Tomatoes with Courgetti / Zucchini


Thanks to Jackie at The Vegan Diet for posting this great recipe from DetoxYourWorld

Serves 4.

12 ripe juicy tomatoes
1 cup of fresh basil
4 cloves of garlic
4 large courgettes (zucchinis)
4 tbsps extra virgin olive oil

I like to use large courgettes for this, as they tend to be drier. Chop the tomatoes into bite sized pieces, and place in a strainer. Finely chop the garlic and basil, and set aside. If your courgettes aren’t organic, peel the skin, but if they are organic, leave the skin on. With a spiral slicer, spiralise the courgettes, using the spaghetti setting. Place the spiralised courgettes on a paper towel to absorb any moisture. Place the courgetti into a bowl and mix with the olive oil and a little of the chopped garlic. Put equal amounts of the strained tomatoes in the centre of each plate. Top with equal amounts of basil, then top with equal amounts of garlic. Spread equal amounts of the courgetti around the plate.
