12 ways you can turn vegetables into delicious, fat-burning, gluten-free noodles

loading...

Pasta can be heavy, processed, filled with gluten, and devoid of any real nutritional content. The following list of recipes uses gluten-free noodles as an alternative to traditional ones.

Many won’t necessarily have the same texture as spaghetti; some will be crunchier, some won’t be as uniform. But I’ve come to enjoy the different tastes and textures, and have let go of what I thought pasta was supposed to be like.

Many of the recipes below will call for a fancy contraption called a Spiralizer. My fiancée has one, which she often uses to make different types of noodles. But a julienne peeler works great for many vegetables, and if you’re skilled with a knife, you can chop just about anything up into spaghetti-like noodles.

So with that said, enjoy!
