    Chargrilled Courgettes with Sage

    These courgettes are gorgeous served freshly cooked or as a chilled salad. White balsamic vinegar adds a full, sweet flavour but you can substitute white wine vinegar, if you like.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 5 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 8


    • ½ pack fresh sage, finely chopped
    • 6 tbsp olive oil
    • 1kg courgettes, thinly sliced lengthways
    • 4 tbsp Acetum Balsamico Bianco (white balsamic vinegar)


    1. Preheat a griddle pan until hot. Mix the sage with 4 tablespoons oil and season.
    2. Brush the undersides of the courgettes with a little sage oil, then lay the courgettes in the pan. Cook in 3-4 batches for about 3 minutes on each side until browned, brushing with oil before turning them. Arrange on a serving plate.
    3. Mix together the remaining oil and the vinegar. Season and pour over the courgettes. Cool and chill, or serve warm.
