Courgette Noodles with Pesto & Tomato

This  simple dish is great for a quick healthy lunch. You can add feta cheese, seeds, nuts, chickpeas, marinated tofu, hard boiled egg, chicken breast or turkey to make it more substantial.  It would make a great portable lunch (although it’s best eaten fresh if you are particular about your noodles staying crunchy!)

Cauliflower chicken alfredo with courgette noodles Penny Crowther Nutritionist London

Cauliflower Chicken Alfredo with Courgette Noodles

This is an unusual twist on alfredo sauce which pasta lovers will know is traditionally made with cream and cheese.  I tried this out on my other half who is not a health conscious nutritionist and he really liked it!

One of the ingredients is nutritional yeast, which has become a staple in my food cupboard.  I mentioned it in my last newsletter. It’s a very healthy vegan food which has a natural cheesy flavour. It’s much lower in calories than proper cheese but contains pure ingredients unlike some other so called vegan “cheeses”.   If you can handle the extra calories, by all means add a handful of real cheese into this recipe as well!
