Simple vegetable dishes are a staple of Mediterranean cooking and these honey roasted courgettes with feta are a little taste of Greek sunshine on a plate. Ideal for serving as part of a meze style starter with other small dishes, as a vegetable side dish alongside pork chops or BBQ kebabs etc or as your main supper dish with a fried egg added on top.
Keep It Simple
Like most good Mediterranean dishes these honey roasted courgettes have very few ingredients, just courgettes (zucchini), garlic, honey, olive oil, black pepper and of course feta cheese.
You want to slice the courgettes lengthwise like long strips, not the usual rounds and also slice the garlic instead of mincing it in the usual way.
Once cooked the courgette slices will be softened and ribbon like and with the oil and honey have a silken texture. Adding the feta gives a saltiness so don’t add additional salt to this recipe, freshly ground black pepper is the only seasoning you’ll need here.
