The Best Vegan Courgette Recipes
Like aubergines, courgette can draw mixed reactions from people — but done right, and this vegetable will become your new favourite ingredient. From courgette fritters to rich curries, here are our favourite recipes.
Courgettes are one of those vegetables that have a delicate flavour alone but can take on strong and bold flavours beautifully too. If you’re looking for some inspiration to get the best out of the versatile vegetable, look no further than this recipe round-up.
This tart showcases how courgette can be creamy and almost melt in your mouth when roasted to perfection. Along with asparagus, broad beans and peas, this tart is creamy, flaky and crisp. It’s a spring greens tart but we understand if you have this often all year round.
These courgette fritters burgers are packed with flavour and are a work of magic. The courgette is cooked until caramelised, making for a slightly sweet fritter that is also salty, crunchy and juicy. On a soft bun and topped with a green herby tahini sauce, these fritters will be the highlight of your week.
This recipe is perfect for days where you need something hearty and you’ve got a lot of odds and ends of vegetables to use up. Courgette works really well in this rich and velvety curry, as it takes on the spices beautifully. It also gives the curry a great texture, as it is both creamy and soft when cooked, but also has a little bite to it.
Our Rainbow Falafel Mezze is a popular dish over at the shop, so we’ve got the recipe here to help you recreate it yourself at home. Crispy Falafel, bright beetroot houmous and juicy vegetables make this dish a zingy and savoury number. It turns out that courgette roasted in sumac, garlic and onion are quite the match made in heaven, so try it for yourself and see!
