This week’s recipe is for those who are feeling virtuous and want to stay on the healthy eating bandwagon over the weekend.

These days, noodles can be made out of any vegetable that you have hanging around the house and here, we’ve combined courgette with some super tasty ingredients for a delish supper.

Using a spiralizer is the quickest way to prepare the zoodles but you could slice them by hand if needs be!

Step-7-4

Here’s what you’ll need…

2 courgettes

150g bacon pieces

Juice of one lime

Juice of half a lemon

Two avocados

Two cloves of garlic, crushed

Half of a red chilli

One tablespoon of coconut oil

A large handful of pine nuts

Here’s what you need to do…

Begin by spiralizing your courgettes to prepare your zoodles.

Step-1

Heat a small saucepan with half-tablespoon of coconut oil and fry off the bacon.

Once they’re thoroughly cooked, remove ’em from the pan and admire them in all their sizzling goodness.

Step-3_1

In a small bowl, mash the avocado (you’ll need one that isn’t rock hard) and combine with the garlic, chilli and lime juice. Reheat the pan and gently warm the avocado for 3-4 minutes.

Step-4_1

In another pan heat the remainder of the coconut oil. Sauté the courgettes for two to three minutes before adding the lemon juice, then continue to cook and remove from the heat when they’re all cooked up to your liking.

Toast the pine nuts in a small dry pan, and watch you don’t let them burn.

Plate up with the zoodles, pop the warm avocado on top with the bacon, sprinkle on the pine nuts, serve… and enjoy!
