It’s summer and that can only mean one thing! Courgettes! Or Zuchini! if you prefer. Courgettes are one of my favourite veg and they are at their best this time of year. What better way to eat them than as this super quick, healthy and easy side dish and it’s on the table in five minutes. Y-U-M!
What You'll Need
  • 1 Courgette/Zucchini
  • A Pinch of Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Korean Sesame Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, Mashed
  • 1 Spring Onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Red Chilli Pepper, finely chopped
  • A pinch of Black Pepper
  • A pinch of Roasted Sesame Seeds
How to Make It
  1. Thinly slice the courgette/zucchini into a half moon shape.
  2. Sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt leave aside for 10 minutes.
  3. Drain any water from the courgettes. This step makes the courgette crispier.
  4. Heat a frying pan over a low heat and add the sesame oil, mashed garlic and spring onions. Stir-fry them for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Try not to burn them.
  5. Add the courgette and stir.
  6. Add the chilli pepper and black pepper and fry them for a few seconds. Sprinkle over a pinch of roasted sesame seeds and enjoy!
