I've often thought I should write a book called '101 ways with a courgette'. Our single plant has been in overdrive this summer with all the lovely weather we've had. Although, courgettes seem to do their thing in abundance no matter how rainy or sunny it gets. Not that I mind as I love them but Chickpea has done her usual theatrical sighing every time one enters the house.
The first few are a novelty but it can then become difficult thinking of different ways to use them. In case you too are struggling to come up with ever more inventive ways to cook your courgettes, here's a few of the ways we've enjoyed our harvest this year.
Fried with rosemary and garlic to accompany lamb chops, houmous and green pepper (an odd choice I know but I just happened to have one which needed using up).
With chicken, sundried tomatoes and pasta.
With griddled halloumi, asparagus and salad leaves.
Halloumi again but this time with giant couscous and roasted vegetables.
Sausage, tomato and pasta.
And last but definitely not least, Green Thai prawn curry.
