    Hi
    I have been given a huge marrow and would like to make something with it - any ideas?
    I am a vegetarian.

    I make curried marrow soup. It is not very pretty, but it is filling.

    marrow
    onion
    veg stock
    curry powder
    pinch of chilli flakes

    Boil all together then whizz with the blender.
    Serve with a tablespoon of normandy fromage frais

    If you have any marrow left you could use it as the layering in a moussaka. That's how I get my sons to eat it without knowing the difference. :)

    I just slice it thinly and lay it on a baking sheet that I've 'fry lighted' and let them soften in the oven for 10 mins and then use them inbetween the layers, alternating with thinly sliced potato. Is yum!

    Good idea, Crumble. I think there was a veggie moussaka recipe in the September SW magazine. Looked lush.

    Irene - I don't use a recipe - just bung it all in. About a quarter marrow, one onion, enough stock to cover then a bit more, 1 tablespoon of curry powder and a quarter teaspoon of chilli flakes.

    Or you could make chutney and eat it throughout the year.

    Delia Smith has a great marrow recipe with tomatoes and coriander - you might find it if you look on her website!
