As I have a little pile of seasonal courgettes just waiting to be cooked (some from my veg box, some given) I thought I better make something to celebrate them a little.

You know I love a good dip–and this might just be my new favourite. Roast courgettes combined with some classic pesto ingredients; fresh basil, pine nuts, olive oil, garlic and lemon. Today I added some white miso for extra flavour and it works beautifully.

Using the courgettes in the pesto means you can add less oil–but add a little more if you like.

The pesto is brilliant on these lovely flatbreads made with just flour, yogurt and a good pinch of salt. But also amazing on pasta, toast or just with lots of charred veg piled on top.

As I’ve got tons of courgette to use (and I love it) I topped the flatbreads on some smokey charred courgette and mushrooms–but top with your favourite veggies!

I hope you love it, much love. Niki xxx.

    Just lovely! This came together quickly and was the perfect dinner size for two after a large lunch. I subbed walnuts for the pine nuts, as that was what I had on hand. Fluffy flatbreads for the win.

  2. I love the sound of this BUT why do you not use a problem weight measure fir the courgettes? What on earth does 2 courgettes mean? Seriously! The ones out of the garden are 10-12 cm long, The ones from the fruit shop are about 18 cm and the last lot from farmers market (when we could go to such things) were over 35! Why make us guess. Please weigh your veg. Thank you for reading my rant


    1. I hear you.
      I used the very average type you usually get (about 200g).
      But if they are bigger or smaller – the recipe still works
      Love, Niki xxx
