Courgette and Barley Salad

I bought a bag of barley last year with high hopes of making hearty soups and comforting stews in the winter months. A year later and there was still half a bag languishing in the back of the cupboard. We’ve still got some courgettes in the fridge, and I decided to try using the cooked […]


Courgette Spaghetti

I discovered a new blog recently – Smitten Kitchen. It quickly went on my google reader subscribe list and I’m now suitably hooked so I urge you check it out too. This recipe immediatley appealed as it’s another courgette recipe. Although very similar to other courgette pasta, this is a sort of light version. Courgettes […]


Roast Chicken and Bulghar Wheat Salad

A summery take on a simple roast chicken, eaten with this courgette and bulghar wheat salad, an extra smattering of pine nuts and some cooling, garlicky tzatiki.


Courgette Fritters with a Tomato and Almond Sauce

I’m aware this is another courgette recipe. What can I say? We’re overwhelmed, not only are we getting them from our vegbox but the marrows are also threatening to take over at the allotment we’re babysitting.

Taking inspiration from this 101Cookbooks recipe, this is a simple and fresh soup of courgette and spinach, I add chickpeas for extra thickness and just […]


Courgette, Tomato and Basil Fritatta

A colourful, summery fritatta making the most of the abundant supply of courgettes and sweet and juicy cherry tomatoes at the moment; finished off with a little cheese and a sprinkling of basil.

Courgette Pasta

We got the first of summer’s courgettes in our veg box this week, small, firm and sprightly specimens. Perfect for the first Courgette Pasta of the summer. I wrote about this last year, but for those of you who might not have read it or who simply forgot, then this is a little reminder. A […]
