*Chef’s Tip:
Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer is an all time FAVORITE cooking gadget. It’s the easiest way to make zucchini noodles, sweet potato spirals, carrot ribbons and more! Prior to owning one, I used my mandolin but it’s so much quicker and easier (and safer) with this fun gadget – you NEED one!!
