CONVERTED TO COURGETTI
Monday, 16 November 2015
I refused to get into the whole 'courgetti' craze. IT'S NOT PASTA! But it turns out that if you actually use a spiralizer - I had been making strands using a julienne peeler - then it's still not pasta...but it's not disappointing either. My main bug bear with courgette noodles was that I just didn't want to invest in a spiralizer; they are clunky and expensive and for such a big gadget, they only do one thing. I recently discovered the OXO Good Grips Hand Held Spiralizer on Instagram and I ordered one straight away and I'm an instant convert!
This thing is small enough to pop away in the cutlery drawer, super-easy to use and you get the same exact results as with one of the larger versions. So really, this post isn't a recipe at all, but a big, lovey-dovey shoutout to my new favourite kitchen gadget. Courgettes are perfect as they hold their own in soups and sauces, but here I've simply served my courgetti with a squeeze of lime, plenty of fresh chilli and a thick slab of fried halloumi.
