2 new Courgette Recipes for you – Courgette and Lemon Drizzle Cake & Tomato and Courgette Soup

on August 18, 2013

We popped to the allotment yesterday to dig up some more new potatoes, prune the cherry tree, pull some beetroot, and ….. you’ve guessed it, pick some courgettes!   Only 6 yesterday, so it seems to be slowing down a little.

In a flurry of inspiration today and a little experimentation, Courgette and Lemon Drizzle Cake was made and swiftly followed by Tomato and Courgette Soup.

We had to make a second Courgette and Lemon Drizzle cake as the first one was snuffled down pretty quickly by some lovely friends.   The second one was only partially eaten straight away, and I don’t think tastes quite as nice the next day (but then I am a bit of a perfectionist – those who shared it with us seemed to like it ).   And all of our family loved the soup that was made by my husband and eldest daughter – they should get the credit for making it after my whimsical suggestion that we could use up some more courgette in it!!

    Just realised that the courgettes are definitely getting to me when I popped this on my brother-in-law’s facebook page……

    Just seen that you’ve tweeted me again! I reckon you should have a go at your friend’s idea and invent ways of disposing of them which don’t involve cooking them….

    1) grate them finely, make a hole in the pocket of a pair of NOT skinny jeans (do you have any), put grated courgette in your pocket and sprinkle them down your trouser leg as you walk to work?
    2) Drill a hole down the centre of one and pretend that you are using the most up to date green telescope whilst looking at the ISS?
