The Good Life Eatery’s Zucchini Fettuccine

Serves 4


1 tbsp coconut oil
300g tenderstem broccoli, trimmed
4-5 courgettes
2 tbsp olive oil
130g sundried tomatoes, roughly chopped
80g edamame beans, podded
100g goat’s cheese
50g roasted and salted almonds
salt and freshly ground black pepper

You will need a spiraliser or mandoline.


Heat a frying pan over a medium-high heat. When hot, add the coconut oil and allow it to melt. Add the broccoli and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Once you put the broccoli in the pan, don’t move the pan, to allow one side of the broccoli to char. Once slightly charred, continue to cook until it is still al dente (with a bit of a bite) and set aside.

Push the courgettes through a spiraliser to make noodles or use a mandoline on the “teeth” setting and put them into a large bowl. Add the oil and toss until the noodles are well coated. Add the sundried tomatoes with the charred broccoli, edamame beans, half of the goat’s cheese and half of the almonds and mix well. Transfer to a large serving bowl and garnish with the remaining goat’s cheese and roasted almonds.
