CREAMY MUSHROOM ZUCCHETTI (ZUCCHINI PASTA)
Serves 2 hungry people, or 4 as a lighter meal
GF : DF : SF : VEGAN
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 large spanish onion, peeled and diced
6 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced thin
500g exotic mixed mushrooms, brushed clean and torn or sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
6 medium zucchini, spiralised or ribboned+
150ml So Good Coconut Milk
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
Opt: 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast++, chilli flakes
Garnish: fresh micro herbs (optional)
sea salt and black pepper
Place a large fry pan on medium heat, add olive oil, onion and garlic and cook until fragrant and translucent in colour. Add mushrooms, oregano and a good pinch of sea salt and pepper and cook for 10 minutes, turning frequently. Whilst the mushrooms are cooking turn the zucchini through a spiraliser or use a vegetable peeler to create thicker ribbons. Once the mushrooms are cooked, add So Good Coconut Milk and simmer for approximately 3 minutes. After this time, add zucchini noodles or ‘zucchetti’, increase the heat to high and cook, tossing frequently for 2-3 minutes. You don’t want to over cook the zucchini as it softens quickly. Remove from heat, sprinkle with nutritional yeast and chilli flakes and toss again (these are optional additions). Swirl the noodles and mushrooms into bowls, top with finely chopped parsley and serve.
+ If you are serving 4 as a light starter, increase the zucchini to 8.
++ Nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast, a rich source of B vitamins and cheesy in flavour. You can find it at health food stores. Parmesan or pecorino are optional alternatives.
