Recipe: Easy Peasy Courgette Cheese Bake

Who says that courgettes can’t become absolutely moreish?

Words: Jenny Somervell

Serves: 4
Time: 50 minutes


1 tbsp oil
4 courgettes, sliced
1 onion, sliced
3-4 cloves garlic
pepper & salt
1 tbsp flour
½ cup milk
200g cheddar (‘tasty’) cheese


Pre-heat the oven to 160°C. Oil a shallow oven dish. Layer the courgettes and sliced onion in the dish. Sprinkle with crushed garlic, 1 tsp salt and a generous grinding of black pepper. Bake for 15 -20 minutes.

Sprinkle the flour over and stir, then add the milk and top with the cheese. Bake a further 15-20 minutes. Finish under the grill for 5 minutes (if needed) to get a golden-brown top.

Serve hot.
