    Default Courgette recipes

    Hi everyone! I've just eaten my first courgette of the season and it looks likes I'm going to have loads to follow! Does anyone have any courgette recipes? Thanks! Bernie

    DDL I think there were loads of recipes on last year, but when you get fed up with everything else, try them
    SWEET and SOUR

    Sautee some finely chopped onion or shallot in butter along with your sliced courgette.
    Add a very little liquid - stock, white wine - and steam gently until just about cooked.
    Sprinkle over about a tablespoon sugar and let it dissolve over low heat.
    Splash over with vinegar. Stir in some herbs if you like.

    Very nice with ham or sausages. I find even adolescents who don't like vegetables like that one.

    From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs.

    You need that cookery book that deals with nothing but courgettes, it was a lifesaver for me last year. Managed to serve up courgettes in various guises for nearly every meal at one time, was determined not to waste a single one...

    Hang on - I'll just go and find it to give you the details

    Right here we are it's What Will I Do With All Those Courgettes by Elaine Borish £7.95 Fidelio press.
    best wishes

    Thanks - I did try looking for earlier recipes, but perhaps didn't go back as far as I should. May ask OH for the recipe book for my birthday - but got a while to wait! Bernie

    The nicest recipe for courgettes that I know is Hugh F.W.s one for pasta sauce.
    (serves 4)
    1kg. courgettes
    3tblspns.olive oil
    3cloves garlic
    50 gms.grated Parmesan(I use strong cheddar and a final grating of Parmesan)
    two tblspns.double cream
    Slice gourgettes and cook gently in the oil with the crushed garlic until soft break up a bit and stir in cream. Let it bubble for a minute or two then take off heat and stir in cheese.Serve with the pasta of your choice. Lovely!!

    I just fry mine in butter and put them onto a piece of toast for brunch on a Sunday, let the butter soak in..... yum
