Have you wondered whether you could freeze zoodles? Yes, you CAN freeze zoodles!
Did you know you could freeze zoodles? I didn’t!
I found only negative answers to that question with an online search but why can’t I freeze them? Zucchini freezes with fine results.
With all of the zucchini available when it is in season and all of the zoodles I like to eat year round, I had to try and I found out that Yes, you CAN freeze zoodles!
I simply made my zoodles, put them in a Ziploc bag and put them into the freezer. I waited a week or so and pulled them out and let them thaw.
They were more watery than when I put them in but still firm and still zoodles. It was simple to drain off any extra water.
I gently boiled them for just a few minutes like I usually do for using them under my homemade spaghetti sauce, drained them well as usual and. . . they were good!
I noticed absolutely no difference in fresh or frozen zoodles.
Oh, this is going to change things!
I love my veggetti pro for making zoodles but if I don’t have to pull it out every single time and wash several pieces every single time, that makes me happy! 🙂
Some recipes I would saute them instead of boiling, like Lemon Dill Shrimp and Zucchini Noodles and Zucchini Noodles Parmesan and it also works just fine for that.
The only reason I think it would not work is if you eat them raw in a recipe. There may be a difference in texture then. I haven’t tried that.
If you have any doubts that you will like them after freezing, just do a small bag to start. Try it and see. That is how I did it and I decided I like them a lot!
I plan to have my freezer full of zoodles in individual servings ready to pull out and cook up this winter! Oh, boy! 🙂
