Minted Chilli, Ginger, Peanut and Lime Coodles with Fennel, Toasted Buckwheat and Avocado

Coodles, coodles, coodles.

“Wait – coodles? What the heck are ‘coodles’?”

Well, let me tell you. You’ve probably caught onto the craze of “zoodles” (if you haven’t, I’ll forgive you – zoodles are zucchini noodles. Spiralised zucchini that looks like noodles.)

So if zucchini + noodles = zoodles, then cucumber + noodles must equal coodles.

Oops, I just gave it away.

Coodles are cucumber noodles.

But you know why I just LOVE them so much?

  • They’re the most refreshing, summery thing that just screams “FRESH AND HEALTHY” right in your face
  • They’re super juicy and crunchy
  • They’ve got such a delicate flavour that can compliment whatever you use them with
  • They’re so quick and easy to whip up for lunch, dinner or a snack!

Plus these ones are teamed up with Asian flavours and avocado.
