Zucchini, 1 large or 2 medium

2 tblsp olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Smoked cheese
Mint, shredded
Blueberries or cherry tomatoes


Cut the zucchini in long strips, If using a large zucchini, remove the seeds from out of the middle. Small zucchinis don’t need their seeds removed.
Cut zucchini into matchsticks, 1 cm thick, salt them very lightly


Drizzle olive oil into the frypan

Place zucchini strips in frypan, side by side – don’t let them pile on top of each other
Cook them on medium heat. When coloured on one side turn them over. It doesn’t take long for the zucchini to colour up.


Lie them out on a long plate, shred some shredded mint, lightly season with pepper & sprinkle with crumbled/grated smoked cheese on top.


For colour add blueberries or cherry tomatoes or little shake of paprika.
