Well, kind of a salad, or perhaps a tasty topping for bruschetta. Either way this is very quick and very tasty.
To be honest I’ve had a bit of a courgette disaster. Last year I had so many I couldn’t get through them. This year all the plants have died. Luckily my allotment neighbour came to the rescue so I traded two courgettes for a lettuce and so decided to give this a try.
2 courgettes – sliced
2-3 tablespoons good oil – I used a mixture of hemp oil and mild olive oil but you could use extra virgin olive oil
1 wedge of brie – sorry I threw the pack away so not sure what weight it was – diced
1 medium very ripe tomato – diced
freshly ground black pepper
juice of half a lemon
Heat the oil in a heavy based frying pan. When nice and hot fry the courgette slices until browned on each side – even slightly charred.
Place in a dish with the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Now add the cubed brie and tomatoes. Add the lemon juice and mix gently. The brie should start to melt from the heat in the courgettes.
Serve with green salad and hunks of french bread.
