The Turning Slicer (yes that is what it is called and I bought it on Amazon) comes with three blades to curl, slice, twist and make rings out of veggies or fruit.  It is fun and an easy gadget to use and it works pretty well.

I have been to restaurants that make spaghetti out of vegetables and with a little olive oil, turmeric and cinnamon it is really tasty.  Some restaurants will stir in soy cheese into the vegetable mixture but I prefer it without the cheese.

I bought one of those really thick carrots, a turnip and a sweet potato.  My first experiment with the Turning Slicer was easy and fun.

I then combined the radish and the carrot, added a few teaspoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of toasted sesame seed oil, a few drops of KotteriMirin, a splash of Balsamic Oil and a dash of cinnamon and turmeric for a delightful side dish.

I added my carved veggies as a whimsical decoration.  I had pea pods and sesame seeds and decided to add it to the salad for more flavor and color.

The machine struggled with the density of the potato and carving it was not as easy as the turnip and carrot and in the future I would stick to a Mandolin for potatoes.

Also the potato wasn’t uniform in slices and it turned out to be more of a mish mosh.  Not wanting to waste food I covered the sweet potato shreds in olive oil and garlic salt and roasted the potato in the oven at 350F for ten minutes.  Word of caution; continue to keep an eye on the potatoes as they are very thin slices and could burn instantly.

There are squashes, acorns, jicama and an assorted variety of root veggies that would do well in this machine and even parboiling the curls afterward would lend itself to a milder and less crunchy flavor.  From vinegars that are flavored to assorted spices, there are many options to add to the curls.  I would even attempt spaghetti sauce!
