Aussie Recipes That Rock: Charred Courgette, Bunya Nuts and Herbs

Video highlights from Aussie Recipes That Rock



    4 yellow courgettes
    1/2 cup bunya nuts, roasted and chopped (or replace with pine nuts or almonds)
    2 cups mixed herbs like parsley, mint, dill and whatever you like the flavour of
    1 lemon


Slice the courgette lengthways about 5mm thick. Drizzle with oil and cook on a really hot wood grill, chargrill or griddle-pan. We want to achieve a nice char where the courgette begins to caramalise. Only cook on one side.

Once done place into a bowl with the bunya nuts or roast almonds. Zest in the lemon rind then squeeze in the juice. Add the herbs and a dash of good olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve.
