      Dressing is olive,oil white wine vinegar, wholegrain mustard and chopped mint.
      Grate or spiralize, carrots and courgettes
      thinly sliced onion
      and a tin of chick peas or beans.

      nice as a side salad or in wraps.

        There is a strange duplicate of this thread which won't disappear from my feed of newest threads. I wouldn't mind but I hate courgettes!
        Nestled somewhere in the Cambridgeshire Fens. Good soil, strong winds!
        Always aim for the best result possible not the best possible result

          Thin strips of courgette (lengthways) made with a potato peeler or mandolin.
          Griddle them so they are lightly cooked and have those lovely sear stripes.
          Dunk in lemon juice while still warm.
          Layer in a clean jar, cover in olive oil.
          Stores in the fridge for a while - not sure how long, always gets gobbled up pretty quick here.

          Eat on toasted sourdough, sprinkled with flaky salt.

          Just amazing.

            It’s been flagged with admin so it should be sorted out soon.

              I second chocolate cake (or muffins), lemon crunch cake (David Lebovitz), gnome cakes (River Cottage), (sandwich) bread, orange & rosemary zucchini bread (loaf cake), fritters (Deb Perelman), minestrone soup - lots on the interwebby (Try searching for zucchini, too). I also shred some, measured for specific recipes, and freeze - not as good as fresh, but does in a pinch!

              You can PM me if you want a specific recipe I picked another 13 last night... Good luck!

                You can freeze them and then eat in winter. It's a good idea to make semimanufactures for soups or pure. I like BBQ but the oven ones are even better and healthier. Also, I think you can ask some of your neighbours, they could need it.

                  Grate one medium spud into a bowl, squeeze out the water, repeat with an onion and a courgette or two. Chuck in some gram flour and season with what you like and mix it all up, if it’s still very wet squeeze it out again. Form into fritters and fry in HOT oil. Very addictive.

                      Either the male flowers or batons of courgette dipped in Tempura batter.
                      Wonderful.

                      When I started having low carb food I sliced the courgette in place of lasagna strips .

                      Also - Long thin strips on the bbq with salt and lemon juice. Big dollops of yogurt on top to serve.
