In contrast to most of the foodie population, courgette is something I had not taken a liking to. Not sure why? As a previous fussy eater, some bad habits still lingered and this inoffensive vegetable had become judged. Lo siento.
But, after buying a handheld spiraliser I decided to let go of my courgette fears and get creative. This salad was born and I became OBSESSED with it, ate one everyday! The spiralised veg provided a lot of volume, so aside from it being tasty, filling and healthy, it was cost effective too!
Naturally, I needed to share the recipe with you:
SPIRALISED VEGGIE SALAD W/ PEANUT SAUCE
1 Cup Edamame Beans
1/2 (Chopped) Spring Onion
2 Tbsp Toasted Sesame Seeds
2 Tbsp Tamari or Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Rice or Cider Vinegar
1/2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 Tbsp Agave or Honey
2 (Heaped) Tbsp Peanut Butter (approx 40g)
(I used Pip & Nut because its super runny and perfect for this).
Note: You will also need a spiraliser.
1. Cut off the ends of the carrot + courgette and spiralise into a large bowl.
2. Toss edamame beans, spring onions and 1 tbsp of toasted sesame into bowl and roughly mix with spiralised veg. Set aside.
3. In a bowl, add all peanut sauce ingredients and slowly whisk together until combined.
4. Pour over salad base and toss with the remaining tbsp of toasted sesame seeds.

DON’T FANCY A SALAD? THIS PEANUT SAUCE IS A DREAM TO MAKE A TOFU OR CHICKEN SATAY, OR MAYBE JUST GIVE RICE OR NOODLE DISHES SOME FLAVOUR WITH ITS PEANUT BUTTERY GOODNESS.
