If there is one ingredient that tends to be abundant in summer, it’s the courgette – long, round, yellow, green, petite or if left alone… enormous!
Of course, typically we can cook it in a ratatouille or fry slices of it alone or add long slivers of it to the BBQ (preferably marinated with some olive oil, lemon juice herbs and garlic) or even grate it to make a last minute salad with a few nuts, some avocado cubes and a little dressing.
But we can also choose to be a little cheekier and add it to unexpected savoury or even sweet recipes. Wow!
Fun fritters / pancakes
In their savoury version, my small courgette fritters will the fun side dish to a nice piece of fish for instance. Make it bigger to cover the whole frying pan and you have a funky pancake which you can use like a tortilla and fill with some spicy fried vegetables and then roll it like a big cigar before devouring. The kind of TGIF recipe I love to celebrate the arrival of the weekend!
I often leave a little of the batter behind and turn it into some small dessert pancakes (green coloured!) drizzled with a little maple or yacon syrup. A perfect end to the dinner to left to enjoy for brunch on a Sunday! My recipe and my tips are right here.
These are actually spiralised courgettes. You don’t have a spiruliser? No problem. You can use your regular vegetable peeler and make tagliatelle-like ribbons. It always amazes me how changing the presentation of a food or dish makes such a difference and excites tastebuds differently.
Here is the recipe of my courgette spaghetti with pesto. You can eat it cold or lightly warmed up.
Surprising courgette desserts
Who would have known a few years back that we would add courgettes to our sweets?
Here they are hidden in soft and spongy gluten free banana courgette muffins. Make those with children!
And here you’ll find it in pieces in my courgette pistachio & lime cake.
Do you want to get to the root cause of your health problems and find freedom?
I hope you get to try and enjoy some of these recipes! Send me a picture via Instagram or Facebook if you do – it really fills me with joy to see your creations : )
Meantime, if in September you’d like to free yourself of some body and mind issues that have been holding you back, my programs may be able to help you. They are unique in the sense that we work both the emotional (with RTT™ hypnotherapy) and the physical (with nutritional rebalancing).
For example, it’s been 7 weeks without sugar craving for N even when she has had to give chocolate gifts to others!
Here is what she says: “I don’t even fancy it”, I don’t even feel pulled. And that fills me with hope and trust in the future. I don’t feel bloated like before, the shape of my body is changing – especially the top of my tummy and the lower part of my bum. That gives me so much oomph! Emotionally I feel less submissive and like I’ve started to take the bull by the horns more”.
It’s my passion, my life’s work to help you heal your body symptoms and help you find that beautiful freedom within you.
So, if you’ve tried “everything” and are wanting to find freedom, book a free discovery session (spots available from September) and I will explain my holistic coaching and RTT ™ combined approach to help you get free of your symptoms.
To your feeling and looking amazing naturally this summer!
