As I learn more about the difference between vegetarian and vegan because of friends who follow those diets, I’m also curious to see what the flavour profiles are like of some vegan products. I know that I used to call it rabbit food which I guess isn’t very nice to say so I needed to change my way of looking at it and thinking of it. Enter stage right, Flora Plant BUTTER™ which I used to make this Chicken Zucchini bowl, so perfect for summer! And you can “vegan” it by leaving out the chicken completely.
With summer in full swing, we can’t do heavy meals right now so this hit the spot and my kids enjoyed it because it wasn’t bland vegetables!
They didn’t even realise it was healthy, I didn’t either. hahahahaha
Watch the reel here
Chicken Zoodle Bowl:
2 chicken fillets marinated in:
salt, pepper, crushed garlic and fresh ground green chilli
Add a blob of Flora Plant BUTTER to your pan and sear the chicken on medium-high for 3-4 minutes on each side. You want a nice golden brown char on each side. Set aside to rest.
In the same pan add:
2tblsp Flora PlantBUTTER™
1 onion sliced thinly
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
salt & pepper
Scrape any brown bits of the chicken when cooking so that it adds extra flavour.
1 bag of zoodles (zucchini noodles)
Zest and Juice of one lemon
Handful of chopped parsley
Handful of chopped cashew nuts
Toss for 3-4 minutes. You want your marrow to be cooked but not soggy. Turn off your stove and plate up immediately.
Add chopped mini tomatoes, chopped parsley, the sliced chicken on top and a squeeze of lemon
Try it, You’ll Love it!
