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.
