I think most of you know I’m pretty obsessed with my spiralizer, (I LOVE my Paderno Spiral Vegetable Slicer) but my friend Ali is even more obsessed than me, if that’s even possible. So obsessed, she devoted her entire blog to this gadget and just came out with a cookbook that you will need to get your hands on! The book is called Inspiralized: Turn Vegetables into Healthy, Creative, Satisfying Meals. Tons of great spiralized ideas, everything from breakfast to dessert – the girl is a spiralizing genius!

I had a hard time deciding what to make first, but since I typically make spiralized zucchini and cucumber dishes with my spiralizer, so I chose a dish using beets instead. As a kid, I hated beets because I only tasted the pickled kind, that came in a jar. As an adult, I started enjoying them roasted in salads, and even discovered how delicious they are raw. Here, the beets are spiralized, tossed with vinegar, oil and herbs and roasted for 20 minutes. Once roasted, the beets are tender yet firm, exactly how I like my vegetables. If you’re unsure about beets, I know this dish will convert you!

The only changes I made to her recipe was using less cheese, I cut the block in half horizontally and it was still more than plenty.

  1. 🤤🤤🤤🤤 SO good!!! All the ingredients work so beautifully together. Especially the oregano. Served this for lunch.

  2. I have made this for a couple years and never tire of it — beet, feta, and tomatoes, are some of my favorite food staples. To be able to have them together is even better! Have even made this for get-togethers and it is always a hit!

  3. This was delicious!!! 

  4. I made it for a dinner party last night along with Milk Streets Salmon and a kale salad from there as well.
    The beet dish was wonderful. I made it ahead and covered it with foil, per directions, popping it in after friends were here and appetizing. I bought the beets pre spiralized at my market so it came together pretty quickly. The saltiness of the olives and the feta….the best….yum.

  5. I made it for a dinner party along with salmon and a kale salad. I doubled the recipe and it was a big hit. The saltiness of the feta and the olives are perfect. I used beets that were already spiralized so it came together pretty quickly. I could make it ahead and leave it in the fridge until I was ready to pop that foil covered loveliness in the oven. Yum

  6. You nutritional breakdown says 9g carbs, while mine comes to 22g. Must be the amount of beets! Any idea how many grams 2 small beets amounts to? (not how many carb grams, I mean how many grams or oz or lbs your beets weigh?) Thank you!


  7. Pingback: Ode to Beets: 150+ Reasons to Love this Root Veggie – slice of sunshine

  8. Great combination of flavors. Thank you!

  9. My first spiralized vegetable was a beet. It was so sweet and crunchy and fresh tasting. I've been chasing that sweet beet ever since and it never quite measures up.

  10. We love zuc/chicken with tomatos and mozzerlla

  11. I have this dish in the oven as I type! I stumbled upon the Paderno Veggie Slicer today, just by chance, and when I saw that it was marked down from 49.99 to 29.99, I was so excited! Never did I think I would find this locally!

    Cant wait to see how this dish turns out, it looks beautiful!

    My next purchase is that awesome cook book!

  12. Thoughts on doing this as a cold dish? I'm thinking that doing it raw with crumbled feta sounds light and delish! Or would I need to quickly blanch the beets to soften a bit? Would love to hear your thoughts!

  13. I just made this for dinner tonight. It was wonderful. It's definitely a real keeper. I always thought I hated beets till I tried a couple of your recipes using them. Thanks for helping to keep my eating interesting and delicious.

  14. I'm loving the zucchini noodles. I just bought the Paderno spiralizer last month and Ali's Vietnamese Pho bowl with Diakon noodles looks good!

  15. So was the contest winner announced? I missed it…

  16. I just bought a spiralizer and need some recipes so would love to win the book. I have only done zucchini with garlic butter.

  17. I need to get a spirilizer and obviously a cookbook as well! This sounds amazing

  18. I made the beets tonight and it was delicious. I had beets that I needed to use but the next time I make this I will look for beets that are the size that will fit my spiral slicer. These did not, way too fat, and made a mess. I ended up shaving small slices going around and around the beet. That was fine, the taste was still the same! I didn't have parsley but did have cilantro so used that, fresh thyme, and fresh oregano. The garlic and red wine vinegar really make the flavor unique and I will definitely make it again.

  19. I'm pretty new to spiralizing, but last night I made the
    Spiralized Vegetable Cornmeal Fritters and they were perfect with our black eyed peas!

  20. I substitute zoodles for spaghetti when making cold sesame noodles (and eat them warm). Would love to have the cookbook and get more ideas for using my spiralizer.

  21. Shrimp Scampi Zoodles!!

  22. would love to try this gadget!

  23. I like spiralized zucchini – in place of pasta or a as a salad base. But, those beets look divine! Will be trying.

  31. I got my Spiralizer for Christmas, and haven't used it yet. I love beets so perhaps this would be my first recipe to try it out. Although Greek Salads are something I make often, perhaps spiralize a cucumber to jazz that up?? Would love to win

  40. I went out and purchased this Spiralizer right after you posted your Kung Pao Chicken Zoodles. I could not wait to try it and see if my son would finally eat Zucchini. He did! He still said they were not his favourite but he ate them. I love the idea of the beets. We all love beets and I want to make Carrot straws as well. Thank you for inspiring me and for opening up your contest to Canadians.

    Cheers, Melody vdA, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada

  41. I really like to spiralize my vegetables and have spiralized so much that my dogs are beginning to run around the house with their tails tucked under them.

  51. I just purchased the spiral slicer and I'm not sure where to start, I could really use this cookbook! I love beets and feta so I'm anxious to try this recipe. My goal is to improve my health, eat cleaner non processed foods and hopefully be able to get off my cholesterol medication.

  52. Zoodles, pancetta, tomato sauce & basil because my 6 year old (who strongly dislikes zucchini) LOVES it!

  53. I love her recipes, get her emails daily

  54. I usually use zucchini in the spiralizer, but am a huge fan of beets so I can't wait to give this recipe a try!

  55. I can't wait to get some beets and try this recipe. I love beets and this recipe looks scrumptious, it may just be the recipe I have been looking for to convince my husband how yummy beets really are. I love to make grilled shrimp and red pepper pesto zucchini noodles.

  72. Just made this last night, and it was delicious! I made with a combo of golden and red beet, eliminated most of the cheese (just finished with a sprinkle of fat-free feta crumbles), reduced the olives down to 4, and cut out the olive oil. The result was so delicious and flavorful filling and very filling, but still really light.

    Definitely one to try!

  76. Spirilized beets look amazing. I have only made spritlized zucchini, I have to expand what I use my spirilizer for. Dawn R

  77. New to spiralizing so just starting to try your recipes. Would love the cookbook. Absolutely love subbing the zoodles for pasta. I've been pasta-free for a while as I've been revamping/improving my diet. Good to enjoy more Italian fare again.

  78. I love to use spiralized vegetables as a substitute for grain-based noodles in Asian dishes, include soups and stir fries. I really like zucchini noodles in Szechwan sauce. Rounded out with some mushrooms and sometimes shrimp, it is filling and flavorful!

Among the many SkinnyTaste recipes we have enjoyed is Shrimp Scampi Zoodles for Two, but have put this beet and feta dish on our weekend menu.

  85. I like to spiralize cucumbers and add cherry tomatoes, moz cheese with salt and pepper and mix together with olive oil. Yum!

  86. I just received my spirilizer in the mail yesterday and can't wait to try the shrimp and zucchini noodles and the greek cucumber noodles! Lara B

  89. I love teriyaki "fried" noodles and I use zucchini, parsnip, and daikon noodles

  90. I don't have a spiralizer yet, but I think I would have to try the kung pao chicken first! (Although the beets look pretty amazing, too.)

    The first thing I'm trying is your Kung Pao zoodles for two. I never thought to spiralize beets. Love beets!

  99. Out of your recipes my favorite is the shri scampi zoodle for 2 (that I made for 4 ?). Delicious and so simple. Out of my recipes my favorite is raw zucchini marinated with line juice and a little olive oil + salt and pepper. Served with thin flakes of Parmesan cheese + a few roasted pine nuts. Delicious and fresh 'salad' (veggie side dish) in the summer. Great for bbq's.

  100. Shrimp Scampi Zoodles!!!! Can't go wrong!

  101. This recipe looks wonderful! My kids love the spiralized cucumber with a teeny bit of salt and rice vinegar. Easy and yummy!

  102. Kung Pao Zoodles, for sure, but am looking forward to trying this beet recipe. I just recently learned to love beets thanks to your beet and carrot salad. I had always hated them before…or thought I did!!

  103. I have just received my spirilizer and have not yet used it. I started to eat healthier and exercise so winning this cookbook would really help me in achieving my goals. I love receiving your recipes and enjoy cooking them. thanks. looking forward to trying this one too.

  114. Between your beet recipe and all these comments, I just have to get a spiralizer asap! Would love to win the cookbook to go with it!

  115. My favorite is Spiralized Raw Zucchini Salad with Avocado and Edamame. So good and my husband who doesn't like anything loved it too!

  116. Kung Pao is my favorite and even my grandson loves it. It was worth buying the spiralizer just for that.

  117. Ok ok ok! I can resist no longer! I've been reading and drooling long enough. I didn't realize there were so many skinny taste spiraizing recipes!!

  119. I love my Paderno and have made a ton of zoodles. Can't wait to try beets though!

  120. I have been using my Julienne peeler on lots of vegetables. I think a spiralizer should find a spot in my kitchen.

  121. Gina, I'm sure you may have already heard that I am your biggest fan. You have inspired my love for cooking. That alone is more than enough to admire you. According to those around me, I am an amazing chef, best wife ever, great friend who throws delicious parties, a great nutritional motivator, and…my favorite…a cool mom. Simply because I can read a recipe! I grew up in Astoria, New York, the Greek capital here in the US. My friends and I cruised around Astoria always in search of our favorite food…A greek salad with grilled shrimp. We were young and always "dieting" but those salads always seemed special. So hands down, my favorite spiralized recpe has to be the Spiralized Greek Cucumber Salad with Lemon and Feta . After a great workout, I like to add the Pan seared shrimp for the extra protein. Before you know it, I'm reliving my teenage years again minus the big hair of course! Not only have you turned me into a fantastic cook, but you've also made me young again! Maggie

  122. I can only pick one…that's tough. I guess it would be your shrimp scampi zoodles for two since I make that over and over. This beet recipe looks great. Can't wait to try it!

  123. I just received a spiralizer for my birthday last weekend and cannot wait to test it out so this cookbook would be perfect.

  124. I've honestly not made one yet as I don't have a spiralizer, but anything with zucchini as the "pasta" I would love! Like a marinara over it-YUM!

  125. Looks and sounds super yummy!

  126. I've never spiralized, but the spiralized cucumber salad looks AWESOME! I'm also thinking using a hearty squash and curry seasonings might be yummy, and warming here in cold Michigan.

  127. I haven't spiralized enough.
    This looks amazing.

  128. I got a spiralizer for Christmas but haven't used it yet because I don't know what to make! This looks delicious and I would love to win your cookbook so that I could learn what to make.

  129. I haven't gotten really creative yet, mainly creating noodles. So I would love this book! Sounds like its just what I need!

  130. Huge fan of my spiralizer too… thanks for the tip on the book, which I had to pre-order… could not resist it!

  131. I love spiralized cucumbers.

  132. I had thought I really couldn't spend the money on a spiralizer but recently found, what seemed to be an unused, one at Value Village. One of the first thing that I tried was the Shrimp Scampi Zoodles for Two. So tasty! I have gone crazy turning *everything* possible into veggy noodles (voodles?) and would love a cookbook like this. Thanks! (sorry for the multiple deletes and re-comments-I need to wake up and have a coffee)

  133. You turned me on to the Paderno Vegetable Slicer and I ordered from Amazon immediately after seeing your zucchini recipe. When it came in went to work on the zucchini and wow, fast and delicious. My husband loved it and with him and I both trying to lose some weight, we were hooked. I can't wait to try this beet recipe, we love beets. I am not to the point yet where i trust myself to come up with ideas so the book would be a great way for me to experiment. Thanks for all your posts.

  134. Skinny Taste Gina,
    We have started a Skinny Taste lunch club at work. Every Thursday 12 of us bring something out of your cookbook/website. WE LOVE IT!. Some things are a challenge because we do not have an oven here. I want to make the beets but do you think it would be alright to cook the night before and then carefully re-heat in a crock pot the next day? Any suggestions? Thanks for a life style change at work! P.S. Just bought a spriralizer, love zoodles with olive oil, roasted garlic and red pepper flakes, Plain and beautiful.

  135. Ok, after reading this post I just need to get on the bandwagon! I have been thinking that, what do I need another kitchen tool for just to sit in a drawer and never be used. Lately though, I have been seeing some amazing recipes and think it's time to try this!! Thanks for all the recipes!!

  136. Kung Pao zoodles…just got my zoodle maker this week. I have saved several of your recipes and cant wait to try…soon!

  137. I love Zoodles with homemade tomato sauce! I just got a spiralizer and I can't wait to try out some of your great recipes – and I'd love the book for inspiration as well.

  138. Zoodles with turkey sausage onions peppers and mushrooms with a small amount of marinara. YUM!!

  139. This looks delicious! I can't decide if my favorite is zucchini with tomato sauce and turkey meatballs or zucchini Pad Thai, I love them both! Thanks, Gina, for all your great recipes.

  140. This looks amazing! Can't wait to try! thanks for sharing!

  141. I just got my spiralizer as a gift so I haven't made too much with it yet. So far my favorite is a simple Zoodles with marinara sauce and lots of parmesan. Can't wait to try beets and I'm glad to hear that it washes off and doesn't stain.

  142. Zoodles with your Asian Meatballs! Delish!

  143. So far, I've only tried zucchini and it's great! I just got a spiralizer and I can't wait to try it on other vegetables!

  144. Do I have to pick just one spiralized recipe I love??? My spiralizer has become a weeknight staple. Especially making a greek salad with spiralized cucumber and grilled chicken!

  145. Sweet potato and potato curly fries! Just got my spiralizer so haven't had the chance to try much else yet.

  146. I'm not a big pasta fan to start with so this concept is fantastic! Can't wait to try this recipe as I love beets! Thank you!


  147. This looks SO delicious. I've never done beets in my machine 🙂
    My favourite spirallized recipe is simple spiralled potatoes with garlic, salt & pepper tossed in olive oil and baked in the oven!
    This has become my fave kitchen tool to eat healthy.

  148. Zucchini seems to be THE favorite, but potatoes roasted in the oven with just olive oil, salt & pepper are quick & easy.

  149. I just started spiralizing and would so love to win that cookbook.

  150. Beets are actually my favorite thing to spiralize…raw with goat cheese and candied nuts= heaven:)
    P.S. Love your site, wondering if you have any spiralized recipes in your cookbook?

  151. I haven't used my spiralizer yet, but we love beets, so will definitely try this. Thanks.
