Zucchini Noodles With Curry Veggies & Yogurt Dip

One thing I expect when suffering the pain it causes not being allowed to drink coffee and eat baguettes with silly amounts of truffle brie, is having an un-bloated stomach. My stomach today is humongous. Preggie size seven, approximately. I am wondering if this is due to the cheese intake of the last week (once I start with the parmesan I just can't stop) or with the amazing coconut water that I have discovered? In any case, it is tremendously vexing. I mean, who eats zucchini noodles for lunch? Who is this healthy person living in my house?

1 zucchini
1 red onion
1 fennel
2 tomatoes
a few asparagus
a handful spinach leaves
fresh coriander leaves
2 cloves of garlic
2 cm piece of ginger

garam masala
curry powder

organic greek yoghurt
rocket salad

To reinvent the same old stir fry: grate the zucchini into little noodles. If it looks different, it tastes different.
Chop up the garlic, onion and ginger and fry them in olive oil for a few minutes. Chop the rest of the veggies and put in the frying pan with the onion. Add the spices, about a small half teaspoon of all three. Fry until almost ready, then add the zucchini noodles. Fry for another minute, then put in the chopped spinach leaves and the coriander. Pour over some water and let simmer for another few minutes.

Yogurt Dip: put as much yogurt as you want to eat in a bowl with a handful of rocket salad and some finely chopped ginger and a hint of salt. Mix by hand or hand mixer. Pour over the zucchini noodles.

Throw a pinch of seeds on the top of it all (black and white sesame seeds, poppy seeds...). This is really good. I was surprised myself. Zucchini Noodles. Hmm.
