|baked courgettes with feta, tomato, mint & marjoram|
My seasonal recipe for baked courgettes with feta, tomato, mint and marjoram is a real taste of summer. I added fresh marjoram and mint because I have this growing in abundance in our garden, but it would be equally delicious with basil or coriander.
The baked courgettes can be served as a vegetarian main dish or are good as a vegetable side dish too. It's so quick and simple to put together. I hope you enjoy and do let me know how it goes. Do feel free to share your favourite seasonal recipes too.
