Gluten Free Spiralizer Recipes
Gluten Free spiralizer recipes for lunch and dinner! I’ve included spiralizer zucchini recipes, spiralized sweet potato recipes, and more that I know you’ll love! Many of the recipes are Paleo and Whole30 too.
What is a Spiralizer?
A Spiralizer is an easy to use kitchen gadget that cuts vegetables into long ‘noodles’ or ribbons. It’s a really fun way to prepare vegetables and fruit, you can use them in salads, soups and all sorts of recipes as you can see from all the ones I have included in this post.
It’s been a huge boost for those of use who follow a gluten free, Paleo or Whole30 diet as it’s a nice way to replace traditional pasta in many recipes with a vegetable or fruit alternative that’s much more healthy, can be low carb, plus it’s easy to use and the vegetable noodles are very quick to cook.

What’s the best Spiralizer to buy?
There are many spiralizers on the market, but not all are made equal. Here are three brands that I think you should consider.
- I have the Paderno spiralizer, it comes with three blades that can make ribbons and different width noodles. I bought it based on recommendations from other blogger friends who recommended it. I’ve had it for a couple of years and I’ve not been disappointed. It does exactly what I need it to do and it’s held up very well.
- If I was buying one today, then I think I’d go for the Inspiralizer. I’ve heard so many great things about it from friends and I’m told it works particularly well with harder vegetables like butternut squash.
- And lastly, if you have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer then their spiralizer attachment is worth considering. I don’t think it comes with the blade for the fine noodles, you have to purchase that separately. It is double the price of the others, but you’re using the mixer to do the work for you so it makes it much easier for those hard vegetables.
How long do you cook Spiralized Zucchini?
Spiralized zucchini noodles, or zoodles as they are sometimes known, can be eaten without cooking if you are using them in a salad or similar dish. They can cook in hot liquid in just a minute or two, or you can cook them in a covered bowl in a microwave with a minimal amount of liquid for about 30 seconds (or a little longer) depending on your microwave.
If you are including them in soup then they really only need to be added right at the end as the hot liquid will cook them very quickly, what you want to avoid is them turning into a soggy pile of mush.
