Obsessed with "spiralizing" veggies

I'm always talking about eating stupid amounts of vegetable and this gadget has made it easier than ever; I'm obsessed. It came in the mail yesterday and I immediately put a zucchini and sweet potato in it as a test. It took all of 30 seconds (maybe) to create these masterpieces below. 


The photo of the orange stuff is sweet potato. I just threw those suckers on a baking sheet with cooking spray and spices and baked them at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes...deliciously thin curly sweet potato fries (next time, I'll toss them in coconut oil...yummy!) 

And then we have zucchini "noodles." I just sauteed those guys for about 5 minutes just to soften them up a bit and ate them as is. But next spaghetti night at my house, I'm going to dress them up a bit with sauce and meatballs (and sneak a few "noodles" into the boys' traditional spaghetti-I bet they won't even notice!)

I will have more recipes later...but couldn't keep my original spiralizing adventure to myself-you're welcome :) 

 
The spiralizer I ordered off Amazon.
