  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt (I use Pink Himalayan)

Instructions

  1. (Skip step if pan-frying mushrooms) Preheat your oven to 200C/400F. Toss your mushrooms with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, salt & pepper. Place on a baking sheet and roast for 7-10mins.

  5. Bring sauce to a rolling boil. Once it reaches a rolling boil, turn down to a low heat and simmer for 10-15 mins*
  6. Once sauce has reached desired thickness, add in your mushrooms, salt & pepper to taste.
  7. In a frying pan, heat a tablespoon of oil. Add in your spiralized courgette and flash fry for 2-3min**

  8. Once done, serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

The longer you cook the sauce, the thicker it will become.
**You may choose to add your courgettes directly to your sauce to cook. Cook for 2-3mins and serve
