Courgette

September's best: Courgette

Very versatile and easy to cook, no wonder the humble courgette is such a popular vegetable. Its dark green sheen, firm cream flesh and nourishingly sweet flavour are best enjoyed around August.

Our quick and tasty tips:

  • Try finely slicing raw courgette with a mandolin and dressing with the zest and juice of a lemon, some good olive oil and salt and pepper. Scatter over some finely chopped chilli or some mint.

  • Delicious served in an omelette with basil or mint and some feta cheese.
