Lemony Courgette Spaghetti

You ready for 4000 ways to use courgettes now the season has started? 😂 For those who don’t know / grow, courgette plants can produce a new courgette every day or 2 in the height of summer, and if you blink they are the size of marrows, it’s crazy keeping up with picking them, let alone eating them all. Luckily we love them and this is one of our favourite ways to eat them… ⁣

Grate a couple of large courgettes, and fry with a splash of oil, 3 crushed cloves of garlic, the juice of a lemon and a good sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes, then stir in a cup of cream / creme fraiche (I use homemade cashew cream). (It’s also gorgeous with some extra oil instead of the cream and a pinch of chilli flakes)⁣.

Stir into cooked spaghetti and sprinkle with fresh herbs. Yummy! Do you have any inspiring courgette recipes for me? L x

Super Speedy Vegan Minestrone-Ish Soup

Super speedy #vegan minestrone ish soup for one hangry mama tonight, and a quick recipe that’s brilliant for the random veg left knocking about at the bottom of the fridge 😂 Does anyone else get ridiculously stroppy when they don’t eat enough? I’ve had a super busy day and realised I’ve barely eaten a thing plus been carrying and feeding Rory in the carrier pretty much the entire day so was totally knackered and starving. Needed something to fill me up and quick!

To make it I finely chop a load of veggies (I used onion, carrot, broccoli and spinach – beans are a nice addition too), fry for 5 mins then add some broken up spaghetti, a tin of tomatoes, enough boiling water to cover plus about 2 inches and a couple of tablespoons of veg stock powder. Cook for about 12 mins until the spaghetti is cooked and serve.
What are your favourite quick meals? L x #veganrecipe #veganblogger #foodblogger #familyfood #veganuk
