Piri piri zucchini and patti pan squash

Time of year for fresh squashes from the local farmers.  Here's another way to enjoy them.

  • 1 patti pan squash diced roughly
  • 1 zucchini diced roughly
  • 1 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 teaspoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon ghee
  • Piri piri spice to flavor
  • Lemon peel powder to flavor
  • Four corner salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of rice, teff, quinoa, noodles, or zoodles.

  • Melt ghee
  • Add the coconut flour and cook the flour on medium for 1-2 minutes to brown. 
  • Add coconut milk and spices and cook for 5 minutes on medium while stirring occasionally.  Sauce should start thickening at this point. 
  • Add squashes and cook for 5 min on high.  
  • Pour over rice, teff, quinoa, noodles, or zoodles. If you choose zoodles (zucchini noodles), then replace zucchini in main recipe with another squash or additional patti pan. 
Serves two people.
