Courgettes / zucchini

This time of year the courgette plants are getting into full swing and you can be getting a tad tired of them in every meal. Leave them to long and before you know it you have marrows.

Here is a recipe that we are currently enjoying.

Grate the courgette 4 or 5 just over what you would see in the shop sized ones, add half a cup of flour, 3 or 4 eggs, a chopped up red capsicum and red onion for colour and a bit of taste. I have added a bit of soy sauce also curry powder to the mix as a seasoning as well as salt.
Cook them in a frying pan as you would whitebait patties. Yum.
I have cooked up a big batch and have put some patties in the freezer.. not sure what they will be like but worth a try ?

Cool, will give it a try.

Tonight the wife sliced zuccs into quarters, laid in oven dish, drizzled with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and Master Foods steak seasoning. Grate some parmesan cheese on top and roast until zuccs are cooked.
Very tasty. Wink

Slice into thin strips, blanch in boiling water for 2 mins and use instead of pasta.

This is our favourite by far. Sooooo simple. Courgettes, oil, salt, pepper.
I got lazy so copied text from another website Wink
Only thing I'll add to below is if you can cook slowly so at least 30mins, ideally 45mins & use lemon infused olive oil. So good!
----------------

speaking about 3 ingredients pasta meal - one that my sis taught me after she lived in italy for a while :

1. extra virgin olive oil
2. small onion
3. 2 courgetts
4. pasta
5. salt and pepper

glugs of oil in a large pan, low heat, cut onion really fine and add to pan, DO NOT BURN OR HIGH SIZZLE, allow it to cook REALLY slowly, preferably put a lid on it on a very low heat.
while thats going on - peel the courgets, cut into thin chunks (if they are of the larger variety, half, then quater and remove seedy middle first.
add to pan - add in salt and pepper and stir. put lid back on (if you had one) stir and cook really slowly.

put on the boil your fav. pasta (tricolour pasta is nice) and cook accordingly.

stir the pan with the onion and courgetts in every now and again for the next 15 mins while the pasta cooks. (you can add a raw chopped tomato about 2 mins from the end)
the mix should start to break up and get a bit mushy - turn off at this point and allow to cool.

drain pasta and add mix to it, ensure pasta gets a good glistening coating

add more salt / pepper and more extra virgin olive oil according to taste

eat

couple of tips - cooking the onion/courgetts as low and as long as possible makes it better, allowing it to cool makes it better, fantastic olive oil makes it better Smiley
