I got a spiralizer recently! I have made sliced thin, and creatively cut veggies and fruits by hand and on a grater or mandoline for years, but this is much easier.

The best part about this, to me, is I can use all kinds of neat recipes to make the vegetables I grow into so much more creative meals.
I looked up a list of things to spiralize 19 Creative Foods to Spiralize That Aren't Zucchini and liked their list:

Bell peppers. yellow squash, beets, celeraic, apples, sweet potatoes, cucumbers, butternut squash, cabbage, carrots, parsnips, broccoli stems, jicama, kohlrabi, turnips, potatoes, pears, pineapple, oranges.

BUT! They missed some of my favorites! Onions, bulb fennel, rutabaga,  ANY summer or winter squash or pumpkin (tromboncino is excellent!) large radishes (daikon works REALLY well!) the pretty colored beets (yellow, cylindrica, and OH MY Chioggia beets come out beautiful!) cauliflower cores, Armenian cucumbers come out really cute (they have crinkly edges!)

Onions are my favorite decadent thing to spiralize, our favorite recipe is to spiralize a whole onion, cut it into manageable lengths, add chopped fresh tomatoes and herbs, then bake it for just long enough for the onions to soften (10 mins, at most) and sprinkle with cheese. Is it pasta? Is it a salad? Don't know, don't care, it's amazing!

What recipes do you make from spiralized food?

I love the spiralizer! I used to use it all the time - then we moved. I haven't seen it, in a while, but I know it's here, somewhere. More recently, John got us something similar, though we haven't used it, yet: https://www.amazon.com/Vasta-Vegetable-Fruit-Noodle-Slicer/dp/B0861C93VY/ref=sr_1_11?crid=2NTDI114L2BZO&dchild=1&keywords=veggie+sheeter&qid=1612743877&sprefix=Veggie+sheeter%2Caps%2C247&sr=8-11
I'm looking forward to zuke lasagna, and I'm planning to try my hand at dehydrating some sheeted veggies, too see how well they'd do, in the pantry.
