I recently purchased a mini spiralizer so I could make zucchini pasta. This dish is so fun and quick to make and is actually very satisfying.

INGREDIENTS

3-4 Zucchini

2 tbsp Olive Oil

2-3 Minced Garlic Cloves

1/2 Onion – minced

4 cups Baby Spinach

1/4 cup Parmesan or Gruyere Cheese – grated

1/2 tsp Sea Salt

1/4 tsp Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

Spiralize the zucchini into a large bowl and then set aside. In a large skillet heat olive oil with onions and garlic. Sauté for 2 -3 minutes on medium heat. Add the zucchini noodles and spinach and mix until spinach starts to wilt. Add parmesan or gruyere cheese with salt and pepper. Toss and serve. Enjoy!

i am always trying to find ways to add extra fibre to my diet. I was so excited to find this recipe from weelicous which uses spinach in the pancake batter. How simple of a concept and you really don’t taste the spinach at all! I changed the buttermilk to unsweetened almond milk with lemon juice.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup of fresh baby spinach

1 cup milk – unsweetened almond or organic milk with 1 tsp lemon juice

1 large organic egg

1 tbsp safflower oil

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 tbsp cane sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp sea salt

DIRECTIONS

Using a hand blender mix the spinach, milk with lemon juice, egg and oil together. In a separate bowl mix whole wheat flour, cane sugar, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt together.Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until smooth. Lightly spray a  frying pan on medium heat. Pour about a 1/4 cup of batter onto frying pan. When the pancake batter starts to bubble flip onto other side for about 1 minute and then place onto a plate. Add some fresh fruit to the pancakes with some pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
