Courgette Recipe

Here is a good recipe for when you have some of your own home-grown courgettes! I now have two courgettes that are big enough to harvest so I may try this recipe. I made a similar frittata last week and they are lovely if you have things to use up in the fridge. I never knew what they were called but always make these instead of an omelette. If you put a layer of potatoes on the bottom its even nicer.

Courgette Frittata

Ingredients
1 small red onion halved and sliced
2 medium courgettes sliced
olive oil for frying
6 eggs
50g mature cheddar cheese (grated)

Fry the onion and courgette gently in a little olive oil for 10 minutes until softened and turning golden. Beat the eggs then mix in the cheese and veg. Heat some oil in a small non-stick frying pan and pour in the egg mix. Cook, moving the egg around until the base is set. Slide under a hot grill until puffed and golden. Cut into wedges and serve with a leafy salad.

I found this recipe through http://www.eattheseasons.co.uk/ and it refers you to BBC GoodFood website where you will find loads more.

Happy gardening. Amanda
