Apologies for the short interlude I have been unwell and the sight of food did not make me feel better!
I had prepared this post before my brief indisposition so it is a shame to waste the photos!
Above is my vegetarian sandwich using up the Halloumi cheese from the fridge. Spread the panini with mashed avocado then add shredded little gem lettuce, cucumber and halved cherry tomatoes, top with grilled or griddled Halloumi. Delicious.
My courgettes have done remarkably well this year despite the neglect.
Fresh from the plant they make a wonderful Courgette Bake – cut the courgettes in half lengthways and place into a pan of lightly salted boiling water for 2-3 minutes just to soften. Lift out and drain then place in a baking dish to form a base with the centres facing upwards.
Mix together the following:- a few sautéed mushrooms and spring onion, halved cherry tomatoes or chopped large ones, grated cheese, wholemeal breadcrumbs and a sprinkling of chopped chives, salt and pepper. Bind the mixture with a beaten egg. Spoon on top of the courgettes and place foil over the dish for the first 15 minutes in the oven at 180C. Remove the foil and further cook until golden brown reducing the temperature a little if necessary.
Serve immediatley with boiled new potatoes and a mixed salad.
