Courgettes

I've got some that need using up tonight for dinner and need some inspiration for how to do them. Steamed is boring and don't want to fry them. Any ideas ?

    They actually go quite well in a sweet bread reciepe, though if you are now going to ask me for it you can whistle because I'm at work and strangely dont know it off by heart.

    I stir fry all my veg so apart from that -no idea!

    Maybe do ratatouille or something. I even googled a recipe for ya :p

    also, I think they're used in veggie lasagne.

    Grate them like you would potatos, and make little rostis. They taste pretty good. Or put it in a quiche with tomatoes and basil :yum:

    I made some lovely courgette fritters the other day, mixed in some grated onion with 4 courgettes, added a little mozzarella, egg and flour to bind. I did need to fry them but they're nice to nibble on cold :D

    Sounds similar to the rostis :yum:

    how about stuffing them? they work pretty well and are very very easy to do, when I worked in a restaurant I had a similar recipe to this which accompanied a gigot of lamb.

    spartaalbion's idea is good. When I was in Switzerland practically all I made was courgettes filled with quinoa and then cooked up in a pot of tomato passata and spices. Was always really good :yum:

    Rostis made from grated potato, onion and courgette spiced up and combined with egg and cheese are really good. There are other people in this thread who clearly also have excellent taste and culinary skills :D

    What the bugger are you talking about, 'animal glands'? I mean a sweet bread a bit like a cake but in a loaf, a bit like carrot cake.

    Your thinking of these sweetbreads

    Sweetbread is the name of a dish made of the pancreas (belly/stomach/heart sweetbread) or thymus gland (neck/throat/gullet sweetbread) of an animal younger than one year old. These animals are usually lambs or calves.

    Yeah of course, I was suggesting you do that because you were bound to have a lambs pancreas knocking about the kitchen.

    Are the courgettes just deep-fried corgettes ?
