    About this recipe: Transform courgettes into long strands that resemble spaghetti. Add a few tablespoons of pesto and a few chickpeas for a satisfying, low carb, gluten free, vegetarian dinner for 2!

    Serves: 2 

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 4 small courgettes, sliced into strands using a spiraliser
    • 120g chickpeas, drained and rinsed
    • 3 tablespoons pesto, or to taste
    • salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons grated Cheddar or Pecorino cheese, to taste

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; cook and stir courgetti until tender and liquid has evaporated, 5 to 10 minutes.
    2. Stir in chickpeas and pesto; lower heat to medium-low. Cook and stir until chickpeas are warm and courgetti is evenly coated, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
    3. Transfer mixture to serving bowls and top with grated cheese.


    If you do not have a spiraliser tool, cut courgettes lengthways using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn courgette over and continue 'peeling', discarding the seeds. Slice the courgette into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.
