I had friends for supper on Ftiday,and had cooked steak with Chirimchiru sauce,which is garlicky and hot, 3 cloves of garlic chopped, ,3 spring onions chopped, flat leaf parsley, thyme,and oregano all chopped fine, then the juice of 1& 1/2 lemons, a slug of Balsamic Vinegar, chilli flakes and smoked paprika and then mixed together . After an hour you add enough Olive oil so that the mix is covered. Leave at room temperature till needed.
Well of course I had masses left over, so the first thing I have made with some of the Courgettes is a sort of omelette ,with grated courgettes, a good tablespoon of the Chirimchiru sauce,a couple of chopped spring onions , lots of fresh mint, basil and parsley, to which I added an egg,and a tablespoon of flour. Cooked the sauce and onions first ,and then mixed in the rest. Here it is.....tastes quite good surprisingly.
Now I just have to think of recipes using more courgettes.
Most probably a chocolate & Courgette cake, which is moist ,and you cannot tell there are vegetables in it. Also courgettes in rosemary and cream,a lovely recipe from Jane Grigson's Vegetable book, and then a courgette soup., perhaps courgette and cheese scones? At least it's healthy,and organic!. They also brought me some sorrel from which I shall make a sauce to have with salmon, it has a unique taste, not to everyone's liking though, being very tart,and as my mother used to say " takes the skin off your teeth".
