This is more of a concept than a recipe: courgette noodles. I love my spiralizer! It’s a fab machine that turns any vegetable into noodles using a turning handle and a clever grater!
You could get a similar effect by using a vegetable peeler and slicing the pieces into long strips. Anyway, dress with ANYTHING (soy and chilli, lemon and garlic, ‘cheese’ sauce) and you’re good to go. Keep them raw for a bit of bite or fry in a wok for a softer noodle.

Spiralize the courgette.
Fry the garlic and chilli in a little oil and add the courgette.
As the courgette starts to lose water, add the tomato, nutritional yeast, gram flour and salt. Let this form a sauce with the liquid from the courgette.
Serve! Add some breadcrumbs for extra texture.
