Ooh there was another thread like this before Xmas - you might find more tips there, but for me it's probably my lurch spiralo for making courgette noodle pasta. Love the stuff.

Yep love my spiralo too.

Ditto my thunderstick (handheld blender - fab for cauli mash), and my blender (for cauli rice)

Yep, as a simple way just top and tail then slice in thin long strips.

But the spiralo is great, it makes fab courgette spiral chains and spaghetti :D

I will definitely get one of those :) My George Foreman has come out of retirement too ;)
I was thinking of a soup maker too but wonder if they are worth the money?

I wondered too - but decided to stick with the saucepan for the moment :)

I got a soup maker for Christmas and love it!

I also use my Nespresso machine, airfryer (mainly for other members of the family) and smoothie to go blender most days.

If you want to see how to do courgettes as a replacement for spaghetti, I have a recipe in moonlights meals in the recipe section. I promise they really are good.

I would love an airfryer - think celeriac chips would be fab in it - might take a look online (not that I have any space at home for one!)

Spiralo is from amazon - but you can cut thin strips and it works just as well.

Courgette is also amazingly yummy scrambled with egg and a little garlic.

And I swear the spiralo makes the courgette juicier! :)

I want, no, need, an airfryer! :D
