Courgette/Zucchini & Tomato & Garlic Fry.
If you have a glut of courgettes and tomatoes in the garden or just using up the last of your produce this autumn this recipe is for you.
One of the easiest and tastiest ways to eat them is to fry them up in Olive Oil with garlic.
The second photo is courgette with red pepper, also fried with garlic. Some like to add onion but not me. I’m not even keen on the one with peppers as it begins to taste like Ratatouille.
I prefer the clean taste of garlic, tomato and Olive oil with the courgette soaking up all those flavours.
I always add fresh chopped herbs, Flat Leaf Parsley is my fav. but adding some Basil is delicious too or you can lean towards the Italian with Oregano and Marjoram.
Courgettes 2-3 medium
Tomatoes as many or few as you like
Could be 3 very large ones or two large handsful of cherry tomatoes
Garlic 3 or more large cloves
S & P
CHOP the courgettes and tomatoes
SLICE the garlic cloves
FRY the courgettes with tomatoes in a large frying pan for a couple of minutes
SEASON with salt & pepper
ADD the garlic and fry for another couple of minutes. 5 minutes altogether should be enough.
Make sure you don’t fry them too long as they will be too soft, they need a little bite or they will be a sauce for pasta, which is also nice.
SPRINKLE over with roughly chopped fresh herbs (and Parmesan cheese if you want it)
