Total Basset Case: Spiralize All the Things {Review}

Spiralize All the Things {Review}

I have previously voiced my love for spiralizing and how much I love my Vegetti (sent to me by my fabulous aunt!).  We have been incorporating a lot of spiralized meals into our menu lately.  

Another thing I have been doing lately is following the blog, Inspiralized.  
Guys, she spiralizes literally EVERY vegetable. 
Did you know you could spiralize parsnips? Plantains? Apples? Beets?
Yeah me neither.  
But you can and you can make delicious recipes with them. 
Ali, the author of Inspiralized, recently came out with a cookbook (of the same name) and ever since seeing it on her Instagram, I have been dying to get my spiralizing hands on it.
 I was recently given the chance to review (and devour) the cookbook and I am giving it two inspiralized hands up.
As I do with most cookbooks, I sat down and read the whole thing in one sitting and marked all the best looking recipes.

Last week we made Lemon Garlic Broccoli with Bacon (and I added chicken) and holy deliciousness.
We loved this meal and it will be gracing the meal plans again, soon.
Did you know you can spiralize and east broccoli stalk?! 
Mind blown.

These were also very, very good.  They did not turn out looking quite like the cookbook but, they were yummy nonetheless. 
Her photo will have to suffice...you don't want to see how ours looked.  
These would be great with any fruit!
I could not get sweet potatoes to spiralize very well with my Vegetti BUT I was able to do them in the food processor.  So no fear, if you don't have a spiralizer in some form, a food processor works!
Though now I am itching to get my hands on Ali's Inspiralzer.  
Then I can really spiralize everything under the sun...


I was given this book by Blogging for Books but all opinions are my own.

I have the Vegetti but have only used it once. I need to get in the habit of trying more things!!!

Loooove her blog too and bought myself the cookbook when I saw it super cheap on Amazon... but am ashamed to say I still haven't spiralized anything besides zucchinis! I'm excited to try some of the sweet potato recipes when I finally get around to trying new stuff. And it would be awesome if spiralizing broccoli got Peter to like it more in the way that it worked with zucchini :)

I did not know that you could spiral use apples, but I will be trying that tonight! I am so glad that you love your Spiralizer - I love mine! 😊
