Courgetti Pesto

Another super simple, super delicious and super nutritious recipe that screams eat me now. Why wouldn’t you give it a try?

I really recommend making my cashew pesto for this recipe, its so delicious and so easy to make.

If you do make my pesto for this, the ingredients in the recipe will make a little more than what’s needed for the salad, so I’ve been busy creating lots of other pesto recipes this week that you can use the leftovers with (it keeps in the fridge for up to 7 days):

Beetroot noodles, feta and pesto
Smashed potatoes with pesto
Beetroot pesto pizza
Cauliflower pesto pizza
Mango & melon salad

Basil has sooooo many health benefits, including; stress release (needed this week), clearing the skin, combatting PMS and detoxifying the liver.

If you do make any of my recipes, please tag me in your posts on Instagram I’d love to see your creations and use the hashtags #staceyhogan #happyandhealthy

Stacey Hogan Courgette noodles and pesto

Ingredients (serves 1):

1 courgette/zucchini
30g pesto
10g cashews, chopped
7 olives
1/4 avocado

Method:

  1. Spiralize the courgette/zucchini (or buy ready made courgette noodles).
  2. Mix the noodles with pesto (I really recommend making my homemade pesto for this recipe).
  3. Peel the avocado, and mash (place the remaining 3/4 of the avocado in an airtight container and add lemon to keep it from browning, store in the fridge).
  4. Plate up the noodles, add the mashed avo on top and sprinkle with the olives and chopped cashews.
