Spiralised Courgette with Avocado Sauce

Updated on June 20, 2019

Elle is newly finished with her degree in Psychology with Criminology. She loves to bake, read and write.

A quick recipe that I'm writing from Paris because I remember it by heart, and my recipe book is still in England. This recipe is very popular because it's easy and very quick to make. However, if you have a sensitive stomach, I would advise you not to make or eat this. I don't know what it is about this recipe, maybe it's the garlic but it gets your tummy upset.

Anyway, this recipe comes from a time in my life where I was on a very strong health kick. I wanted to become vegetarian, eat healthy, and exercise. Not really to feel better in my body, because I really did not, but because I really wanted to show people that I was capable to care for myself. In the end, I did manage it but I learnt that going hard on everything in order to prove something to people, especially when it comes to your body, is incredibly dangerous and will not fix or improve your mental health. Now, I still enjoy the foods I ate then but I don't restrict or beat myself up if I am not having a great food day. Of course, there are still things I want to improve. At dinner today I realised that I didn't want to eat processed sweets and snacks anymore. While they are delicious and I enjoy eating them immensely, they make me feel bad, my body feels strange and uncomfortable. So, for the next foreseeable future I will be working on beating my sugar addiction.


Ingredients

  • 500 grams Courgette spaghetti
  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 Garlic cloves
  • 1 bunch Spinach
  • 1 Lemon

Instructions

  1. First, juice one lemon into a blender, then add the contents of the avocado, the garlic cloves to the lemon juice. Blitz until it looks like a thick green sauce
  2. Gently fry the courgette noodles in a knob of butter or a teaspoon of oil, when the noodles look cooked and lightly caramelised, add the sauce. When everything is hot, it is good to serve. If you don't like the sauce hot, it is perfectly fine to have it raw.
