I have a glut, yes a GLUT of courgettes from the garden. What is one to do with them all?
I will be giving it a go.
because it's an excellent base for so many sauces. ALso, I love grated courgette and onion in an omelette.
I won't forget this. Not because I am elephant-like, no. But for other reasons :(
people (like me) love stuff from allotments
unless you always work from home
in which case - the "free" box outside your house is a good idea. Everyone loves free food.
and plug their every hole with them.
or yeah, take 'em to work that works also.
with a sign saying "free"
Or is it that you are so comfortable you have more than you need?
It would have been middle class if he called them zucchini.
it would have been American.
Did not know this.
They eschew our use of French naming.
Is anyone else having problems with the Social Board page?
It seems to have stopped updating at 10.53am, apparently.
Peel them into strips, cook them down with garlic, chilli, butter and oil. Mix with linguini. Maybe some king prawns, if you so wish.
and then send the prawn/courgette/linguini pasta to me
A couple of them have got to marrow status Balonz.... gonna cut in half hollow out and put bolognaise/chilli con carne sauce in there. Theres a chutney recipe knocking around some where that I might try.
Argh I've just realised I forgot my lunch
lets stop talking about this.
now there's a question
Yeah sure you do. You shovel that cake right in there. I seen ya.
we've run out of options!
Anyway, off to brew some courgette pancake stout.
Only in the same world where women shouldn't be allowed to have jobs, you mongface.
no idea if it's nice... i'm generally not a fan of stuff like this (chocolate beetroot cake, desserts with chilli in them, etc) but you might be
And the fact that they have almost no taste and are still gross shows what a despicable vegetable they really are
THROW THEM ALL INTO THE SEA
is to throw it in the sea. Apart from anything else, it's really, really hard to do from London
That's where your phone is, in the sea.
Am I being a touch pedantic?
Oh god, I'm taking stuff too seriously again.
Also, taking it very personally that nobody has this-ed my suggestion, which was clearly the winning effort :(
I confess to not checking your link out at first but there is a mighty fine selection of recipes there.... thanky! And many salad suggestions... go figure
There's no point throwing something into the sea unless you do it from a windswept cliff face. Lobbing courgettes into the Thames is a just the work of a sad lunatic. Hurling them into a gale from a cliff edge has an element of Wuthering Heights-level pathos.
There's some drama right there.
then why do you people pretend to hate it?
We're being overun!
and shout "The aliens are here"
Goes well with Sausages and Mash
I had cheese filled courgette flowers in a restaurant once as a starter. It was amazing.
then you skipped home to your fairy castle with all the other elves??
I always knew you were a food genius, I've always said it to people
I will post it this evening
but I did make the recipe I posted above and it was very nice and I have forgotten all about it but now it is remembered I may well make it the weekend after next when I'm having people over for lunch.
but I did lots of spicey marrow and potato soup which was pretty good... and a risotto a few times which was less interesting.
and realised I'd given the same advice three years ago.
or if you are near oxford, give them to me and i'll make a courgette cake
... I have a MARROW. What the fuck can I do with it? At the moment it's wearing a beanie hat and sunglasses.
She was cooking them into everything for ages. For her birthday this year I bought her seeds for purple ones.
