For the Courgetti -

  • 1/2 Large courgette

  • 5 - 6 Blanched Almonds , chopped



  1. Heat a large frying pan on a medium heat, add the coconut oil. Once melted add the onion and garlic and gently cook until softened.

  2. Add all of the chopped vegetables except for the kale at this stage and cook  for about 5 minutes, stirring throughout. During this time spiralise your courgette and put on a plate.

  3. Add the Kale to the frying pan and cook for a minute mixing it into the veg, throw in the the basil,  thyme, pepper, salt, lemon juice and chilli flakes and cook for a further  2 minutes.

  4. Give everything a good stir and then add in the creme fraiche and gently mix in.

  5. Once combined and heated through take your vegetable mix off the heat and pour over the courgetti.  Sprinkle with the lemon zest and another good grind of pepper before topping with the chopped almonds and a few springs of fresh basil leaves and eat immediately.

  6. Using the thick stalk of a Brocolli and chopping into chunks is a great fibrous food for your gut and you are also reducing waste by eating all the vegetable.
