Pan fried sweet potato courgettie
Love your pasta but don’t love what it does to your tummy?
Then here is a great alternative “COURGETTIE” full of VIT A,B,C & E, potassium, phosphorus and copper . All good for bone and teeth formation and helping your kidneys function WELL!
The anti oxidants Vit C and Beta Carotene also have anti-inflammatory properties that make them helpful for conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. where inflammation plays a big role.
The copper found in courgettes is helpful for reducing the painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
I also love using it as an alternative to wheat which is an inflammatory market for many people and stops them releasing belly fat!
So enough about the science – how do you make it?
Ingredients for 2:
1 large tablespoon coconut oil
1-2 garlic cloves finely chopped (or frozen – sorry I like the convenience)
Finely chopped ginger (or frozen – sorry I still like the convenience 😉 )
1 small sweet potato peeled and finely diced
2 large courgettes – spiralized (and guess what you can buy a spiralizer through my amazon shop!)
1 tbsp. pumpkin seeds (optional)
Bringing it all together:
Gently melt coconut oil in pan of choice
Add your onions and gently sauté for 3 minutes and then add garlic and ginger – leave for another 3 minutes.
Add the finely diced sweet potato, pumpkin seeds (if adding) and turmeric stir and cover for 5 minutes to soften
Add your courgettie stir through and gently cook for another 5 minutes, stirring through and serve!
