Food hack: How to create zucchini and carrot "noodles" without a spiralizer

Useful for: Creating vegetable noodles without a spiralizer.

What you need: A vegetable peeler

What to do: The trendy spiralizer — that contraption that turns vegetables like zucchini and carrots into thin, spaghetti-like noodles — is already pretty low-tech. But if you don't have one, or want something even lower-tech, bring your vegetable peeler out of the drawer and take it to these veggies. Start with a long zucchini or carrot, then simply run a vegetable peeler down the side, pushing slightly harder than you would to peel it. This will create long, very thin strands that curl into pasta-like form when placed in a bowl.

Editor's note: This is part of a new video series called Food Hack, where we offer tips and tricks you can put to use in the kitchen.
