I think there is nothing worse than enjoying a healthy and light dish and then relieving yourself from hunger after 2 hours. The recipe for the carrot spaghetti is easy and very quick.

The carrot spaghetti is easy to digest and there is still a great alternative!

Carrots are easy to digest and if you blanch them briefly as in this recipe here. This makes them even more tolerable for everyone who, like me, has problems with raw food to this day. However, carrots contain sorbitol and if you are concerned with it, it is better to take kohlrabi as an alternative. They also taste great in this dish.

I use almond butter for the sauce. That fits perfectly in terms of taste! But you can also take cashew butter, if you can handle it better. Almonds are well tolerated in the case of histamine intolerance. By the way, almonds are not nuts, they are stone fruits!

Spiral vegetables

Not every vegetable is suitable for spiralizing. When it comes to carrots, the best way to do it is to take the thickest ones you can find. Thin ones can hardly be spiraled, regardless of the equipment. This is simply because you have to get the vegetables firmly on the “skewer”. If it is too thin or too soft, you have no chance and it cannot be spiraled. In general, harder vegetables can be spiralized better. Some vegetables, such as kohlrabi, have to be cut into the appropriate size with some spiral cutters so that they fit into the insert. But this is usually not a problem at all.

In the jungle the spiral cutter or spiralizer

There are endless spiral cutters on the market. If you have a purchase decision, I recommend you to buy an electric one. They are hardly more expensive than those operated by hand but cut your fruit and vegetables much more evenly and better.

As a hand-operated, inexpensive model, I had this spiral cutter * for years. It is a NoName product that served me well until I switched to the Spiralizer as an accessory * (with 5 inserts) for my Kenwood and once again immersed myself in a new world of spiraling. Kenwood * and WMF have two very similar electric spiral cutters as individual devices. Both are very good and have the same scope of delivery. The one from Kenwood is available from me as a KochTrotz Edition together with the mini cooler bag and therefore a lot cheaper than the device from WMF. The Kenwood spiral cutters produce very little scrap, unlike the Lurch and other hand-operated devices.
