Low Carb Tomato Basil Courgetti

Pulsin

Low carb tomato basil courgetti

This dish is not only healthy, but easy to make and with a delicious balance of flavours; with saltiness from the olives contrasting with the sweetness of the sauce and fragrance of the basil.

Ingredients

  1. 350g sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  2. 40g goji berries
  3. 2 tbsp Pulsin Soya Protein Powder (you can substitute for pea protein powder as an alternative)
  4. 2-3 tbsp water
  5. 4 tbsp lemon juice
  6. 2 plump garlic cloves, crushed
  7. Salt and pepper
  8. 3 large courgettes
  9. 90g sundried tomatoes, drained
  10. 2 tbsp olive oil
  11. 5 tbsp nutritional yeast
  12. 1 tbsp tamari or soya sauce
  13. 28g fresh basil leaves
  14. To decorate: basil leaves, slices of sundried tomato and a handful of black olives

Method

 

  • Soak the cashews and goji berries in a small bowl of water for 2-3hrs to soften them. Then drain
