Courgette with veggies

by | Jun 30, 2016 | Recipes | 0 comments

I love having courgette spaghetti as an easy and wholesome option for lunch or dinner. So this time, I have tried with king prawns and veggies.

You will get different nutrients such as vitamin C from red bell peppers. Additionally you will boost your cardiovascular system as asparagus has a natural diuretic effect which can help to lower blood pressure, while garlic helps to thin the blood preventing clot formation.

I don’t have a spiralizer and I have been trying with peeler, but honestly I prefer buying organic courgette spaghetti. Keep some of them in your fridge for these rushing days and boost your intake of veggies.

* I bought the courgette spaghetti but you can make it by yourself using a julienne peeler or spiralizer. Cover the spaghetti with boiling water for 3 minutes and drain.
