This Courgetti with avocado sauce and poached egg recipe was the result of my new spiralizer arriving and my love of the classic breakfast/brunch favourite avocado and poached egg on toast.
If you don’t have a sprialiser I highly recommend getting one. They are affordable and let you make a whole host of delicious dishes as well as being very easy to use and clean. The perfect kitchen gadget!
Courgettes contain a high volume of water, fibre, vitamin C, beta-carotene and are low in calories so they are an ideal light cleansing food. Additionally, the manganese they contain helps the body metabolise protein and carbohydrates, digest fat and contributes to sex hormone production. While the anti-oxidant rich avocados are anti-inflammatory and fight free radical damage. If that wasn’t enough nourishment for you the egg (which is one of the few food sources of vitamin D) is an excellent source of quality protein. Making this dish a powerhouse of nourishment!
No spiralizer? Don’t worry. Just use a grater instead until you can afford the real machine, which you can purchase online here.
