Why Zucchini Noodles are Great

Eating zucchini noodles is a fantastic way to get more veggies in your diet. Not only are zucchini very high in fiber and potassium, they are also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients. Zucchini are low in fat and sodium. They are just an all-around great vegetable to enjoy.

Growing up, about the only way I ever at zucchini, was in zucchini bread, which was one of my favorite treats that my mother made. Of course it was also full of a lot of sugar, as most traditional baked goods are, but that was my only real source of zucchini back then.

Now a days, I know how tasty, and diverse zucchini can be, and so I am continually looking for more ways to enjoy it.

To Make Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles) you will need:

  • zucchini
  • avocado oil
  • sea salt
  • mixing bowl
  • baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • spiralizing tool (I use this one)
  • tongs or spatula

When making the zoodles, you will want approximately one medium-sized zucchini per person. The zucchini will shrink down a good bit as it cooks.


There are a number of different ways to make zoodles. You can briefly boil them in water and drain them, just like you would pasta.

You can also saute them in a skillet.

Zucchini naturally holds a great deal of water, and can be a bit watery as zoodles, so I personally prefer baking them. It allows much of the moisture to be removed.

I very lightly coat the zucchini noodles with some avocado oil and a pinch of sea salt, and bake them until they are cooked. I do it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

You can serve the zoodles any way you like, but I enjoy them with Easy Turkey Meatballs and some 10 Minute Marinara.
