If you fancy jazzing up courgette a little to serve as a side then courgette fritters are a simple way to do this. Add a poached egg on top and you have a tasty lunch or starter.
1 large courgette
1 tbsp self-raising flour
Ground black pepper
Finely grated Cheddar cheese
Peel the courgette and then grate it into a bowl. Press down with a saucer to squeeze out some of the moisture and carefully drain away the liquid. Add the other ingredients and squish handfuls of the mixture together and flatten to form fritters. Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the fritters for 5 minutes on each side.
