Food with stripes is always more fun with my @lecreusetUK a reliable means to scorch stripes into steaks, peppers and today, courgettes.
Yes it takes some time, yes it takes some babysitting but honestly the flavour from chargrilled courgettes cannot be matched by cooking them any other way. I once bought some ready made chargrilled courgettes in olive oil from the orange supermarket and they were ok but home made is way better.
To make this salad you need:
3 courgettes cut into lengthway strips and chargrilled until stripey
50g feta cheese cut into dinky cubes
a handful of small cooked pulses such as puy lentils or these tiny brown chick peas from the ethnic foods aisle (chana something or another)
Confession: I received my Le Creuset grill pan as a wedding gift nearly 9 years ago and don’t use it as often as I ought.
