    1. Hi there! I have never tried freezing this so I’m not sure how the resulting texture of the noodles would be, but leftovers can definitely be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  1. Wow that machine looks out of this world, like literally it looks rather alien-like, but I so want to own one myself. I’ve always been clueless as to what to do with zucchini other than to saute it with minced garlic and a generous amount of olive oil but this recipe really has inspired me to do much more.
    Thanks for sharing not only this recipe but the many more recipes it can possibly inspire, I can’t wait to try this soon (except, of course, it’ll take me a lot longer to get the zucchini strips without that lovely albeit alien-like machine). Thanks!

  2. I really need to invest in a spiralizer. I have a hand held one, but it’s only good for zucchini. I have been stalking Inspiralized! This soup looks so great with the different colored veggies.

  3. Hi Kelly
    I have just recently M joined your mailing list and am enjoying seeing these great recipes.
    Can you tell me I’d tge Spiraliser is available in New Zealand? Or can it be ordered online?

  4. I made this last night for my family! It was delicious! They all raised an eyebrow when I told them I added zucchini noodles to their soup. My only complaint was I should have made a double batch! This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you!

    1. Hi there! I am not a nutritionist so I am unable to provide nutritional info for my recipes, as I’d have to way to guarantee it’s 110% accurate (which is super important to me!).

  5. Thank you for making this gorgeous recipe! We’re so happy you love the Inspiralizer as much as we do!
