I think it’s fair to say that we love Chinese food. You cannot beat some hot, tasty noodles on the Weekend. Noodles from the takeaway just aren’t worth the calories, not to mention the lack of filling veggies. This Spiralized Vegetable and Chicken Chow Mein is the perfect choice!

This Spiralized Vegetable and Chicken Chow Mein is rammed with vegetables in the form of spiralized courgette & carrots. The Kenwood Spiralizer has been a welcome addition to our kitchen (who doesn’t like a kitchen gadget!).

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

It takes the fuss out of spiralizing; less mess, safer to use, easier to clean and takes up even less space in the cupboard than the regular spiralizer we used to have.

The small footprint is very much welcomed, especially given our slight kitchen gadget addiction. Space is scarce!

As you can see in the video, it really is as easy as it looks. Wash your veg, cut off the end, put your veg in, turn it on and out comes beautifully spiralized vegetables!

It’s one of the best ways to up your vegetable intake, whilst bringing such bright colours to your dishes. We eat with our eyes!

We’ve combined the spiralized vegetables with regular egg noodles in this Spiralized Vegetable and Chicken Chow Mein, but if you want to make it even lighter, you can omit the egg noodles altogether.

The Kenwood Spiralizer is available from most reputable retailers as well as the Kenwood Website.
