Vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with Homemade Tomato Sauce (without Spiral Slicer)

Try out this healthy, low-calorie & gluten-free vegan Zucchini Spaghetti with homemade Tomato Sauce WITHOUT using a Spiral Slicer.

A Spiral Slicer is something we don’t all have in our kitchens, especially if you have no money like me and own zero kitchen utensils/ products – you just use what your housemates have. (I know, “omg the food blogger and recipe developer has no kitchen things” I’m just proving to you that ANYONE can cook delicious and healthy food, with literally nothing). So I decided I’d try and mimic what the spiral slicer does, just by using a sharp knife.

Also like many of you will experience, I have realised I have a small issue with gluten, so pasta dishes are now a little difficult for my little belly to handle. I was fine with gluten until one day, bam… My belly was the size of the moon. Major bloating is never fun, so I thought, I’m going to try zucchini pasta!

Egg-Free, Gluten-Free Pork Rissoles & Veg

Try my hearty, egg-free, gluten-free pork rissoles and colourful vegetables for dinner tonight! Ideal for those following a gluten-free or egg-free diet.

As a child, I remember watching my mum and dad making rissoles with bread crumbs or tiny pieces of fresh bread. This helps the rissole stay together (along with the one or two eggs added to the mixture) so when I first moved out of home, this is how I made mine too.

One day, however, I had mince, tomatoes, carrots and onions in the fridge but no bread or eggs in my kitchen. So I decided to experiment and see if rissoles could be made without eggs or bread. It turns out they can. They do fall apart if you turn them too quickly, but as long as they’re browned on one side before turning, the cooking process will hold it together.
