Spiral what? And it is good for you!

I am always on the lookout for a quick, easy, and healthy recipe. Thanks to my nephew Ed who lives in New York for posting this one on FaceBook.

It also demonstrates an easy and beautiful way to present vegetables and other foods in recipes.

I think I am behind the times. I had not seen or heard of spiralizing vegetables until he posted the recipe.

Well, at least for now, I am caught up and have put together a video to show you the ease making it.

One thing different from the recipe, I used a ziploc bag - quart size to 'mix' my ingredients. I find this much easier than trying mix some ingredients in a bowl.
