Crushed Potato, Courgette and Feta Salad

So I was sitting in the garden early this evening minding my own business, sipping on some homemade Hibiscus Cooler (recipe to come), when I saw what I thought at first glance were dead dandelion seeds floating by, but when I paused to look properly - I realised they were flying ants!. Eek.  We seem to have so many different ants in the garden this year and I am not sure why?!.  

Anyway, onto some good food from the garden.

Although we have new potatoes growing in the garden, for some reason D has decided not to dig them up yet - so these are shop bought.  These new potatoes were left over from another meal, so I decided to crush them a little and then throw them into a baking tray along with some of my harvest from the weekend: round courgette cut into wedges, yellow courgette sliced into thick coins and some beans doused with some olive oil and then into the oven to roast a little.
Once the courgettes were suitably soft, I stirred in some of the homegrown peas, a little salt and pepper and chopped parsley. Then covered it with some feta cheese and spring onions.  I returned it to the oven for a few minutes, before serving it.  
Even though this was so simple to put together, D liked it very much.  He especially loved the roasted green courgette wedges. 
I am sharing this simple salad with The VegHog who is hosting #EatYourGreens this month.  Please do join in this month, you have plenty of time to share a vegan or vegetarian recipe made with either a green fruit or green vegetable, including herbs! As well as and Soup, Salad and Sammies hosted by Kahakai Kitchen

  2. Flying ants! That sounds like you need to keep your mouth shut :-) I would worry about swallowing one! But would be happy to eat your salad - sounds lovely

    1. Johanna - eek. fortunately, they avoid your mouth, but land on your arms instead. I smacked a few. The salad made a pleasant change

  3. Wow, you're quick with Eat Your Greens this month, it's nice to have an early start! This is just my kind of summer dish, and even better that most of it is homegrown. I'm sure your own new potatoes are also lovely. I can't wait to see that Hibiscus Cooler recipe! Have a nice weekend!

  5. We have been having crushed new potatoes and jerseys too, following watching the DIRTY VEGAN on BBC IPLAYER. He crushes potaoes into a roast pan with seasoning and thyme and drizzles with olive oil and the browns in the oven. Very nice!

    1. He's making another series. He's an interesting character having been a big meat eater most of his life and adventurous in that he would eat anything from eyeballs of animals to other bits, he turned vegan not that long ago and then came the opp to make a vegan cookery show. He def. is doing well for himself.
