Vegan slow cooked courgettes


This is a wonderful recipe that makes creamy and sweet courgette which can then be mixed with any form of pasta for a quick and simple dinner


  • 1 courgette per person
  • 1 garlic clove per person
  • Lemon juice

Optional extras

  • soya cream
  • vegan crème fraîche
  • vegan soft cheese

Slice the courgette thinly to about 3 mm thick, place in either a saucepan or frying pan on a very low heat with some oil. Initially you might think the heat is too low, but if you leave the courgettes to cook slowly the natural sugars will come out and you will have the most amazingly sweet courgette sauce. This usually takes about 40 min.

About 5 min towards the end add in a finely chopped garlic clove (if you don’t like your dish to be too strong then add this little earlier), a squeeze of lemon juice and stir through.

If you want an even creamy sauce then add any combination of soya cream, crème fraîche or soft cheese to get the texture you want.

Make sure everything is piping hot before serving with pasta.
