What to do with a glut of Courgettes?

Too many courgettes?

If you've grown courgettes, you'll know that you wait ages for them to grow and then assoon as you've picked the first courgette, you then become engulfed by them. You'll quickly run out of storage space and recipe ideas.

If you're struggling to work out what to do with your Courgettes, try making Courgetti! It's a healthy alternative to spaghetti and other pasta-based meals. All you need is a vegetable slicer that can Julien slice or a spiraliser. Both of these can be cheaply bought in store or online from a homeware store. Once sliced, add to a frying pan until they begin to go golden brown (usually 5-10 minutes) You'll want to keep an eye on it though to avoid them becoming too soft and mushy.

Equipment Needed:

  • Frying pan (want to go oil free? try using a stone frying pan)
  • Courgettes (obviously) 1 or more, per person
  • Spiraliser or a Julien slicer

You can then simply use these in any meals where you would normally use spaghetti, such as spaghetti bolognaise or spaghetti and meatballs.
