Courgette, Tomato and Paprika Cake

August 3, 2010

I mentioned that the veggies in our garden were starting to crop well. None more so than the courgette! I’ve never grown courgettes before and I must say, I’m not disappointed. From the one tiny seed I planted back in April, we have a huge plant that’s taking over a large corner of the garden and producing so many (huge!) courgettes than we have quite a glut. The tomatoes are also starting to ripen, so we were glad to find this recipe for Courgette, Tomato and Paprika Cake.

It’s admittedly not very cakey — quite mushy in fact — but made with our own home-grown courgettes and tomatoes — and served with home-grown french beans and (unfortunately not home-grown) new potatoes — it makes a delicious and filling dinner and it’s very rewarding to think we’re a step closer to self-sufficiency. A few food miles saved along the way.
