Courgetti with prawns and homemade pesto
One thing I never want to hear my clients say is that they are bored of healthy food. The food I like to cook at home is fresh, easy to make, full of nutrients and also full of taste and textures! So here is one for you to try out and make your healthy evening meal into something far from boring.
Start by making the pesto...
You will need :
50g fresh basil
A few mint leaves
2cm piece of fresh ginger chopped
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
70ml coconut water
30ml garlic infused olive oil
Combine all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
For the courgetti and prawns...
You will need:
2 medium courgettes spiralized (you can also buy ready spiralized courgette if you do not have a spiralizer).
Fresh prawns enough for 2 people
Salt and pepper to taste
Cherry tomatoes and chopped avocado (optional)
Parmesan or vegan Parmesan alternative.
In a wok or large pan melt around 1/2 tbsp coconut oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Add the courgette and prawns and cook for around 8 minutes until starting to soften.
Serve into bowls and combine with a few tablespoons of the pesto. If you have some left over this can be stored for 3-4 days in the fridge.
Top with cherry tomatoes, sliced avocado and a generous sprinkle or Parmesan or vegan Parmesan (my favorite is Violife).
