I chucked mine in a SW lasgne and in the spicy bean and sausage casserole fom the family feast book. Nothing specific but just to add to a recipe.

Tonight i had some courgettes too to use up and i made courgette soup it tastes good but does have half a pint of semi skimmed milk in it so does have a few syns. So 2 syns per bowl. If you want the recipe let me know it very similar to leek and potato.

I love them peeled in to long strips, then gently fried with olive oil and lots of garlic and served with Salmon or steak.

However, I haven't had that since starting SW, don't think the Frylight would have the same effect? I would use them up in making homemade ratoutille - don't like aubergines but could add lots of tomatoes, garlic, peppers, onions and courgettes and slow cook them into a lovely dish!! :)

We are growing some this year, I just love them!!

Mediteranean roast veggies - sliced courgettes, tomatoes, onions, aubergines all sliced up on a baking tray, spray with fry light, sprinkle with herbs and roast. Yum!

Or, a similar mix can be cooked really nicely in a panin press if you;ve got one, you even get those grilled charred stripes on them.

Or cut up small with mushrooms and other soft veggies to make veggie kebabs

I loooove courgettes and miss growing them on my allotment
