It’s August and at some point in August, you can guarantee there will be a post about how to use up a courgette. We got one on Tuesday and five on Saturday, which isn’t an excessive amount but they were big, I think the rain we had this week did the plants some good.
This wasn’t even my idea, it’s very similar to Courgette Caviar but quicker and less fuss. It’s also not a good way to ‘hide’ courgettes for the courgette averse. I do understand, I have a nephew that refuses to eat peas or tomatoes and I am a very recent convert to raw tomatoes (and still won’t eat one from a supermarket by itself!). I understand fussy eaters, I’ve been one for years but this isn’t a good way to encourage anyone to eat something they don’t like. I think of this sauce as adding something to a tomato sauce and that’s great but I don’t think it’s going to convert someone who doesn’t love courgettes!I diced two small onions and started to brown them in olive oil, then I grated a large courgette and added that with six cloves of garlic to the pan with the onions.I added a large pinch of salt and let everything cook down and the water in the courgette evaporate. Then I added two tins of chopped tomatoes and let it all cook down.
Anyone else with masses of summer squash to use up? What are you doing with it?
