  • Butternut squash noodles: Look for a squash with a long neck. Chop off the fat, seedy base of the squash and save it for another use (see suggestions in the post above). Peel the squash and use a spiralizer to make noodles.
  • Beet noodles: Look for a large beet. Peel off the skin and use a spiralizer to make noodles.

  • Daikon noodles: Use a spiralizer to make noodles.
  • Summer squash noodles: Look for a large yellow squash. Use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to make noodles. Or use a regular vegetable peeler and peel into thick ribbon-shaped noodles. There’s no need to peel the skin of the squash.
  • Kohlrabi noodles: Chop the greens off and save for another use. Peel off any nubby parts from the kohlrabi bulb. Use a spiralizer to make noodles.
  • Sweet potato noodles: Look for a thick sweet potato. Peel the sweet potato and use a spiralizer to make noodles.
  • Zucchini noodles: Look for a large zucchini. Use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to make noodles. Or use a regular vegetable peeler and peel into thick ribbon-shaped noodles. There’s no need to peel the skin of the zucchini.
