What better way to get extra nutrients into your little one, avoiding grains and making a tasty dinner too?

I peel a mountain of zucchini, which doesn’t take as long as you’d think, then fry it until it goes nice and soft. We use coconut or macadamia oil on medium heat to fry as these oils can withstand heat without becoming carcinogenic.  Yummy things to go in this dish can be garlic, onion, capsicum, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, basil and then top it off with some fresh avocado and roasted/crushed nuts and seeds (hazelnuts and sunflower seeds were the latest).

To entice the kids in, I didn’t use the word ‘zucchini’ but played up ‘zoodles’ from the beginning.  And get them started by giving them a piece that doesn’t have any green skin on it, so they get hooked by the flavour!

Let me know what you put with your zoodles?
