Ingredients

serves 1

  • 1 Zucchini
  • 1 cup Blanched Brocolli
  • 1/2 cup Peas, boiled in salted water
  • Flat leaf parsley
  • Fresh Oregano
  • 1/2 Avocado

Prepare the veggies …

  1. Make Zucchini noodles using a noodle maker.
  2. Blanch the cut florets of Broccoli in hot water for 5 mins, and run under cold water and dry on kitchen paper.
  3. Boil the peas till just about done in salted water. Drain and run under cold water, dry on kitchen paper.
  4. Slice finely one half of an avocado and roll and place on the centre of the plate.
  5. Style as you please and garnish with fresh herbs.
  6. Drizzle with dressing.

Dressing

  • 7-8 large Basil leaves
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Cashews – a tight fistful
  • 1 clove of Garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp water

Blend all this together to make a smooth paste in a small grinder. This dressing is full on flavour and very creamy. The cashews somehow make a great substitute for cheese and the lime add a kick to the creamy dressing. The water basically aids the grinding, since its a small quantity, but it also makes it lighter. Drizzle generously over the salad and enjoy.
