So yesterday I used it on squash and zucchini to make "noodles"! I've done this before, but I used my grater to grate the zucchini/squash into "noodles" ... it took a long time but that's all I had. The mandoline makes it SO easy! SO fast! Better too, because they are much more noodle-like than when you use a grater.
I kind of think I could just eat a big bowl of zucchini/squash "noodles" every night...
Fresh from the mandoline... yum!
1/4 c onion (I sliced mine thin)
1 tsp minced garlic
olive oil spray
After you shred your zucchini/squash with the mandoline, put it in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Let sit 10-20 minutes to draw out some water. Squeeze out water. I also put mine between some paper towels to remove some additional water. Spray a large skillet with olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add garlic and onion and saute about 2-3 minutes. Add squash/zucchini, along with salt/pepper to taste. Saute about 2 more minutes, remove from heat, and enjoy!
