Team Shape-Shifted Vegetables has a killer roster. The starting line-up is full of stars, from spiralized zucchini (impressive and a little flashy) to cauliflower rice (a powerhouse that goes with everything). But I am here today to extol the virtues of the humblest little benchwarmer in the gang: shaved vegetables. Before I took a cheese plane (a potato peeler or the coarsest option on a box grater would work as well) to an asparagus spear for the first time, I admit that I was suspicious about how much of a difference a little shaving could have. It’s like cutting, right? Only thinner?

WRONG. Well technically right, but it is also so much more than that. When shaved, a spear of asparagus becomes a wide, wiggly noodle of greenery and crunch—no fancy equipment needed. It’s surprising in a great way and has that rare but ideal super power some healthy foods (and all gummy candies) possess: being so delicious that you eat a metric ton without batting an eye. Put shaved asparagus in the game today, Coach! That’s all I’m saying. And probably peas, pistachios, and a big ol’ pile of salty, crumbly cheese, too. I’m not trying to take over your team, but I’ve never lost a game this way.
