with parmesan shavings, pepper and breadcrumbs occasionally, and they are divine that way!


Very Greek and my favourite way, but naughty me fries them in a little olive oil  :)

for me - eat them raw, dipped in Humous - nice and simple and delicious!

Never knew it was a Greek recipe Mums, we always wanted to eat them in anyway possible!

The fleshy bits always remind me of acocado, which is also a fave...

That's a new one, and investigating as we speak - or post wherever you are Gazza!

Invented this morning - roast courgette houmous!  The only recipes I've seen online have used grated raw courgette, and I didn't fancy that.

I just stuck 4 whole courgettes on a baking try in the oven at gas 7 for about an hour - so they were completely soft.   When they'd cooled a bit I took the skins off (they pulled off fairly easily), then squeezed the pulp to renove most of the water.  It's surprising how little solid stuff (pulp and seeds) you end up with!  Then whizzed it with a couple of cloves of gralic,  lemon juice, and maybe a dessertspoon of tahini (sorry, I don't measure stuff unless it's a cake).   I didn't add any salt, but I hardly ever use it in anything so that 's what my palate is used to -  others might want some in there.

It's really quite good and as I eat houmous regularly, I think I might use up quite a few of the blighters like this.

sounds good, without the tahini it's very similar to greek aubergine salad Melizanosalata  :D

Found a tub of mixed feta cheese with herbs and olives in garlic oil lurking in the back of the fridge.

Just fried 2 yellow courgettes in the oil and poured the cheese/olives on top.  A very quick and tasty last minute lunch which I will certainly do again  :)

I've just grated a whacking great pile, measured them into individual storage bags that I then put into a bigger freezer bag and put the main bag into the freezer.

All bags were labelled with the quantity and what it is so I can later pull out a bag and it's the exact amount I need for zucchini/courgette bread and other recipes I make.

We're getting about five a day Trills, plus the 'Escapees', which have to be binned, but so far, they've all gone to good homes..;0)

Does that mean your neighbours won't answer the door when they see you coming?  :D

Ha ha ha, Trills!

Bit like that really; Mrs Growster likes to arrange all the veg we've brought home in a trug basket, so that everyone cam see what we've produced. If we meet any chums they get a handful of whatever we have on board, so we get rid of the excess, and a few old dolls and blokes etc get a free veg gift, which seems to make everyone feel good...

Well, I hope so...;0)

One further than the parmesan and breadcrumbs, Matt Tebbutt used mayo for "glue" rather than egg, and baked (fishfingers) the other day, so tried it with courgette and aubergine today and served with tzatziki and greek salad. Yummy. No courgettes this year but the cues have done OK.

You bin the monsters? They're my favourites :)

I like courgettes cooked all sorts of ways, but every now and then I treat myself and let one grow into a monster so I can stuff it with mince and tomatoes and garlic and mozzarella and all sorts of lusciousness, and that's my very favourite way to eat them.

Any recipes for stuffing large courgettes/marrows or squashes?
