I have an abundance of courgettes at the moment so was trying to think of something different to do with them.
I decided to just do a simple saute with Onions, Thyme and Garlic, and it was delicious.
- 2 tablespoons of Ghee
- 5 cloves of Garlic, roughly chopped
- 2 large Onions, diced but in biggish pieces
- 1 bunch Thyme
- 2 very large Courgettes, cut in half and then sliced. If your courgettes were smaller I would use 3 to 4 and just slice them.
- Salt and Black Pepper
- torn Basil leaves to serve
Heat the Ghee in a large frypan and saute the Onion and Garlic until it is soft. Add the Thyme and the sliced Courgettes and on a reasonably high heat cook them until they have a nice brown color. You will have to keep stirring them, but you don’t want them to turn into a mush, so be gentle.
Once they are nicely browned add Salt and Black Pepper to taste.
When serving, sprinkle over the torn Basil leaves.
You could cook them in a good quality cold pressed oil (then they would be Vegan), but he Ghee gives them a lovely rich flavour as courgettes can be a bit bland and need added ooomph!!!
I served this with a Quinoa “Paella” which had some seared tomatoes in it and mozzarella cheese on top. I put this in the oven until it developed a nice crust around the outside.
