Lemon Cucumber Noodles with Cumin

Well I am back in Southern California, and it has been great to see everyone back here in my life.  I can’t believe I was gone for like 6 weeks but now is the time to get back into the swing of things the best I can.  Had some amazing trips and made some HUGE life decisions that will be coming to light shortly.  And just know that these decisions are all based on all the amazing people that read my blog and I will always need and love your support.  You all drive me to be great and I want to fulfill that.  I love my spiral slicer, you can see it and my famous hands in action: HERE. This recipe will take you 5 minutes and you will love it.  And here is my new Spiral Slicer’s first product, a 6 Foot Cucumber Noodle

  1. I tripled this recipe for my family and it turned out REALLY salty. I couldn’t even eat more than a few bites. I don’t know what I did wrong, since all of the other comments say it was good… Any advice?

  2. Ooooh! Never thought of cucumber! You clever dude!! I always make “tagliatelle” with courgettes/baby marrow/zucchini (whatever you like to call it in your neck of the woods lol). SO going to try this with snozzcumbers (sorry grew up on Roald Dahl) Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. Yippee!!! Something else I can make with my new spiral slicer (one of my Christmas presents to myself…) This looks like a nice, light cool side… which I eat most of the year here in central FL.

  4. This is DELICIOUS! I just made it with the Lime Cumin Pork Chop recipe. Fantastic combo with both having the cumin. I peeled my cukes, then just grated them on the larger grate of a my retired cheese grater. Fantastic and QUICK.

  5. My first thought when I found this recipe is that it would be an excellent paleo base for a cold vietnamese “noodle” salad. I’m gonna get myself a julienne peeler and give it a shot. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. I just bought this spiral splicer (actually using your link in this post) and have to say that was a great investment!! I have been missing noodles, and these are really the best!! I’ve tried the kelp noodles and they just are not for me. But these veggie noodles, I tell ya, something else!! And my three-year-old loves them too, so win-win!! Thanks for the link!! I’ll be using your generic Amazon link as well in the future. Hope you get some good kickbacks!

  7. I FINALLY caved and bought a julienne peeler after seeing all your awesome uses for it. Why did I wait so long? The ‘noodles’ were so easy to make and refreshing. Whenever I have an extra cucumber about to go bad I quickly make this as a small side dish. Also used curry powder once and it was good too, I’ll have to keep experimenting!

  8. I’ve been craving noodles! These really hit the spot! And I must comment on your photos; they are fantastic! I’d love to know how you applied a transparent watermark.

  9. Love love love the spiral slicer, my kids love it too. Now everything they eat comes in noodle form… Also loved the recipe but having so much fun with the slicer.

  10. The recipe was pretty good but a little salty from the 1 tbsp of salt. I added some New Mexico chili powder to give it a kick. I think I’ll use 1 tsp of salt next time. Good base though.

  11. Got my slicer yesterday and just made this. Didn’t have lemon so used coconut vinegar instead. Yummy! Thanks for the recipe.

  12. Thank you so much for the link to the spiral slicer!! I am in love!! Was able to make some zucchini and squash “spaghetti” that even the kids (8 & 10) help make and enjoy! Now to play around and see what else I can slice into noodles!!! LOL!

  13. U just eat the noodles plain or do u use with other recipes. Looks light and refreshing! I need a slicer. I would live that for zucchini!

  14. You inspired me to purchase the spiral slicer! So excited. Even a GF girl needs a noodle every now and again. Love your site.

  15. How great! I literally ordered mine last week, so it should be waiting for me when I get home from work. I’m going to do a zucchini pasta with it and pair it with Brick Chicken (marksdailyapple just posted their rendition). Thanks!

  16. That looks DELISH!!! I have a “noodler” as well & I absolutely love it. I make zucchini pasta with it several times a week!! Thanks for this new idea. I think I’ll make it today! :) (p.s. I follow the SCD diet? Are you familiar with it? A dish like this would be a hit among the SCDer community!)
