IngredientsServes: 2

  • 4 medium courgettes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper, to taste

MethodPrep:10min ›Cook:1min ›Ready in:11min

  1. Trim the ends off the courgettes then cut into 'spaghetti' by using a julienne slicer. Peel down to the start of the inner seeds, but no further. The core of the courgette does not hold up well when cooked this way, discard the seed core or use for another dish.
  2. Warm a little oil in a wok over a high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the courgette. Cook and stir for about 1 to 2 minutes, moving the courgette around constantly, just until the courgette has becomes slightly tender and warm through. Immediately transfer to a warmed serving bowl and serve immediately with a sauce of your choice.

Roasted Chicken & Veg Courgetti with Creamy Pesto

I mentioned in yesterday’s Sweet Potato Curly Fries post that I am doing something called Whole30 for a month, the idea being to clean up my diet and hopefully improve my sleeping and my overall health.

As part of this programme I have eliminated all grains from my diet and so I have been using one of my favourite kitchen gadgets, a spiralizer, nearly every day in an attempt to create pasta and noodle-like substitutions from vegetables.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to post only Whole30 posts for the next month as am still cooking “normal” food for my family and want this blog to very much remain full of family friendly fussy eating-busting recipes.

However I am trying to improve all of our eating habits, not just mine, cut down on everyone’s sugar intake and up their portions of vegetables every day.

So if my family have eaten and enjoyed some of my Whole30 meals then I will post those recipes here.

If you want to see more (or less!) of these kinds of recipes please do let me know.

Our take on the classic Spanish omelette. The sweetness of the potato and smokiness of the mackerel make for a great speedy supper.

By grating the courgette and finely slicing the fennel, you&rsquoll cut down on cooking time.

We&rsquove served this with buckwheat, a nutrient-rich grain-like fruit seed that&rsquos low in calories but high in vitamins and minerals.

Vary this salad seasonally by adding your favourite raw vegetables or seeds.

Courgetti Recipes

Courgetti (‘pasta’ made of courgettes) is such a great invention! A couple of months ago I’ve bought a spiralizer and I’m creating one healthy recipe after the other. Using courgette instead of pasta is such an easy way to make your dinner vegan, gluten free, low carb and super healthy! You’ve probably already figured out that ‘courgetti’ is a composition of courgette and spaghetti. In the US they often call it ‘zoodles’, combining the words zucchini and noodles.

I’ve made a page for you where I’m sharing my favorite courgetti recipes.
