One-Pot Zucchini Spaghetti

January 8, 2017 0 comments

Zucchini, sometimes known as courgette, are a delicious and versatile vegetable. Vegetable spaghetti is something I have featured in the past on the blog with this recipe which uses a type of squash. Using vegetables in place of other complex carbohydrates, like pasta and bread, is becoming quite common. Some may say a passing fad or trend. But the ease of using vegetables for spaghetti, or cauliflower for pizza bases, helps one get more vegetables into their diet in a quick and easy way. It also removes any decisions that need to be made around purchasing processed foods.

Here I have a one-pot recipe for some delicious zucchini spaghetti that serves one. To cater for more, just double or triple the ingredients for 2-3 people. Very simple!

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried chilli
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano
  • Olives, a handful of your choice
  • Salt and Pepper
To garnish:
  • Parmesan Cheese, grated
  • Basil leaves
Instructions:
  1. Grate zucchini and squeeze out excess water in a colander
  2. Heat olive oil in a fry pan and add the garlic and stir well
  3. Add the grated zucchini to mix in with the garlic and oil until the zucchini just softens
  4. Add chilli, oregano and olives, then some salt and pepper to taste
  5. When zucchini has softened and all the herbs are mixed through, transfer into a serving bowl and top with parmesan cheese and basil

Enjoy!
