Kitchen | Zoodles with spicy butter beans

All the summer clothes are in the stores and I have started planning my holiday wardrobe for my Santorini getaway and now is a great time to change any diet ruts you have got yourself into.

Me? I am giving up cake until further notice and focusing on eating yummy healthy colourful food.

I started doing a nutrition diploma course in March and it has really got me thinking about what I am eating and how I need to balance my diet with the right foods. 

I love vegetables so buying my new kitchen accessory was worth every penny. 

My new vegetable spiralizer is from Lakeland and is currently selling at the reduced price of £19.99 (usually £29.99). I had a pencil sharpener type for over a year now, but it's really hard to use and you are really limited on size of your vegetable and sometimes you accidentally lose a finger nail or two.

I am so happy with this it and it comes with 3 types of blade so you can have  thin, medium or wider ribbons depending on what you fancy or what suits the vegetable / meal best.

If you haven't used a spirializer before it is super easy. 

Select the slicer you think best suits your dish, I used the medium type for my zoodles /courgetti.

There is little waste, so just square off each end then secure it on the spiralize then just turn the handle..it's amazing how much you get from one courgette.

Once you have prepared your zoodles, heat up your non stick pan with either 1 a splash of oil or 2 sprays of fry light and cook for 2-3 minutes then serve straight away. 

I served mine with a piece of breaded chicken and some spicy butter beans 

Spicy butter beans (makes 2 portions)
1 tin of butter beans (only 29p at Lidl) 
1 tin of chopped tomatoes (only 38p at Lidl)
2 table spoons of fajita spice mix 
salt & pepper 
mixed dried herbs and heated up in a pan for 5 mins
