Serves: 4

  • 8 Zucchinis
  • 1 white onion
  • 1 bunch Basil
  • 2 sprigs Italian Parsley
  • 1 handful Sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 handful Goat Cheese
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons Chilli flakes
  • 2 teaspoons Cumin
  • Olive oil infused with garlic, herbs and chilli
  1. Peeling the Zucchinis: I used a regular potato peeler to make the zucchini ribbons (of course, other tools can be used to make zucchini noodles “zoodles” rather than ribbons). Since zucchinis release a lot of water while cooking, make sure to peel until you see the seeds starting to surface – we don’t want the core because the have higher water content compared to the rest of the vegetable. This is the most time-consuming step, but I assure you that the rest is just a matter of putting everything into one pan!
  2. Cooking the Zucchinis: I grilled about half the amount of zucchini ribbons to get those nice lines on the vegetable (this is optional). It adds a smokey flavor to the dish and also makes it look nicer! After they’re cooked, set them aside. While doing that, I caramelised the diced shallots and onions in another pan and added a bit of brown sugar along with the chilli-infused oil. Add the uncooked zucchini along with the herbs and spices, using tongs to carefully stir without breaking the ribbons.
  3. Topping it off: Finally, garnish the dish with sun-dried tomatoes and crumbled goat cheese.
