Rolled courgettes

This is a super simple recipe which will make your heart sing. They are perfect for a summer’s evening along with a glass of chilled wine. And they’ll fit equally well in a summer Buddha bowl… I’m thinking green lentils, dressed salad leaves, babaganoush and some lovely roasted tomatoes. Yummalicious.

Method

Preheat your bbq or griddle hot until it’s hot.

Top and tail the courgettes. Slice them as thinly as possible vertically, discarding the outer strips from either side. (The slices need to be thin enough to roll.)

Place the courgette slices in a bowl and drizzle over a little rapeseed oil and add in a pinch of Maldon sea salt. Toss the courgettes so that they are evenly coated.

When the bbq or griddle pan is ready, carefully place the courgettes on the hot grill or griddle and cook for 2 minutes on either side, or until they start to take on the charred grill marks. Remove from the heat and place in the spare bowl. Cover the bowl with clingfilm and leave to the side for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix together the feta, Greek yoghurt, lemon zest, herbs, sumac and pepper in a bowl and taste for seasoning. Check to see if the mixture needs more lemon zest, oil, herbs, pepper or a squeeze of lemon. It will be quite sharp.

When ready, carefully lay the courgettes strips out vertically. Place a teaspoon of filling at the nearest end of each strip and roll tucking the ends in at the bottom.

Place on a plate or platter and enjoy!

Coating the courgettes first in oil and seasoning them with Maldon salt will lock in the flavour. Covering them with clingfilm whist they are hot will help them soften them so that your able to roll them properly.”
