Courgette Noodles/Zoodles

The easiest way to enjoy courgette noodles.
Courgette Noodles

American zucchini meet English courgette. Zoodles meet err… coodles? Yeah I know! That’s why they get called courgette noodles instead.

I tried this recipe during the zoodle craze. The first time I didn’t have a spiraliser and dutifully set about wielding my potato peeler with great gusto on the first courgette. Half-way through the gusto had deflated and I ground on with grim determination till two courgettes were en-ribboned. It was just too much time and hard work! Along came the spiraliser, so much easier!

Initially I used to fry them in fat but they would wilt to about a quarter of their size on the hob and I found I needed so many of them. I began microwaving them instead and found not only did I end up with more it was easier, faster and tasted better too.
