Imagine pasta has a sister. A glowing skinned, environmentally friendly, yoga practising, smoothie drinking, kale eating sister. Meet Courgetti, sexy spiralised curls of courgette made by Cucumbo from Monkey Business! Pasta’s super green, super healthy and super tasty sibling. The best part? It’s easy with Cucumbo! Designed to create spirals out of soft fruit and vegetables, Cucumbo is a great way to get creative in the kitchen.

Cucumbo Pesto Courgetti

Serves 2
You’ll need:
  • Cucumbo the wonder spiraliser!
  • Baking tray
  • Blender or food processor
  • Serving bowl
  • 4 x courgettes
  • 2 x chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 50g feta cheese

For the pesto:

  • 1 handful of cashew nuts
  • 1 handful of sunflower seeds
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 1 tsp of olive oil
  • Pinch of rock salt
  • Cracked black pepper

Place the chicken breasts on a baking tray, melt the coconut oil over a low heat and drizzle over the chicken breasts. Grill the chicken breasts on each side for 10-12 minutes or until cooked through. Using Cucumbo, spiralize the courgettes turning them into courgetti. If you want the appearance of spaghetti, use a knife to slice the Cucumbo’d courgettes into even thinner strips. Place the courgetti into a bowl and set aside for later. For the pesto, throw all of the ingredients into a blender. You could even decant your olive oil into Oil & Co pourer first but, then again, it’s not polite to make dinner guests feel bad about how cool you are. Blend until the ingredients give the appearance of a paste – you could do this by hand but you’ll probably be there until Christmas. Add the pesto and grilled chicken to the spiralized courgetti and mix together. Finally, crumble some feta cheese on top and enjoy!
