It’s that time of year again. The courgettes have come on stream and every day we are out in the garden gathering a few. This year we have green and yellow and the tennis ball ones called Nice Ronde. These charlottes are lovely served on their own as a veggie starter or alongside griddled chicken. You griddle slices to line your moulds and then make a purée with the remainder adding egg yolks, cream and cheese. After being baked in the oven for about 20 minutes (in a bain marie) they can be cooled and reheated the following day. Yes, it’s a bit of a fiddle but the fact that they can be done in advance is great and they look lovely on the plate.

Easy vegetarian and vegan recipes – spinach & chickpea pasties
I’ve been playing around with vegan recipes a bit over the past few weeks and this recipe (in a slightly different form), was given to me by English friends Nettie and David. I’ve fiddled around with it a bit and made a few changes including the addition of cumin. It makes a lovely lunch served with baby new potatoes and some slow roasted tomatoes.26 Aug, 2014
