Use a mandoline to slice the fruit lengthwise into strips, holding the mandoline firmly and taking care to keep your fingers away from the blade. If you have a guard on your mandoline, use it to hold the fruit in place as you slice it. Once you’ve sliced your fruit, place it in a bowl and cover it with plastic wrap. Let it sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours before serving.
Can I use a mandoline to shred zucchini?
Cut off one end of the zucchini, then drag it across the mandoline. The squash coins should be the right size and shape with a mandoline. Cut off the other end, and place it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut it in half lengthwise. You can also use a serrated knife, but I find it easier to do this by hand.
If you don’t have a knife handy, you can use your hands to make the cut. Once you’ve cut the two halves, place the halves on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before serving.
Can you shred with a mandolin?
Place one quarter of cabbage on top of the mandoline and then use your blade guard to push it through the blade, until you shred the entire thing. You won’t be able to cut it all the way through if the piece of cabbage is too big for the mandoline.
Once you’ve shredded the cabbage, place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
Do I need to remove seeds from zucchini?
Small zucchini will not need the seeds removed because they are very tender and cook up well. The bigger zucchini will need the seeds removed. The seeds can be removed with a spoon if they are stuck to the bottom of the pan. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the garlic, cumin, coriander, and salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and the spices are fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes more. Remove from the heat and set aside. In a small bowl
- Whisk together the flour
- Baking powder
- 2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
Whisk the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
Pour the batter into a greased 9-inch springform pan and smooth the top with a spatula. 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
How do you cut a zucchini sheet?
If you want to make zucchini noodles with a kitchen knife, slice off the ends of the zucchini and then slice it into thin planks. Similar to what you would use for pasta, slice the planks into sticks. Place the noodles in a large bowl and cover with cold water to stop them from sticking to each other. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let them soak for at least an hour.
Drain the water and rinse them under cold running water. You can also use a strainer to remove the excess water, but I find it easier to do this by hand. If you don’t drain them thoroughly, you will end up with noodles that are too watery and won’t be able to hold their shape when you cook them. This is why I recommend draining them first.
Once you have drained them, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake them for about 15 minutes, or until they are cooked through and the edges are golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes before serving.
