Simple Summer Side Dish

Summer is here! Well at least for now… And I’ve got the beginnings of real tomatoes growing in m garden – I mean REAL tomatoes, not just the plants that probably won’t grown anything by tomatoes!! I shall now calm down and provide you with the simplest easiest accompaniment to almost anything, as long as it’s been char-grilled.

This will serve 2.

1 x courgette
8 cherry tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
3 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt and pepper
The teeniest sprinkle of sugar

  • Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Chop the courgette into small chunks
  • Quarter the cherry tomatoes
  • Very finely chop the garlic
  • Pop it all into a cake tin, they don’t need to be spread out, if they are quite close all the better for the juices

  • Pour over the olive oil
  • Season with salt and pepper
  • Pop in the oven for 20 minutes, giving it a shake after 10 minutes

  • Sprinkle the sugar

I know it’s really simple, and hardly deserves a recipe, but it tasted so much better than I thought it would so I had quickly write about it.

This will be so good with a BBQ! Bring on the long lazy weekends!!
