Oh how terribly hard it is to get back in the swing of things after being on a mini vacation for several days :) I had totally intended to post this on Labor Day but then I really didn’t want to pull out my laptop while on vacation so I said I would post it yesterday but when we got home, I was too tired to even think about writing anything. So here we are today! Better late than never, right?

This past weekend, Jason and I set out for the Hudson River Valley! We visited Gina and Brandy and one of the big things that we planned the weekend around was a dinner at Blue Hill. Ever since we watched Dan Barber on Netflix’s Chef’s Table, we knew we had to plan a trip up and conveniently, Gina and Brandy wanted to go again so we made it a triple date! I can’t wait to tell you more about our trip in the Hudson River Valley; from everything we ate and what we did. The whole weekend is definitely worthy of a blog post so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, did you catch my first Bali post?

Remember my last zucchini noodle post that was posted at the end of July? And in that post remember how I was saying that I realllllllly wanted a spiralizer but didn’t think I’d use it enough to justify buying one since it always seemed like I buy these cool kitchen gadgets and then never use them? Well, I caved. I was offered to try the The Inspiralizer by Ali Maffucci of the ever-popular food blog, Inspiralized. Before you say, “well, I already know of this spiralizer” let me tell you right off the bat why I love The Inspiralizer more than the other ones out there. Hands down, the counter clamps. It secures the entire machine to your countertop and offers increased leverage and safety when using The Inspiralizer. Next, four blades which creates four different noodle shapes (ribbon, fettuccine, linguine, spaghetti) as opposed to only three on the other brands. Finally, ease of clean and storage. I literally just run this machine under water, scrub a little with my dish brush, let it air dry, and then put it aside in a cabinet. It takes up virtually no space since the width of it is pretty thin. I would say it’s the same thickness of a Betty Crocker cookbook, if not thinner.

I love stir fry’s and I’m always looking for ways to make them just a bit healthier. Right when I got The Inspiralizer, I knew I had to create a stir fry with the zucchini noodles. I created this zucchini noodle cashew stir fry and the sauce was plate-lickin’ good!! We scarfed this entire dish down. The sauce is slightly sweet with a kick of heat and the cashews throughout give it a nice crunch and texture. Oh! I almost forgot to mention, not only did I spiralize the zucchini, I also did the bell peppers!! I didn’t realize how many vegetables (and fruit!) you could actually spiralize until I read this handy dandy guide.

Anyway, you should definitely 1. make this recipe, 2. buy The Inspiralizer, 3. check out Ali’s blog for more recipe inspiration, and 4. buy her new cookbook!!

I prepared this recipe as written adding some mushrooms and only using one bell pepper. There is no where near enough sauce to coat the veggies as shown in the photo. I made 4 times the amount of sauce that is listed and it was perfect! Great flavor and a great recipe!

Hello! I can't find snow peas at my local Whole Foods or Earth Fare! Can I use sugar snap peas?
