Vegetarian Vegetables Accompaniment
Courgettes, (Zucchini) sliced
tbsp Soured Cream
Cheddar Cheese, grated
tbsp Fresh White Breadcrumbs
Place the sliced courgettes in a saucepan and pour in enough water to
cover. Add a pinch of salt. Bring the
water quickly to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer
for about 5 minutes until tender but still firm. Drain thoroughly and mash well or put in food processor and process to a coarse
puree. Heat the oven to 170C, 325F, Gas mark 3.
Melt the butter in a frying-pan over medium heat, add the onion and fry until transparent. Add the fried onion to the courgette
puree, together with the eggs, soured cream and
3 tbsp of the grated cheese. Blend again until thoroughly mixed,
and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Sprinkle 3 tbsp of the remaining cheese over the base of a shallow, flameproof dish. Pour in the courgette mixture. Combine the
breadcrumbs with the rest of the cheese and
sprinkle evenly over the surface of the puree.
Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes, or until set. Serve immediately.
