  • 1 3/4 lb baby courgettes
  • 5 floz single cream
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tbsp chopped mint
  • plain flour
  • 2 oz butter
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • salt and pepper


  • Trim off the ends of the courgettes. Wash and dry them and cut into thick rounds. Place these in a bowl, dust with flour and coat all the pieces, turning them over and mixing by hand.
  • Tap the bottom of the bowl on the work surface to make any excess flour fall to the bottom.
  • Heat the butter with the oil in a large frying pan and when very hot add the courgette rounds, leaving the unwanted flour behind in the bowl; fry over a moderately high heat for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring continuously.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook gently for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the courgettes are tender but still crisp.
  • Season with a little salt and pepper, pour in the cream, add the parsley and mint and continue cooking while stirring gently over a low heat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Serve very hot.
