Smart Prep & Shortcuts

  • Look for pre-grilled chicken strips in the deli section or the frozen aisle of your local grocery store.
  • No spiralizer? Purchase pre-spiralized zucchini noodles in the refrigerated produce section of your local grocery store.
  • Pick up a medley of green and black olives in the salad bar or deli section of your local grocery store.
How to Make Zoodle Salad
  • In a GoodCook Touch Mixing Bowl, toss together zucchini noodles, tomatoes, basil, mozzarella or feta, olive oil, vinegar, lemon, salt and pepper.
  • Spoon into 2-cup section of the meal prep container.
How to Make the Quinoa Salad
  • In a GoodCook Touch Mixing Bowl, toss together olives, raisins, parsley, onions and couscous or quinoa.
  • Place in 1-cup section of the meal prep container.

The Best Tool for Zoodles

  • Cut the top stalk off of a washed and dried zucchini. Place the cut top on the blade side of the GoodCook 5 Blade Spiralizer. Grip the zucchini firmly and twist. Zucchini noodles will come out the other end of the GoodCook 5 Blade Spiralizer.

Tips for Storing Extra Zoodles

  • Spiralize as much zucchini as you think you’ll need for a week. Don’t cook what you plan to store.
  • To store in the fridge, use high-quality containers with lids, like these GoodCook Melamine Nesting Bowl Set With Lids.
  • Store zucchini noodles for up to 5 days in the fridge.
  • To cook, sauté zoodles in a GoodCook Smart Choice Fry Pan in olive oil for 2-3 minutes, or microwave, covered, for about 2 minutes.
