Since our Week 8 blog we have purchased a julienne slicer and are using it regularly to make zucchini and eggplant noodles. This handy-as-can-be gadget can turn a jumbo zucchini into the equivalent of a box of spaghetti in no time.
Another use of the noodles is in a slaw. Simply mix them with some thinly sliced onions and grated carrots. Add some salt and pepper, your favorite slaw dressing, and it is a raw delight. Some finally chopped hot peppers, or pepperoncini rings are a good addition.
We have had good comments from those of you that have tried the kraut. Here in our kitchen we find it the perfect filling for a Reubenesque sandwich. Our version of this meatless reuben has a combo of Skyview Farms and Goatsbeard farm cheeses---Colby and Pitzicato respectively. A roasted hot pepper per sandwich seals the deal. Yum.
