As you know by now one of the main themes of this blog is that preparing good food doesn't have to be complicated and doesn't have to take a long time.
This week has been a busy one with family visits and kids waking up in the night... we all know how a bit of sleep deprivation can feel... so even more reason to enjoy this season of tasty vegetables and keep it simple.
A couple of ideas
Slice the courgette thinly (great if you have a slicer to do this), layer on a plate and add olive oil, lemon juice, fresh mint leaves roughly chopped and some fresh goats cheese.... delicious!
This one took a bit longer as I grilled each slice of aubergine in a griddle pan for a minute each side. I made my own pesto with just some fresh garlic, lots of basil leaves, olive oil and parmesan (you can add pine nuts but I didn't have any!). Layer on plate and enjoy...
Then just take them outdoors or in and enjoy the weather and your company... or even a quiet meal alone... smakelijk!
