Courgetti with an Avocado & Lime Pesto

Spiralisers have taken over as the new must-have kitchen appliance. They are so easy to use and will soon have ou wondering what you ever did without one! Courgetti is my favourite dish by far and since I got a spiraliser for Christmas last year I have made the dish so many times, mixing it up with different pesto’s. I recently moved out of my friends flat and took my spiraliser with me (of course). It hasn’t taken her long to purchase her own and better yet even her boyfriend is hooked on Courgetti!


4 courgettes

For the Pesto

30 grams coriander

1 avocado

2 limes

1 lemon

handful of nuts (brazil/pine/pecan nuts)

2 cloves garlic

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoons coconut oil

1 teaspoon tahini

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Choice of toppings:

sun-dried tomatoes

kalamata olives

pumpkin seeds

red pepper

Spiralise the courgettes and lightly fry in coconut oil to soften and warm up the vegetables. This is not essential, you can leave the courgettes raw for a cold, crunchier dish.
Blend the pesto ingredients until thick and smooth. Mix the pesto into the courgetti and add your choice of toppings.
