4 large courgettes, sliced lengthways about 1/2cm thick
3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and black pepper
350ml Greek yoghurt
juice of half a lemon
1 clove garlic, crushed
fresh mint or basil to garnish (optional)
1 tablespoon pine nuts or pistachios, lightly toasted

Handy Hint

You can use low fat yoghurt, in which case use it as a dressing rather than layering it because it can get very runny. The courgettes can also be sprinkled with a little cumin powder before cooking.


1. Heat the grill or griddle
2. Brush the courgettes with oil on both sides and add a little salt
If using a grill, lay them on a baking sheet lined with foil and
grill. If using a griddle, place directly onto it.
3. Cook until lightly browned or charred on both sides
4. Mix the yoghurt, lemon juice and garlic
5. Allow the courgettes to cool, then layer in a dish with the
yoghurt mix.
6. Garnish with one of the herbs and nuts.
Improves with standing for a few minutes

This is absolutely delicious if you like uncooked garlic. We eat it with other salads and an interesting Mediterranean bread or with grilled fish and couscous.
