COURGETTES – Appearances from our anti-oxidant friends, vitamins C & A. The dietary fibre in courgettes can also help lowering our cholesterol levels. The same fibre matched with the courgette’s water content will also make you feel full, and with a low calorie content could be used for weight management.

Courgette’s are also great for our skin; hydration, anti-ageing, collagen formation, and puffy eyes.

Olive oil

Chilli flakes (optional)

 

Method.

Preheat your oven to 210c / 190c (fan) / Gas Mark 6 ½

 

  1. To make sure your courgette halves sit flat on your baking tray, use a knife to level the bottoms out by taking a small slice off, if necessary.
  2. Brush lightly with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of garlic granules on each courgette half.
  3. Top with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella (sit them close together so as the cheese melts it secures the tomatoes in place).
  4. Scatter with basil, oregano, and chilli flakes to your desired level of herb! Top with some freshly cracked black pepper and place in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is going golden and courgettes are just cooked through and still have a bit of bite!
