Nutritious Zucchini Recipes

Raw pasta zuccini

 Zucchinis are in season!
Apart from being really tasty they are also packed full of nutrients like Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Folate and Potassium and they are mega low in calories.

Zucchinis are super delicious both raw and cooked.
Below are 2 recipes that I’m using at the moment.

The first one is a Raw Pasta recipe from Natasha Corrett’s great cookbook Honestly Healthy and the other is my fave Zucchini Fritters recipe.
Enjoy!

Corrett’s Raw Courgette Spaghetti is beyond quick to make and  it’s really fresh and zingy. 

Ingredients
2 Courgettes slicked thinly on a Mandolin or a spiraliser
1 mango
20 Mint leaves
5 tbsp. Olive Oil
Lime juice
1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin
Piece of fresh root ginger
Red Chilli (I sometimes skip this as the kids get traumatised :))
Salt and pepper

Directions
Slice the courgette thinly (I used my small handheld mandolin on the thinnest setting)
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Assemble and tuck in!

  1. Have to comment as so delicious sounding. Sooooo love courgettes (British English please :-)) I usually simply slice & griddle (now in coconut oil) & lemon juice. But these alternatives will be tested over the weekend. & as my eyes are forensically trained; it’s parsley & mint or dill & mint ? Guess either works…. Being bad at work today as tons of birthday sweets & treats about. Very. Naughty. Question. (Boring, sorry) Decaf instant coffee… it’s ok or not recommended? At home drinking the de-caf barley type version from H&B which hope is ok, but the instant clipper type decaf was pretty good flavour. Anyway. Vino. Negozio Classica. Quando? w/c 19th…? 22nd/23rd? Possible for you? Baci. & have a lovely weekend. X Date: Thu, 8 May 2014 11:35:21 +0000 To: jessicastar@hotmail.com

    1. Hi Jessica<
      Yes parsley and mint!!
      If you drink coffee make sure it's organic as coffee beans are heavily sprayed with toxins and if you drink de- caff make sure a non chemical based method has been used otherwise you get even more toxins. X
