Loved this!! So easy to make! (And quite healthy too.) Only thing to add is that I added 2 tablespoons of tahini (instead of 1) as wouldn't have tasted much of it otherwise!

Lovely flavour - would definitely serve more than 2 as part of a mezze, it makes plenty. Just a warning to others that my courgettes took twice as long to cook as the recipe stated. Otherwise, very easy to make and a nice, relatively low-cal dip.
