Summer is not the time to spend ages in the kitchen, especially on a glorious weekend day.
This one-pan-and-a-couple-of-bowls recipe uses ingredients that are at their best in summer. These are firm and flavoursome courgettes and tomatoes that even the supermarkets can’t get wrong at this time of year. Ingredients will be easy to find, there won’t be lots of washing up and the recipe doesn’t leave half-used packs.
The courgettes need grating which takes a few minutes, but if you have a food processor it can be done in seconds. If there is no mint in a nearby garden, add a growing pot to your shopping list for the best flavour.
Serves four. Your frying pan should be one that fits under the grill so that the dish can be browned.
3 medium courgettes
Pack of six ripe tomatoes (look for colour rather than shape)
6 large eggs – organic if possible, much tastier
200g pack of feta cheese
Salt and pepper
A bunch of fresh mint leaves
Now I know what to do with the discounted courgettes I picked up yesterday - great idea.
lunch is sorted - stressful football and tennis day and even a morning trip to the gym hasn't calmed me. Fingers crossed, but at least I will be well fed.
this sounds very summery and fresh - perfect for this hot weather. Shame most of the family don't like courgettes. Perhaps I will have to eat it all myself!
love it - this looks really easy and a recipe that doesn't take ages shopping or cooking works for me. The tomatoes are really tasty this year!
