Vegan Courgette Stacks

This week I have been mostly experimenting with a clean eating vegan diet.

I’m vegetarian as it is, so although not a huge adjustment, I did face a few difficulties, particularly at breakfast time. But as they say, necessity is the mother of invention & so I came up with this tasty dish. Let me introduce you to my world-famous (ok that’s a slight exaggeration!) Courgette Stacks! They are gluten, dairy & sugar-free, and to be honest would work just as well on the lunch or dinner  table. These got quite the reaction on Instagram & Facebook and I promised to share the recipe. So here goes……

Vegan Courgette Stacks

You will need:

  • 1 courgette
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 1/2 an avocado
  • 1/2 spring onion
  • 1 small clove of garlic crushed
  • Juice of 1/4 of a lemon
  • 1/4 tsp chilli flakes
  • pinch of Himalayan rock salt & cracked black pepper
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • A few torn basil leaves


  • Thinly slice the courgette lengthways & also thinly slice the tomatoes & mushrooms
  • Put all of these under the grill & turn the courgette slices when they start to brown
  •  In the meantime prepare the avocado, by mixing all the other ingredients together (except the basil & olive oil)
  • Assemble your stacks as follows; slice of courgette, avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, basil and repeat.
  • Put the stacks back under the grill just to heat through
  • Finish with a final layer of avocado & a drizzle of olive oil
  • Sit down, relax, chew & enjoy!
