What to do with a glut of courgettes?

It has been a day of cooking. It’s that time of year when my allotment is producing way more courgettes (zucchinis) than we can eat so I had to take desperate measures.

I took the advice of an old friend from Christchurch and made chutney. This is my first attempt and I didn’t make a huge batch but I tasted it before putting it in jars and it’s just delicious. I followed this recipe.

I’ll think I’ll make another batch.

I then made a chocolate zucchini (courgette) bundt cake from the Isa Does It cookbook (a really fantastic vegan cookbook). The recipe is available online here. Elizabeth made the chocolate ganache.

Then I made Jamie Oliver’s Reverse Puff Pastry Pizza with lots of roasted courgettes. We ate it vegan, without the parmesan and feta and it was really good.

Lastly, I made Dr Gregor’s Fudgy No-Bake Brownies and these are amazing. No courgettes in these. These are so easy to make, contain no sugar, require no baking, and taste divine.
