Zucchini Noodles à la Grecque

Zucchini noodles!!!!!!  And the term “à la Grecque” (in the Greek-style) here refers to the black olives and feta that I’ve added to these zucchini noodles.

“Zucchini Noodles? you may be asking.  Yes, zucchini noodles!  They are a wonderful veggie treat brought to you by my new contraption: a vegetable spiral slicer!  You put your zucchini in like this:

And out come noodles like this:

I heated them a little bit in a pan with some olive oil, black olives, and onions, and then added small cubes of salty feta.  Ooooh, a rich noodly treat — and a great way to get in a couple servings of veggies!

I can’t wait to try out more veggie-noodle options — I’m thinking of an Asian-inspired almond butter dressing cold zucchini noodle salad.  Mmmm.  But for now: Greek-style zucchini noodles!

Zucchini Noodles à la Grecque
Serves 2

  • 2 zucchini
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion, minced
  • 12 black olives, sliced
  • 25g (1 oz) light feta, cubed

Slice off the ends of the zucchini, and then turn them into noodles using either a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler.

In a large pan over low heat, sweat the onion until translucent.  Add the zucchini and heat through, cooking for about 3-5 minutes.  Add the olives and stir.

Garnish with the feta, and serve warm.  Yum.

    Oh, i love the look of that courgette cutter. I want! I love the idea of courgette noodles, so healthy, different and tasty. I bet they were good with that simple combo with feta and onion.

    Loving the super spiralizing action!
    Your gadget looks WAY more efficient than mine – I get RSI trying to twist out a bowl of veggie-spaghetti by hand. Need one of those heavy duty machines!
    Another recipe to add to the bank – maybe i’ll try making salty cashew cheese to replicate the fetta? Mmm…

    Yes, it is the best invention ever. EVER!

    I feel like I don’t know how I lived without one. Although my slightly-sliced thumb is wishing to go back to the days of knives… 😉

    I’m definitely eating more veggies with this contraption, I love it!
