I’m forever finding new ways to cook zucchini since I buy them often and they’re pretty versatile. Obviously I love the taste, especially when they’re grilled and drizzled with some good olive oil – but repetition of any kind bores me…

So here goes a new recipe for a zucchini gratin!

You will need:

– 1 large or 2 medium zucchini / courgettes, sliced evenly

– 2 cloves of garlic, minced

– 1/2 cup fresh cream

– 1/2 cup Panko or breadcrumbs

– 1/4 cup grated Parmesan

– 1 tablespoon butter or coconut oil

How to make it:

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.

Melt the coconut oil or butter in a pan and fry the zucchini and garlic for about 6-8 minutes until the slices start to crisp up. Stir to cook evenly.

Add the fresh cream and stir for another few minutes until the mixture gets thicker. Turn off the heat and mix in half your Panko and half your grated Parmesan.




Pour gently into an oven dish and sprinkle the remaining Panko and Parmesan over the top.




Place in the middle of the oven for about 15 minutes until the top starts to brown.

This recipe reheats well and can be served alone or as a side dish.
