Dried courgettes: courgette and potato with tomato sauce

I’m on a quest to find and try out tasty recipes to cook with the vegetables we dried throughout the summer (more info). All the recipes I like will be put up on the blog.

DRIED COURGETTE, POTATO AND HAM IN A TOMATO SAUCE

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups dried courgettes, put into boiling water to soak in the morning
  • 100g chopped ham
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup thick tomato sauce
  • 2 medium potatoes, cut into chunks
  • splash extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • salt and pepper

METHOD

  1. Heat the oil in a sauté pan.
  2. Add the chopped garlic and gently fry for a minute or so to soften.
  3. Add the ham and fry for another couple of minutes.
  4. Drain the soaked courgettes and add to the pan, together with the potato, tomato sauce, stock cube and a cup of water.
  5. Season with salt and pepper and bring to the boil.
  6. Cover and cook gently for 30 minutes or so until the potatoes are soft, adding more water as necessary.
