spiralized Apple + Quinoa Salad – The Hanging Spoon does not disappoint with this, but the real star of the show is that fig dressing – OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS. I have just made the dressing and used it on other recipes and it’s outta this world good.
Spiralized Apple Crumble – Where are my people who love apple pie? This is like apple pie’s fancy cousin. I love it + so do people at parties…this makes a ton!
Apple Noodle Breakfast Bowls – To be totally transparent, from a flavor perspective these are the same as a normal breakfast bowl with cinnamon, BUT! There is something that is much more satisfying about eating spiralized apples, so I can’t recommend testing them out enough! I like to spiralize a bunch of apples at the beginning of the week to make putting them together in the morning easier!
Spiralized Apple Fritters – Okay I will be honest, the recipe calls to serve these with yogurt, but I threw caution to the wind, nixed that part and served them with ice cream on top. HOLY SHIT. Make immediately.
Butternut Squash Noodles
Butternut Squash Pasta Carbonara – Okay admittedly, I tried to fool Dane with this one from Cooking Classy and he was immediately like…this isn’t pasta. That said – it was still completely delicious and I’ve made it since, but just maybe don’t try to trick your spouse 😉
Butternut Squash Noodles with Cauliflower Alfredo – I know what you’re thinking…Kait, there are too many substitutions in this meal. But hear me out – it’s DELICIOUS. I hesitate to call it ALFREDO, but dang – it’s got a flavor all it’s own and it’s freaking good.
Cucumber Watermelon Salad – Admittedly when I first saw this, I did not have a favorable opinion on it (like some of the others above), but I have really been forcing myself from a judgy food mindset (thank you, Anthony Bourdain) so I dove in. I’m so glad I did, because even though I DESPISE cutting watermelon, this salad makes it worth it. Plus, it’s REALLY GOOD for taking to parties.
Spicy Thai Cucumber Salad – We eat a fair amount of Thai-inspired recipes at this house, so when I came across this goody from One Little Project, I bookmarked it for later. The flavor of the sauce alone makes this recipe worth your time…trust me!
Spiralized Greek Salad – Okay yes, you can totally make a Greek salad without your spiralizer, but why would you? This makes it so much more fun + if you have any leftover spiralized cucumbers from either of the above, you can make it in pretty much any size. SO YUM!
Okay, now that I’ve share my tried + tested favorite spiralizer recipes, please share yours! If you can’t tell, I’m a little obsessed 😉 And if you loved this post and want to hang on to some of the recipes shared, be sure to pin it for later below!
