Ingredient of the Month: June
Courgettes are at their best from June to October. Incredibly versatile, courgettes can be eaten raw or cooked, and prepared in many different ways. Try in a chopped vegetable salad, as part of a light pasta dish or risotto, or simply steamed with a little salt and pepper. When choosing courgettes, go for smaller, younger varieties which have more flavour than their larger counterparts, and opt for courgettes that are shiny and plump, and heavy for their size.
