"Eat your vegetables." I am finding this directive even easier now that I have a German vegetable shredder.
I absolutely love my Borner Roko Vegetable Shredder or "Thin Julienne Cutter". After a lifetime of soggy zucchini discs cooked in water, this little kitchen tool has breathed new life into a classic garden staple.
After grating the zucchini up and down the special blades (with an easy swish-swish), you will have a gorgeous pile of shredded zucchini. The amount shown in the bowl is from one normal-size zucchini. I ended up shredding three zucchini and sauteed them with a little butter and salt and it was out of this world. What a side dish!
I think that I am overly happy about this discovery because we have 6 very healthy zucchini plants in our garden this year and I can see the writing on the wall. I am going to be cooking a lot of zucchini this Summer and there is only so much Zucchini Bread I can bake and give away. But with this little tool, I am ready!
