I discovered spiralizing vegetables a few years ago and I was inspired to spiralize anything and everything! Recently, I discovered these Green Giant Veggie Spirals at Walmart. Excitement level seriously at a peak!
They’ve pretty much covered the colors of the rainbow with these spiral veggies…how fun! They have carrot, zucchini, beets and butternut squash. And literally the only ingredient is that vegetable. There’s no added preservatives, oils, sauces or seasoning.
That means you can pretty much make it your way and adapt many recipes you already love using spiral veggies. Because hey, we all know when the veggies are in spiral shape it just totally ups the recipe cuteness (errr…appealing) factor!
Think pasta dishes, stir fry, casseroles, salads – just all looking a little more fancy with the little help of some spiral veggies. I recently tried veggie spirals egg nests with the product. They not only looked like the jolliest most colorful breakfast idea, but they were also easy to prepare, loaded with nutrient dense vegetables and absolutely tasty!
How to Make Veggie Spirals Egg Nests
To start, you can microwave the spirals or pan fry them. If you’re microwaving them, I would do 1 less minute than the directions say just because we’ll be cooking these again on the pan with the eggs.
I decided to steam them in the pan, tossing them regularly to break them apart.
It only took me a few minutes to steam them, and I repeated for the other vegetables. The microwave works just as well!
Then I took about a cup of each vegetable and formed round small nests. You want to have a crevice big and deep enough to break one egg into it.
Then it’s time to get cracking. Break the eggs carefully into each nest, and season with salt and pepper or any other seasoning of choice. Of course, some egg whites may break through, and that’s totally ok!
I like to cover the lid to let the eggs cook between 3 and 5 minutes. At 3 minutes the eggs will be slightly runny and at 5 minutes is what I have pictured here.
I love eating them with toasted bread. And I highly recommend using a knife and fork, especially if you’re eyeing the beets one. They all have a different taste because of the veggie used, but my favorite is the carrot one. You can add cheese, herbs, avocado, kale, whatever you’d like to make this a complete and even more colorful meal!
In the end, if you choose just one of the spirals, your prep time is so little compared to actually spiralizing the veggies yourself (and can we talk about that cleanup?). The recipe is beaming with bright colors and an even brighter flavor, which is perfect for summer!
Now it’s your turn to embrace the healthy trend of spiralized veggies but with modern day convenience. What will you make with these veggie spirals?!
