This is a delicious recipe but beware it doesn’t keep for long. Best eaten in 2 days, which is no hardship in our house! It also freezes well. I like to keep slices of it handy for lunchboxes and snacks.
2medium potatoeschopped chunkily (no need to peel)
4 tbspGreek yoghurt
Saute the potatoes in a large frying pan with the oil, until they start to soften.
Add in the courgettes and continue to cook.
Beat the eggs, add in the herbs, black pepper and yoghurt
Pour the eggs over the vegetables so they are covered. You may have to swirl the pan or move some of the veggies around.
Cook on a medium heat until the top starts to set.
Transfer under the grill and continue to cook until the top is set.
Cut into wedges and serve with a salad to make this give you 2 of your vegetable portions.
A tasty way to snack on courgettes, you can serve these with a whole variety of dips, or just as part of dinner! My boy totally suprised me with this as he says “courgettes are yucky” and would normally refuse to eat a chunk of one but tried these and ate a whole pile of them!
Cut the courgettes into strips, dip into egg and roll in a mixture of cornmeal with paprika, dried herbs and a sprinkle of grated cheese.
1 medium courgette
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp mixed herbs
Bake in the oven at 220C/200 fan/Gas 7 for 20 minutes turning halfway through cooking.
I’m always after ways to get more veggies into the children and myself. Hubby likes to do his own thing at lunch, so I made these as a preparation for the toddler, baby and my lunches. They were fast to make and went well warmed up with a salad for lunch. Make a batch, freeze a batch and feel smug all week.
I love a bargain and I love using up leftovers. This recipes combines both! Using some puff pastry I found reduced to 16p and the veggies that were in need of being eaten quick. This was a bit of a gamble as I haven’t cooked a whole heap with beetroot but the sweetness of the beetroot really works and it gives these a beautiful colour.
Beetroot is packed with the phytonutrients: Betalain, a good antioxidant, this gives them their red colour. They also contain a good amount of folate, manganese and potassium plus provide fibre.
Although puff pastry isn’t something I would recommend people eat everyday, this recipe is packed with veggies and makes a good alternative for lunches.
