It’s the joy of an English summer! When it finally does heat up all you want to do it sit outside and soak up the beautiful rays. To help you spend less time in the kitchen and more time outside, we’ve collated 5 simple summer recipes that are quick, healthy, and perfect for a hot day.
Asian Summer Noodles
All you’ll need for this low-carb dish is our Slim Spaghetti
, some fresh veggies (we recommend carrots, zucchinis, peppers, and and onion), soy sauce, ginger, and a handful of peanuts. Start by pan-frying your veggies. Whilst cooking, splash soy sauce into the mix and then mince the ginger and add that when the veggies are nearly done. Finally, mix in your Slim Spaghetti and cook for 1 minute. Crush the peanuts and pop on top. Add cilantro if you fancy and you’ve got a simple summer meal.
