Thai Style Prawn Courgette Noodles GF Low Carb

I am a little bit addicted to courgette at the moment in replace of pasta or noodles. It’s just so tasty and healthy and has become a favourite of my Aunt and Uncle. This recipe is like a pad Thai noodle, it has the prawns the nuts and the flavourings but carb free and gluten-free!! Low fat too…………

Now add in the honey, soy, fish sauce and sesame oil. Let this all cook for a few minutes.

While this is cooking steam your courgette and carrot in a steamer, only for 3/4 minutes you need this to still have a bite. (you can pop this in a microwave with a sprinkle of water for 2 minutes)

Now add this into the wok with the veg and stir carefully. Squeeze in the lime juice and add in the prawns to warm through and the coriander. Turn the heat off and cover for the prawns to heat.
