Ribboned & Grilled Courgette

This side is a nice way to change up your vegetables. We enjoyed ours in a mixed-veg wrap for lunch, but it also works great as a salad, tossed with oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper and served on its own or with fish or another dish of some sort. Whatever you fancy!

You will need (serves two, bearing in mind we had ours in a wrap each. Use slightly more if it will be used as the base to your dish):

  • 1 courgette
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes
  • Salt and Pepper

Preheat your grill to around 200 degrees Celsius, then peel and ribbon your courgette whilst it heats up.
In a mixing bowl, mix the oil, paprika, chilli flakes and the salt and pepper onto the ribboned courgette so that each spice is distributed evenly. Then place into the oven and grill for roughly 8 minutes, or until the courgette is soft and has started to crisp slightly. So quick, simple and delicious!
