At this time of year, courgettes are nice and small and if eaten now can be very sweet.
And, to keep picking them when they are small and you shouldn't have a great glut later in the year.
I picked some tiny yellow courgettes from the plot and wanted to make something delicious.
(ignore the strawberries in the picture, they don't come into the recipe)
I served this as a side dish as part of a larger salad and meat combination, but it can easily be scaled up and made into a main dish
What is needed?
1 small onion
A few baby courgettes
Handful of spinach leaves
1 sage leaf
1 or 2 cloves of garlic
A good glug of olive oil or butter
Slice the onions, roughly chop the spinach, thinly slice the courgettes and chop the sage
Heat the olive oil in a pan and drop in the sage when the oil is getting hot, leave for a few seconds before adding the onions.
Sweat the onions for a few minutes before adding the baby courgettes and spinach.
Cook for a further few minutes, and it is ready.
A very quick, delicious warm salad.
The flavour combination is very delightful. The sweetness of the courgettes and onions mixed with sage flavour works very well. I can see this will quickly become a weekly favourite that I cook.
