Zucchini Pasta or Zoodles
If you are looking for an alternative to wheat or gluten free pasta, look no more; zucchini pasta are fantabulous!
At home, to avoid wheat or even corn (OGM corn), we have tried different kinds of quinoa and rice noodles.
They tend to get boring very quickly, being too mushy and hard to cook al dente.
Of course, the spaghetti squash is always an option but we felt we need something new.
Zucchini pasta, or zoodles – a short version of zucchini noodles – are a pretty cool choice as they can be eaten raw or slightly heated.
The trick is, you have to keep them crisp.
There is something that we can’t get enough of; we eat them every day. Salads.
You can imagine that salad dressing is something I always in the fridge. There is one salad dressing I make and it only has 4 ingredients.
This quote reinforces why I first got interested in straw bale gardening.
It is from Dr. Patrick Quillin about his fruit garden. “Welcome to my pharmacy!….If you are going to spend time on it, if you’re going to water it, make it something you eat’’.
I heard him say that on the Truth About Cancer series, while he was showing his very own fruit garden, down in sunny California.
Of course, California has a real water challenge. But his words did make quite an impact on me.
How should one eat organic produce and not pay too much for it? Simply by making an organic vegetable garden!
Which we did. Mike and I.
