The Curried Courgette ‘Spaghetti’

When I eat on my own, I can’t be bothered preparing an elaborated meal. I made this dish with three ingredients and in less than 10 minutes, it’s super easy and fun to eat! Needless to say that it’s also very much healthy and clean.

Ingredients (for one)

  • Courgette, 1/2
  • Cherry tomatoes, a big handful
  • Coriander, a handful
  • Curry powder, 1 teaspoon
  • Salt and pepper

Procedure

Wash the courgette and tomatoes. Use a spiraliser to make the courgette spaghetti or simply cut it in long stripes. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Chop the coriander.

Heat a little olive oil in a pan and add the spaghetti, cook until tender. In another pan, cook the cherry tomatoes until tender as well. Add the curry powder, salt and pepper.

Serve warm, sprinkle with the coriander. You can add some parmesan cheese if you fancy it!

Tadaaaaaaa!

The summery courgette caviar

My friend Louis gave me a humongous courgette from his parents’ garden. I wasn’t sure what to do with it until I remembered making an aubergine caviar a little while ago.

It’s super duper easy, perfect as a dip with some raw veggies and/or crackers. Ideal for a healthy summery appetiser!

All you need is a blender or a mixer.

(I have to be honest with you, the colour isn’t really shimmering so I didn’t take a picture).

The chickpea, courgette and quinoa burger

I had never made veggie burgers before, true story. I’ve prepared tuna patties, chicken meatballs, but never actual veggie burgers ! My dear friend Mimi was the very first one to have dinner with me in my new place, so I wanted to make something new and delicious!

I came across a recipe on Avoca Pesto – a nice clean eating website – so I decided to use it as a base. I reproduced almost all the steps, but I changed some ingredients to have different flavours.

20 minutes of preparation + another 20 minutes to cook.

6 burgers (depending on how big you like them – mine were pretty big so I could only make 4 – I reckon smaller would have been better)

The goat cheese bites

Spring is gently settling in over here, it has definitely become my favourite season – summer is overrated anyway.  There is a little park down my street, and it’s simply gorgeous! Japanese cherry trees and magnolias are blooming, flowers everywhere, baby ducks in the pound; it’s really a time embrace new beginnings and to put colours in our lives! And that’s exactly what I did, I went to the market and bought as many fruit and vegetables of different colours as I could : purple and yellow carrots, bell peppers, red and juicy strawberries, courgette, beetroot, etc. Continue reading
