Zucchini Noodles A.K.A Zoodles Recipe

Looking for an exciting new meal or just a low carb pasta? Zucchini noodles have both covered in one dish. All we need is a spiralizer for a tasty meal!

How exciting is when we live through history! Well, practically we all do that in every minute of our life as passing our time on Earth but not all things get recorded into humanities shared conscience.

Just reading through recipe histories makes us realize how sloppy we are, recording important moments in our life. Not like it would be crucially important to remember each of the great chefs who contributed to one of our favorite recipes at every bite, but if we have national day for pancakes or shortcakes, why don’t we celebrate their creators too?

Mostly because we don’t even know how things had come into existence. It could have been aliens or time travelers visiting us with a goal to lift the human race onto a higher existential pane.

If so, then it seems that we are not really getting forward in this thing. Sure, there were a couple of embarrassing moments, like when somebody put a living cat into the microwave oven to dry it, but this shouldn’t hinder the spices as a whole.

Yet, it seems that since then we are only given tools less dangerous to play with. Strawberry huller, pizza scissors, motorized ice cream cone, bear paws. Well, bear paws seem to be a bit dangerous but technologically far more behind even a strawberry huller.

One could actually suspect that we are part of an inverse psychological experiment where we are given tools to see if we are mature enough not to play with them.

Probably this is the reason there are no traces where these things come from. No brand attached value, no brilliant marketing campaigns, not even crappy TV shop ads, just a plain subtle sentence “made in China”.

If the Earth is flat, China is too far away from anyone to check, so we just believe in that. Okay, let’s get something straight here. Believing that anyone is importing these things from another time or galaxy would be totally nuts. However, believing that someone infiltrated the human society kitchen supply chain, and flooding the market with useless gadgets in order to test the human race mental ability, is a much more palpable theory.

Unfortunately, this theory only explains but won’t help us discover more about origins of great inventions that just seems to happen to be around us, un-markedly on a daily basis.

We’ve long passed the days to figure out who invented pizza or pesto but strangely we will probably never know that who is responsible for zucchini noodles either, even if we have been living through that revolution.

The only thing we know that suddenly we had zucchini pasta makers all around the world and we can make spaghetti from vegetables that would not only add a fancy look to our salads but could stand as a meal on its own.

There may be some among us already who have no memory of times when there was no vegetable spiralizer around the world. This native generation will elevate the craft to new levels, yet unimaginable for us who have been using these techniques as a substitute for something or a solution for a problem.

For a native generation there was never a problem or something inferior that needed to be substituted. They will use what they know to build something new on top of that to create something new and exciting, something that’s natural for them, yet alien to the rest of us.Zucchini-noodles-Zoodles-Recipe-4-SunCakeMom
