Gadget Girl!

I am a gadget girl; I love kitchen gadgets. It's not strange at all to see my husband buying a blender or a bread machine or even a new sauce pot for me on a special holiday. No, he's not a husband with a death wish... he just knows what I love.
So today's post is all about the new kitchen tool. It's called a Spirooli. It turns vegetables into pasta-like noodles. What is pictured is tonight's FANTASTIC dinner. Organic Cayenne Chicken with Zucchini Pasta Alfredo. The alfredo is one of the new raw recipes I was trying and it turned out BETTER than amazing. Here's the recipe: In a blender, add 1 tablespoon of garlic, 1 tablespoon EVOO, 1/2 cup fresh squeezed organic lemon juice, sea salt and pepper to taste. For a raw recipe, add a 2 teaspoons of Liquid Amino. For a traditional flavor add a tablespoon of dijon mustard. Blend well and set aside. Cut zucchini into 2 inch sections and place on spirooli. Turn handle to create noodles per manufacturer's instructions. Toss with dressing. It's that easy. It takes all of about 3 minutes to make. The chicken on the other hand took about 20 minutes but they were already pre-cut into "fingers" so they were oh-so-easy to dust with garlic powder, cayenne, parsley flakes and sea salt. A very quick and easy meal that is beyond nutritious and gorgeous to boot!
