Spiralised courgettes

I know that everyone in the world has already done spiralised courgettes and, in fact, this is now a staple that I should have been using ages ago.  A bit like stuffed pasta used to be in the nineties.

I’ve got a bit concerned that my children don’t eat enough vegetables.  They eat a lot of white pasta, fish fingers and pizza.  And fruit.  And breakfast cereal.  It’s started to irritate me.

One courgette makes a whole bowl of spiralised courgette ribbons.  I then fried it in butter in the wok for three minutes – as mentioned by Esther Walker in her old blog.

If you are a rational, kind person, you will eat the spiralised courgettes (as they are actually quite delicious).  If, however, you are one of my children, you will howl when you see that you have been presented with a small amount of an unfamiliar green food substance.
