This was lovely surprise and honestly might change my mind about the courgettes. I find courgettes rather tasteless and the texture when cooked rather appalling. So trying now marinated with cheese and mint, it was very refreshing. It could be also great as small appetizer for the event as it does not get that soggy when it has set in its marinade.
Ingredients (makes 2 )
1 small courgettes
1 tbs olive oil
1tsp chili flakes
Handful fresh mint leaves chopped roughly
Zest of 1/2 lemon
100g feta cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Use peeler to slice thin slices from the courgettes
Place it in bowl and toss it with chili flakes, olive oil and mint leaves.
Add the lemon zest and mix, leave on the side for about 5-10 minutes to marinate. The courgettes gets nice and soft in texture.
Toast your bread, add the courgettes, top it up with feta and grind some fresh salt and pepper over it.
Quick and easy and super tatsty.
