Cheesy Chorizo Courgette Bites

Cheesy chorizo courgette bites

These cheesy chorizo courgette bites are veg packed, low carb and are perfect for a low carb breakfast or low carb packed lunch option.  The main source of carbs are the courgette in this recipe at 6g carbs per medium courgette but check the carb count on the chorizo as this is a potential source of hidden carbs (mine had 2g/100g carbs)

I make a batch of these in advance and store n tupperware in the fridge so I can grab a quick lunch with a handful of rocket.
