Are These The Best Courgette Recipes Ever?


I adore courgettes, there’s something about the flavour that I really like. One of my favourite things to do with them is to cut them into sticks, much like chips. I then marinate them briefly with olive oil, various herbs (thyme, rosemary etc) and finally some some sea salt and a sprinkle of pepper. After pan frying for a few minutes, I put them on top of a salad. Love it!

There’s loads of great recipes out there for courgettes, it’s amazing what you can do with them! I’ve found what could be the best courgette recipes from some of my favourite food bloggers.

If I had to pick one, I would have to say the spiralized courgette pasta from Whitty Paleo is my favouritet. I really like the idea of a mushroom and turmeric sauce!

Feta and Tomato Stuffed Courgette (Zucchini) – BakingQueen74

Summer nights and eating al fresco is one of my favourite pastimes. Summery food (and a cold glass of wine) and I’m happy. These large courgettes were grown by my sister in law, I didn’t manage to get round to growing any vegetables this year, but these are still very local! Simply stuffed with feta, tomatoes, garlic and red pepper, this feta and tomato stuffed courgette made a great meal, served with salad and crusty bread. I wonder if you wrapped them in foil if you could cook this on the barbecue? Must try it out.

Halloumi, Mint & Courgette Burgers – Raw Rhubarb

Pretty little patties PACKED with halloumi. Because you can never have too much halloumi. Mint for a summery feel & courgette for texture, colour and nutrition. BBQ ready?

Courgette and Chickpea Pancakes with Mango and Cucumber Chutney – Tin & Thyme

The courgettes, otherwise known as zucchini, continue to flourish in the way only courgettes know how to. Having enjoyed the spiced courgette fritters I made recently and with plenty more courgettes developing, I couldn’t resist this chickpea pancake version when I spotted it in the February 2005 issue of Delicious.
