So this was a bit of an experiment. It was actually delicious. I learned 2 things from this experiment though – use 2 courgettes and really squeeze the moisture out!

1) preheat oven to 220 degrees c.

2) grate 2 courgettes and squeeze out all the water. Mix in a grated 1 inch cube of cheddar and 1 beaten egg.

3) spread onto a baking sheet and oven for 15-20 mins.

4) add a topping of your choice – I mixed tomato puree with tomato ketchup and added spinach and a crumbling of feta.

Despite the thinness and slightly soggy middle, it really did taste lovely, like a big courgettey pancake.
