  • 500g ground pork
  • 1 medium courgette (zucchini)
  • 1 inch fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste) of chipotle chilli paste, or ground chilli
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • Courgette for noodles (about 1 per person)
  • Using the shredder attachment on your food processor, stick the peeled ginger piece in followed by the courgette. Empty this onto a couple of paper towels and squeeze the water out – as much as possible!
  • Mix this with the pork and spices and form into meatballs. I made 15. Put these in the fridge while you prepare the courghetti.
  • When you spiralize the courgette, it’s a good idea to stick it all in a colander with some salt and a weight on top (a heavy tin of something) to let as much water as possible drain out.
  • Cook the meatballs in a skillet with a touch of oil. Seriously – just a touch so they don’t stick!
  • Set the meatballs aside (or use another skillet) and stir fry the courgette noodles. Add a drop of tamari sauce if desired.
