Forget the gadget. Grocery stores such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's now sell pre-spiralized veggies that shorten prep time—and add a new twist to dinner.
Butternut Squash Fritters With Cilantro Yogurt
These flavorful fritters are latkes made easy: no grating or shredding required. Starting with store-bought butternut squash noodles means this crispy dish is ready in just half an hour. Make sure your oil is hot before adding the squash mixture, which will encourage browning.

Spiralized Sesame Beet Salad
This Asian-inspired side dish is crunchy and sweet, and might just be our new favorite way to eat beets. If you can’t find spiralized beet noodles (available at Fresh Market and Whole Foods, among other grocery stores), shredded beets would be just as nice. Or, opt for carrot noodles.

Green Coconut Curry With Zucchini Noodles and Tofu
A quick curry is a weeknight dinner savior, and this vegetarian version is no exception. Because all curry pastes differ in spiciness, taste the broth before adding more. Don’t hesitate to experiment with other veggies, such as eggplant or broccoli.
