Garlic Shrimp Zucchini Pasta (AIP)

Garlic Shrimp Zucchini Pasta (AIP)

In case you haven’t gathered from some of my other posts, I live in a tiny apartment. This tiny apartment has a tiny kitchen with a total of about four cabinets and no pantry. This being said, I am very big on saving space, multi use gadgets, and minimalism. I do not own many single use kitchen appliances… except my vegetable spiralizer. This little beauty does one thing and one thing only, slices vegetables into thin noodle-like pieces. That is it, that is its only claim to fame, yet it is probably one of the most commonly used gadgets in my kitchen and I love it.

One thing that I have grown to miss slightly since going paleo and subsequently AIP are those base foods and side dishes that so many people take for granted. Your pasta, your rice, your potatoes, for example. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t miss their lack of nutritional value, or their inflammatory properties or the way they used to make my stomach inflate like a balloon fifteen minutes after I’d eat them. I miss they way they balanced out my meals. I miss the presentation. My vegetable spiralizer brought this small joy back to me.

I can take any healthy starch, squash, or vegetable and make into a nice bed of beautiful, colorful “noodles”. Plus it is so fast and fun!

This recipe for zucchini pasta is actually one of my fastest dinners. There is no need to peel the zucchini I just cut it half run it through the spiralizer sauté it with some olive oil, onion and spices add in my thawed pre cooked shrimp and it is done in about 10 minutes. Very low maintenance. If you are going to buy any kitchen gadget to help add some fun to your paleo kitchen this summer I highly recommend trying a spiralizer. They are inexpensive and so much fun!
