Zoodle Breakfast Nests #TheRecipeRedux |Krollskorner.com

Breakfast Zoodle Nests are a nutritional on the go breakfast & they pair perfectly with fresh fruit and a cup of coffee! 

July 2016 – Theme

Get Your Fruits and Veggies in Shape

With produce galore, now’s a great time to enjoy lots of fruits and vegetables. Show us how you’re serving the bounty of gardens and orchards in shapes like ribbons, noodles, cut-outs, or other creative cuts.

It’s that time of the month again! When I read this theme I immediately thought of zoodles, probably just like many other Reduxers! I wanted to make something different with the zoodles though. I typically make a dinner item with them, so this time I tried breakfast! 

What are zoodles?

Zoodles are made when you take a fresh zucchini and spiralize them into…noodles! Many people like to use these as a pasta replacement. 

Why are my zoodles soggy?

If serving zoodles raw, like in this Zucchini and Corn Salad, you won’t have an issue with soggy zoodles because heating up this vegetable is what causes the moisture to drain out. When you cook and bake with zoodles (like in this recipe), make sure to first pat excess water out of zoodles using paper towels! 

What am I supposed to use to spiralize my zucchini into zoodles?

In stores now you can buy pre-packaged zoodles. However, I think it is more fun to make them into zoodles yourself! There are many spiralizing machines on the market now. You can also use a julienne cutter, or Kitchen Aid sells the attachment now too (I have it and LOVE it!) 

Can I make zoodles for meal prep?

YOU BET! Make your zoodles and store in an air-tight container in the fridge. When you are ready to use them, take out your portions and make Low Carb Eggplant Parmesan with Zoodles or Walnut Pesto with Zoodles!

How can I get my family to eat zoodles?

Slowly start to introduce them to it. If your family is used to eat spaghetti with meat sauce. Try making the spaghetti 1/2 zoodles, and 1/2 regular spaghetti noodles! Also – season them up a bit! Use sauces or pestos to give them flavor!

These Zoodle Breakfast Nests are a perfect on the go meal and have the fiber and protein to sustain you through the morning. They only took me 20 minutes to prep and 15 to cook – super simple! I used a little bit of breadcrumbs for a binding agent. I also think quinoa would also go well in these! Next time you make them try adding in 1/2 cup cooked quinoa for more of a nutritional punch.

All hail to the spiralized queen! Seriously, these look awesome. I have an important question though…would it be ok if I ate these for lunch and dinner too?! 🙂
