Ginger-Scallion Egg Drop Zucchini Noodle Soup

Ginger Scallion Zucchini Noodle Soup - healthy, vegetarian + paleo!

Today I’ve got something really special to share with you – and it involves my love of spiralizing.

If you’ve never heard of a spiralizer before, you’re in for a treat. A spiralizer – only one of the best kitchen tools ever invented – is a nifty little contraption that magically turns vegetables into noodles. Yes, noodles. Like long, gorgeous, spaghetti. Except they’re vegetables.

See? I’m telling you it’s sheer genius! You get all that is awesome about pasta, only you’re basically just eating a salad. Love it.

If haven’t already read about my love for my spiralizer in some of my own spiralized recipes, then I’m sure you’ve seen some of my spirazlied creations on Instagram and heard me talk about my good friend Ali.

Ali is the founder of Inspiralized, one of my favorite food blogs on the planet, and is without a doubt the queen of all things spiralized. Like SQ is all about quinoa, Inspiralized is all about the spiralizer and 100% dedicated to spirazlied veggies. .

I first met Ali over a year ago at a coffee shop here in NYC. It wasn’t a chance meeting, I actually emailed her because I loved her blog and just wanted to thank her for her recipes. She emailed me back that day and from there we realized we lived just across the river from each other and decided to meet up for coffee.

We chatted all things food blogging of course, and over the past year we’ve become even better friends. Supporting each other as we grow our businesses, bouncing ideas off one another and venting when we need to let out a little frustration. (I mean we’re only human, right!?)

But what makes Ali so amazing, aside from the fact that she’s a great friend, is the creativity she brings to her blog and her recipes. We’re not talking just plain old spaghetti (or should I say zoodles) and meatballs – although she does have a kick ass recipe on her site that you should try – she has reimagined the way that I, and thousands of others, look at vegetables.

She makes eating vegetables fun!

And even more exciting (and our exciting news for the day), today Ali has just released her first COOKBOOK!! And yes, it’s all about spiraizing! (check out her video to learn more!)

To help celebrate the launch, I’m bringing you one of my favorite dishes from the book. It was so hard to choose just one to make, but I settled on her Ginger Scallion Egg Drop Soup because I’ve been loving all things comfort food lately and noodle soups are one of my favorites!

Just as I imagined, the soup was sensational. Even though it only takes 15 minutes to make, I loved how much flavor she was able to pack into each bowl. From the gingery broth, the bite of the scallions and the creamy eggs, this soup was warm, rich and inviting. I didn’t want it to end!

But unlike traditional ramen bowls that tend to be heavy, over-salted and leave you with a feeling of discomfort, the inspirazlied version was clean, light and fresh. I felt healthier just looking at it!

What’s even better, Matt, who isn’t a fan of zoodles, gobbled it right up. And as I’ve said before, that’s when I know we’ve got a winner!

Learn how to Spiralize Vegetables with the Inspiralized Cookbook!

With one recipe down, I now have the rest of the cookbook to get through! It's hard to choose what to make next – I'm drooling over EVERYTHING – but here's just a taste of what I'm most excited to try:

  • “Everything Bagel” Breakfast Buns
  • Beet, Goat Cheese + Pomegranate Endive Cups
  • Avocado-Lime Mason Jar Salad
  • Collard Hummus Wraps with Golden Beets + Sprouts
  • Arugula, Olive + Onion Sweet Potato Pizza Stacks
  • Beet Superfood Bowl
  • Pesto Spaghetti with Heirloom Grape Tomatoes

and so many more!!

I can't recommend this cookbook enough. If you want to purchase your copy, hop on over to Amazon! And make sure to share your pics with us using #inspiralizedcookbook!

  1. I LOVE my Spiralizer and Inspiralized – I’m waiting on my copy of the cookbook in the mail. Thanks for your thoughts and insight (and I’m so jealous you’ve had the opportunity to meet Ali!) I’ve never made a spiralized soup before, but it’s a brilliant idea.

  2. I’m wondering if there is a brand of spiralizer you would reccomend. I have looked at the one padermo sells and considered getting it from amazon at the same time I can order Ali’s book. Living a long way away from the city online is the way for me to shop for things like this

  3. I love Inspiralized, too. Just the other day I made her Miso Soup with Ginger Salmon. Divine!! Thanks for sharing out her cookbook. I’ll have to check it out!
