Baby marrows, like cauliflower, have been given a new lease of life with the Banting eating plan. No need to buy the expensive ‘spaghetti’ cut vegetables. Grating coarsely does the trick.

Basil Pesto, Vegetable Spice

You will need

350 g – 400 g punnet courgettes, coarsely grated
olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
Ina Paarman’s Vegetable Spice
2 cloves garlic, cut into fine slivers (optional)
1 T (15 ml) Ina Paarman’s Basil Pesto


Sauté the onion, pre-seasoned with Vegetable Spice, very slowly in the olive oil under a blanket of baking paper. Add the garlic once onions are soft and aromatic. This can be done in advance.

Before serving: turn up the heat, add the grated courgettes and briefly stir-fry until crisp-tender. Add Basil Pesto and taste for seasoning.
