Courgette Chips

Courgette chips

I found a bag of courgettes from the fridge that needed using. With a little help from my friend Google, I decided to try this recipe by Nadia Lim. This was pretty easy and very yummy.

  • 500g courgettes
  • 250ml almond meal
  • 250ml finely grated cheese. The original recipe uses parmesan, but I sed mature cheddar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp oregano, rosemary, thyme, sage or whatever herbs you have and like
  • Salt

Cut the courgettes to sticks. Beat the egg in one bowl, mix all the dry ingredients in another bowl.

Cover courgette sticks in egg, then coat them in the cheesy mixture.

Place on baking tray an bake for 15-20 in 200C until golden brown and crispy.

Did I mention they are yummy?

Cashew Cheese


Ok if you actually eat cheese, this doesn’t really taste like cheese but I love this stuff. I use it as a spread on toast and crackers or as a sauce on just about everything.

The special ingredient here is nutritional yeast. It’s used in vegan food to add that “cheesy” flavour to food and yeah it kinda does. You can get it from large supermarkets pretty easily but you can leave it out if you like. I do think that it adds that special something to the recipe though.

The recipe is from Deliciously Ella.

Ingredients:

  • 250ml of cashew nuts
  • 100ml of water
  • 70ml of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp of nutritional yeast
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt + pepper

Put all ingredients in a blender and whizz into a sauce.
