Courgette Spaghetti with Avocado Pesto

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 30 minutes

INGREDIENTS

Avocado Pesto

• 1 avocado
• 50g brazil nuts

• Juice of 1 lime
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• salt and pepper

Spaguetti

• 2 courgettes

1) Prepare the courgette spaguetti by simple putting the courgettes through the spiralizer. Gently heat them in a frying pan with the olive oil for about 5 minutes until they are soft.

3) Mix the spaguettis and pesto in a bowl and serve.

AVOCADO PROPERTIES

The health benefits of avocado include weight management, protection from cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, treating osteoarthritis and enhancing the absorption of nutrients for the body. Avocado helps in keeping eyes healthy and protecting the skin from signs of aging and the harmful effects of UV rays. It also helps in maintaining blood sugar levels and has antioxidant properties.

Why courgettes?

Courgettes contain very few calories and have a high water content, which makes them a dieter’s friend. They aren’t a powerhouse of micronutrients, but they do provide useful amounts of immune system-boosting vitamin C, and significant levels of potassium, which is key to controlling blood pressure.
