 wizz up a handfull of Brazil nuts with 2 Avocado pears, using the fiercest blade in your armoury. Add juice of 1 lemon and water and olive oil to make a fine 'sort of' pesto

 This is how the courgettes should look

 Add courgettes and pesto to mushrooms

 Cook for a bit until courgettes are as 'al a dente' as you require and bon appetite!
