Vegan courgette spaghetti
gluten free
lactose free

This is a quick and hearty dish for when you have a really busy day and you want to throw something together that fulfills your cravings without feeling ‘guilty’ afterwards that you’ve chosen the wrong food, courgette ‘pasta’ is the secret. It’s basically courgette in ‘spaghetti’ strings, without the carbs and the heavy feeling afterwards.

I just looked what I had in my fridge and started throwing things together and it was so delicious that I’m going to keep this recipe. If you don’t have courgette spaghetti, you can replace it with normal pasta, just don’t forget to adjust your kcal count if you’re counting.

In Spain, Mercadona is selling them in the fresh vegetable aisles.
