Satay courgetti

I know peanut butter sounds odd to pair with courgetti stir fry, but trust me on this one. The combination of peanuts with soy, garlic, ginger, chilli and lime is awesome. It’s basically a low carb, low sugar satay sauce alternative.

Spiralise the zucchini (courgette) and grate the carrots. Peel and finely slice the red onion, peel and crush the garlic, and peel and finely grate the ginger. Mix the peanut butter, soy sauce, juice of half the lime, chilli and coconut sugar or honey together. Roughly chop the coriander and set aside.

Heat a large pan or wok over medium heat with a splash of sesame oil. Add the courgettes and carrot. Cook until softened for about 5 minutes. Remove from the pan.

Add another small splash of sesame oil and add the onions, cooking for a couple of minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for another minute. Add the mix of peanut butter, soy sauce, chilli, lime juice and coconut sugar and mix together with the onion, garlic and ginger. Return the zucchini and carrots to the pan. Any liquid from the zucchini is fine to add in as it will help to loosen up the sauce which will be quite thick. Stir in and heat through. Taste for flavour and adjust as needed. Serve immediately with some fresh coriander and a wedge of the remaining lime.
