Spiral Veggie Slicer~Makes food fun!

Ok I know everyone probably already has one of these spiral veggie slicers, I’ve been wanting one for years but just didn’t want to spend the $70 when they hit the market, so I made due with a vegetable peeler.  Last weekend I was looking at some sales flyers and saw this on sale for $25, I jumped in my car and I got the last one in the store.  I felt like I won the lottery…LOL  OK I know I’m a nut case, like who gets that excited over an appliance…me that’s who!!  LOL 🙂

Well as you can see from the pictures below I’ve been using it all week.  I have to say that my family is loving the new spiral recipes, it brings new life to veggies and fruit.

My daughter who loves cucumber, thought this was so cool and loved the cucumber ribbons.

For all the salads I made a simple dressing of a splash of orange juice, apple cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil.

Spicy Cauliflower Popcorn

image

These are surprisingly delicious, super crunchy and spicy.  My family loved it.  It’s hard to believe that this is 2 huge heads of cauliflower.

Ingredients:
2 heads of fresh cauliflower

1/4 cup Frank’s Buffalo Wing Hot Sauce
2 tsp canola oil

Preparation:
Wash and slice fresh cauliflower florets into small pieces.
In a large bowl add 2 tsp canola oil, (I used my oil spritzer) and add Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce.  Add as little or as much as you’d like.   Toss until coated.
Arrange on your food dehydrator trays, making sure the cauliflower pieces don’t touch, for good air circulation

Turn on your food dehydrator and set the temperature 160°F
Dehydrated cauliflower will be brittle when fully dried.
Drying time: between 8-12 hours.
