Method

  1. Chop the courgettes into large chunks, then boil or steam until tender, about 5 mins. Tip into a colander and lightly press out as much liquid as possible using a potato masher or fork, then chop the courgettes into smaller pieces.

  2. Heat the oil in a pan, add the garlic and tomatoes, then fry briefly until the tomatoes are just softening. Stir in the courgettes and heat through, then add the chopped parsley or coriander and stir through. Keep warm.

  3. Season the lamb steaks and grill for 3-4 mins each side. Serve with the tomato & courgette crush on the side.

This was delicious! I pan fried the courgette instead of boling, but otherwise didn't change it. Would go with any type of meat I think.

Delicious. Easy to make. We used courgettes and tomatoes from the garden and served with turkey breast instead of lamb. Will make this again.

Delicious and easy to make. Used our own home grown courgettes and tomatoes and served with turkey breast.

This was really tasty, quick and easy. I used a rather large courgette out of the garden and a mixture of home grown tomatoes, I also used rosemary instead of parsley or coriander. I think the courgette and tomato combination would be very nice with pasta as a light summer lunchtime dish.

This was a really tasty dish, we cooked it as part of a birthday meal for my mum. It was enjoyed by all, including my Dad, who doesn't hold back with criticism.
The steaks were really juicy, and it was relatively straight-forward to make.

This was delicious. I think I undercooked the courgette as it didn’t mash very well but we enjoyed it all the same. May try it with chicken next time as a cheaper alternative.

Very quick and easy. Good with the lamb barbequed. Add a bit of chilli to give it a kick!

This was great. It took me hardly any time at all and it tasted great too. My family loves it too. A PERFECT recipe for beginners. I would add some new potatoes and mint sauce to make it taste better. Add onions in the crush too!!!
