Chargrilled courgettes & tomatoes
Cut 24 baby courgettes in half lengthways. Put into a bowl with 2 tbsp olive oil, 1 crushed garlic clove and seasoning, then toss together. Leave to stand for 10 mins, or up to 4 hrs. Drizzle a little oil over 8 bunches cherry vine tomatoes. Put courgettes and tomatoes onto the bars of the barbecue, directly over the coals. Cook for 4-5 mins, turning the courgettes halfway through, until tomatoes and courgettes are charred and starting to blister. Dress with a little more olive oil.
