The courgettes are dwindling, but that does not mean that I don't have many courgette recipes to share, I do still have some like this cheap and cheerful courgette, corn and mint filling. Cheap because the ingredients are affordable and abundant this time of the year, and cheerful simply because of the carnival colours.
If you don't want to use fresh sweetcorn scraped from the cob, you can use tinned or frozen. Oh the mint is from my garden too.
This filling was used two ways, stuffed into a tortilla wrap and secondly, in a pasty, but I can also see it good stirred through some grains for salad and even pasta dish.
Courgette, Corn and Mint
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 red chillies, minced
70ggg courgettes, cut into small cubes
2 tablespoons fresh mint, minced
Juice 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Crumbled feta to serve
In a wide pan, heat the onion then saute the onion until soft, stir int he garlic and the chilli and cook for a couple of minutes, before stirring in the courgette.
Saute until the courgettes catch a little colour and begin to soften, you still want some bite.
Stir in the sweetcorn, mint and lemon juice.
Season to taste, warm through then serve with optional feta cheese.
