Simple zucchini (courgette) pasta sauce

/
When the zucchini glut is upon us, we have this a couple of times a week. It’s light but fragrant and satisfying.

Panzanella ~ Tuscan bread and tomato salad

/
This is a great dish to make a couple of hours in advance in the summer, to have ready waiting for you in the fridge when you get back home. It is light yet satisfying.

Aubergine (Eggplant) Caviar with lemon and yogurt

/
This eggplant caviar is fresh and lemony. A little cumin gives it a hint of the Middle East.

Aubergine (Eggplant) Crostini

/
Crostini are little appetizers that you can invent yourself depending on what’s in season and what ingredients you happen to have around. It is easy to cook eggplant in too much oil, since it is something of an oil sponge… this recipe seals the eggplant before oil is added so that you use less oil.

Tomato and Basil bruschetta

/
In Italian, this simple but delicious tomato appetizer is pronounced "Brusketta". Obviously, use the tastiest tomatoes that you can get hold of. Often, cherry tomatoes have a lot more flavour than larger varieties.
